How I Aged Almost Overnight - mikecyc72usa


If you recall, I had some issues with my Spitfire enroute to Hilton Head, SC to visit my parents for Christmas. Well, it's still there, and I drove my mom's 96 Miata back to Austin, TX.

How The Tesla Model X's Falcon Wing Doors May Well Ruin The Company - Joe6pack

When I first read that the Model X would go into production with these doors I thought it was possibly the single stupidest corporate decision since "New Coke"... I am not a Tesla hater. Au Contraire. My daily driver is a 2012 Nissan Leaf and if I had the available cash, it would instead be a Model S. No, I am quite the fan of Tesla.
