    I'd own one if I could afford one, but...

    I live between Colgate and Hamilton University.
    Local high school girl (18) got a new Model 3 Performance for her senior year...nice.
    This HS charges $150 a year for student parking!?!?!?

    Daddy attends multiple town and school board meetings DEMANDING that they install a charging station at her parking spot...and they do.

    She lives less than a mile from school.

    I want to say something snarky, but I'm surprisingly ok with it.

    The batteries in the Tesla are a bad design. The walls inside the battery melt and the battery turns into a bomb. Unless Musk does something his back to the future car is going to a thing of the past.

    California is set for the first implement of electric car mandates.

    The days of owning a Vette, a Firebird are going to be nice to look at in your garage but banned on the highway.

    Bet Leno is going to have a $hit-fit.

    My point: Phuck all you talking sh*t about California; bunch of jealous little bitches. We endure wildfires, earthquakes, riots, shitty out of town tourists, drought, etc. and we still hang tougher than some of you phuckers talking shit. We keep making sh*t for y'all to consume (music, movies, technology, etc). We do then y'all watch us do.

    Tesla is quick i'll give it that, but it's ugly, doesn't sound right, has no historical value, and just isn't as cool.
    I'll stick to the sexy Vette.
