Spotted a Tesla in Dallas



Guy was pretty nice Said he'd had the car a week or two and that it was so quiet and fast that he unintentionally gets on people's butts in traffic. Terrible problem to have!

where was it?

I'm glad to see more EV's popping in Dallas now. Rusty Wallis Motors is now dealing Kandi Kars, a NEV.

There is a dark side of me that wants to try ICE to EV conversion someday, maybe once my DD engine croaks and battery prices have dropped.

Galleria area. I looked into converting a Miata to EV, but the weight penalty is just too high. Maybe if the LI batteries get cheaper & better it might be more doable.

I was going to fedex in Needham, MA and this old guy with a lexus parked next to me and said his daughter works in Tesla, while I was wondering in my head "is she hot?", he went along and blabbed about that Tesla is faster, and quiter, etc... and i told him, "yea...but it will run out of battery...as I pass it". He had a mind freeze for 2 seconds as I walked away...
