    Such a cool car.  But man I’d be afraid to drive it any place that isn’t really really flat.

    End qoute:

    I'm guessing it has bags, to make it drivable.

    I would imagine it’s riding on air bags so they lift it up a few inches while driving. Only drop when parked.

  • I am betting that car has bags.  No other way to get over a speed bump.

  • You’re letting a convertible cougar rot, good way to piss off the car gods. Nice pic though. My dad had one always loved the lines.

    Weather is nice so all the cars in the SW are coming out.  I was too slow for a McLaren 720s in powder blue, but I managed to capture this beast.

    Actually my brother in law is an auto body guy and they are going to start doing some work on it now that they finished putting up a shop on their property. It is weird how life gets in the way and things like cars just go to the wayside.

    I knew Tesla was working on a semi, but this is the first photo I've seen of it.  If the meme is accurate (no guarantee) the specs are pretty impressive, too.

    I haven't seen any images of that particular semi but there was some spy shots posted last year with the Tesla semi.

    Agreed, that part didn't make any sense.  
    I do have one of those VHS-sized batteries in both of my vehicles, can recharge your phone and jump-start your vehicle (once); a co-worker even fired up her dead F-350 up at the lake with one of those things; cool!

    My family builds and remodels gas stations (I’m not in that business) and EV charging is a hot topic. For some it’s taboo, others are embracing it to get people to spend money inside of their stores while waiting for charging. 7-11 stations are one of those. Wouldn’t mind buying some desert land between here and Vegas to put in an EV truck stop, could be a good venture.
    Your family needs to familiarize themselves with the now-defunct "Stuckey's" franchise; there may be a gold mine there.   ;)
    EDIT:  And any property within NV could make multiples of that gold mine!

    What a cool time capsule. Could you imagine owning a car of that value but never getting to truly enjoy it? The real value is it being number matching and low miles. Knowing each mile you put on it could hurt the overall value and the original low mile mark. I suppose you can just call it art and look at it. The temptation though.....

    Cars are meant to be driven. I'd drive the crap outta that thing. If I ever get to a point in life to afford something like that it won't be a trailer queen. I'll drive it constantly. Never understood having a car and not driving it. No matter the rarity. If I can afford a $359k car I don't give a crap about resale value.

    I guess it could be viewed like a virgin trophy wife.  But I digress and any further could challenge this thread.

    Nice!  Long way from home.  We should try to repatriate it.

    You think they'd be willing to trade it in return for Prince Harry?
