New Car

After two years and two months of waiting, I finally got the call and was able to pick up my Model 3. There's lots of sensationalist stuff in the news about Tesla lately, so I wanted to share that the cars are real and super fun. I know at least a few Wing Commander fans who are big EV people, so I figure there's probably a few more out there who would be interested in the pictures too. And for anyone thinking about picking up an electric car, I would highly recommend it!

That is an amazing smile, I don't think I've ever sported a smile like that.

You know, now that you mention it, I'm not sure I've ever seen a ChrisReid photo without that smile :). I think it's a trademark.

I was pretty happy to finally sign everything over! The Model 3 doesn't have ludicrous mode, but it's still about three times faster than my old car. Just washed it for the first time and the roof has a crazy color effect when wet due to the tint/filtering.

Yeah, I got solar panels installed a while back and had them route a 240 volt NEMA 14-50 at the same time.

There's no engine, since it's a Tesla, just bonus storage space and a large crumple zone under the hood. No oil changes, spark plugs, belts, etc. The one cap there in the picture is for the only fluid you can add - for the windshield cleaner.
