What did you see on the road today?


Recommended Posts

No pictures fortunately.  But while following one of the Cybertrucks, I spotted another one coming the other direction.  First time I've seen more than one at the same time.  Sometimes an ugly car will grow on you.  But I don't see it happening with this one.

Saw a red-pearl-wrapped Cybertruck, and got to look it over close up. Liked it much more than I expected. It's huge and has a lot of presence in reality. Panel fit is excellent and most of the big flat panels are dead-straight, not an easy thing to get right from a manufacturing standpoint. Though people complain about the simplified interior, it works perfectly with the overall sci-fi-movie-vehicle feel of the thing.

One of the quarters was a little wavy, and I suspect the reason this one was wrapped was because of mild body damage. There were other signs of kinda idiot abuse of something so expensive, too.

Gotta give ol' Elon props for having the nads to actually series-build something so totally crazy-different.

Anyway, once they hit the dead-battery used market, swapping real Hummer guts into one just might be the idea that keeps me from running out of steam.   

A multi-fuel diesel Cybertruck wearing camo, an external roll-cage, and huge lights blasting through the desert running on distilled cactus juice has a lot of appeal.  B)

I usually see the coolest cars at Home Depot. Registration says it's a 1969. Saw a Tesla Cyber Truck the other day, but I didn't get a pic.

I always liked this body style of BMW wagons, you don't see them much anymore. The Cybertruck passed me on the way home from the show yesterday on a rare moment of empty I-4. For those in Florida, you know!

Our youngest son has a BMW Wagon like that and in that colour here in the UK we have lots of them. I'm gratefull they don't do Cybertrucks in right hand drive as we wouldn't have room for them on our roads, plus we don't have the infrastructure to charge EV's anyway. Plus again they are far too expensive to buy any EV, and the shocker is the price of a battery replacement. In a national paper with a motoring section Q&A, a guy has bought an 11 year old Toyota Hybrid he says is very sluggish, and asks what he should do after being told that a new battery pack for that model is £6000 after buying it fro £2500, the expert said 'Find a car dumping yard to take it away',  but will cost £150 to do that!
