Come on now, 15 Gigawatts, to charge 12v batteries? How can that be, even with Ford batteries?

I think I set a record today, spotted 2 Teslas, 2 red and 1 black -- first one was on I-95 this morning as we were jammed up.  There was an '85' emblem on the right side on the rear which I think is the extended range package.  Pretty nice looking!

I got caught in traffic in metro Vancouver in January and saw at least 5 Tesla's in a 4 block stretch of the main road heading out of Stanley park.  First time I spotted on in the wild, and suddenly I was in a pack of them.

When we were in Vancouver last summer we saw quite a few around the city.

 

Isn't Stanley Park a beautiful place to go? My wife & I took the city bus to get there and the city bus was electric too!

With everything so close and nearby, not to mention the heavy traffic and no real highway system, Vancouverites are trapped in the city. So a Tesla makes a lot of sense and with so much Asian money floating around it's understandable. Stanley Park is THE place to see in the city, but the whole BC coast is drop dead beautiful. Used to live there and then.....oh well that's history. Sigh!

I saw a Tesla in some TV show, the door handles move out when you open the door, pretty cool, bout would hate to have that break like our one touch windows do.

I actually saw a Tesla Roadster a month ago. Pretty rare compared to the Model S.

Also, I saw two Volts this morning on the way to work.

I want to move there when I retire, but I don't think I'll be able to afford that.  We have a condo at Whistler that I should have sold in the frenzy ahead of the Olympics.

Last Saturday I was planning a trip to my Dealer in Los Angeles.

As usual, I looked at the CalTrans traffic map on my computer to see if I could even get there, given our horrible traffic.

I noticed an incident on the busiest freeway with CHP on scene, a Tesla was blocking the HOV lane.

The CHP notes on that incident mentioned that they could not find a tow truck able to move the car, it was too low to the ground.

 

Anyway, one hour later I was driving at that exact spot and I noticed a CHP car sitting on the inside shoulder lane with it's red/blue lights flashing.

The Tesla was still there, dead - the CHP had not found a single tow truck willing to pick up the Tesla.

Somehow they had moved it to the side of the road to unblock that super busy part of the HOV lane.

Many times I've seen Tesla's around here being put on flatbed tow trucks but that day none were to be found.

 

Yes, they are nice looking cars, even with a dead battery on the side of the road.

 

(BTW, that CalTrans website map is very handy, lots of info, cameras, CHP/police info with times, locations and incident specific info)

Our son has a Tesla. He lives in our area (Portland, Oregon) and has used it on trips to Seattle and "Silicon Valley" as well as around the Oregon Coast. His fiancée is considering an electric or plug-in hybrid for her next car. "Alternative" driving seems to be running in our family (my late parents and grandparents had a few diesels in the 60's to 80's).

Some day I want a car that runs on goats milk. Gets you where you are going and gives cheese as a by product.

 

Don't ask where I came up with such a BAAAAAAAD idea, it just popped into my head.

Sorry, I was farming for laughs. Looks more like I got plowed under.  I have a habit of making cheesy jokes that are a little too corny. And yes I AM milking it.

I'm on a roll today, I had one of the women here in the office laughing so hard tears were rolling down her face.  We got a new refrigerator today, so when I got the call they were on the way I called my wife and talked to her in a chinese voice, it made my coworker laugh uncontrollably.

Bad puns are an addiction for me. I once said that I wanted to name my car Poetic so that I could wax Poetic. I also once said that I wanted to throw a book of poems out a window so that I could see poetry in motion. Rimshot!

The Edmonds Tesla has had it drive train replaced four times since they started testing it.  That's $15K each time.  It has come out that many other owners have had the same problem.  Tesla is now saying that the actual problem was not in the drive train and that a 50 cent shim in another area and some adjustment to the wiring fixes it.  The drive trains were replaced as a quick way to please their customers.
