True story. Talk about a turd of a day so far. This morning, traffic was crappy to the extreme. And I mean REALLY shitty. Defecately a bad situation on the roadway, but everyone minded their manures and stayed friendly. It was kind of a wasted morning because I haven’t even bedung to get to my workload.
Business up front...
On September 19, 2018, a good friend/neighbor of mine was driving down a road that he, my wife, and I all traverse every day when a single engine plane owned by the Drug Enforcement Agency crash landed in front of him and hit his Model X that he and his young son were in. Cue the ensuing absurdity of the auto…
Not only did this guy have the V emblem on the back of the DTS, but the son of a bitch fully committed to his lying liar ways by putting Vs on the sides AND painting the brake calipers red.
It was purchased for a good cause (that will warrant its own write up soon), so no dick jokes. But HOLY HELL is this F-650 truck cool!
It’s beige. It has a couple of door dings. But otherwise, it’s a MINT 3-PEDAL, 40,000 MILE PIECE OF EASTERN BLOC HISTORY! And it could be yours for the low low price of $3,250 (OBO).
Ed and I should do the Cannonball together sometime.
...about their concerns regarding Tesla’s financial health/viability as a company, and the fanbois were laughing, insisting that all was well in the Musk-iverse?
As seen on a Camaro ZL1 this evening. I didn’t hear him blaring any Whitesnake or Def Leppard, though.
Better than a
Veyron Lambo when it comes to driving into water.
Christ, Musk, is it really that hard to not act like a total jack ass? All you have to do is run your companies and not make waves on social media. Why is this so difficult a concept to grasp?
The owner that was struck by a crash-landing plane full of DEA agents credits his Tesla for keeping him safe during the event. His young son was in the car with him; neither of them were injured. Here’s the close up photos!
Planes fly over me all the damned time (including this morning) while I drive down the road, because it’s in the flight path of the local regional airport. Glad I didn’t leave work early today.
I look at TSLA’s price on my desktop station. It’s up almost 2%. I roll my eyes. Less than a minute later, my phone goes off with this alert, and BAM the stock is down almost 3% (now over 4% down). The lesson here:
...that this Lam... Bugatti Veyron, arguably the most famous Veyron in the entire world, was for sale in Lufkin, Texas for $300,000? One catch, though:
Tesla’s Chief Accounting Officer has just resigned after little more than a month on the job, citing the “pace” of the company and the unexpected job publicity. Okay. But then, their “Chief People Officer” (AKA Head of HR) quit after going on hyattus 15 months into the gig. What say you, Oppo: Warning signs for the…
These pics are from a few years ago, watching Bandit himself auction off his own personal Trans Am. May the Smokies between here and heaven be busy, and may the highways be clear.
