    Forgot to mention, 10(?) days ago, I saw a Cybertruck drive by me, 17 miles east of the Salish Sea(Puget Sound). Not paying attention to EVs on the road much. But the Cybertruck is very hard NOT to notice, among all the ICE vehicles. Matter of fact, it is hard NOT to notice even among trucks, whether ICE or EV.

    Now the Cybertruck will be hard to notice at all, because they stopped production. Hopefully, the production halt will be quickly remedied, & the rumored accelerator pedal problem is corrected.

    What an abortion ! Much uglier than the Model X or Y, which are pretty darned homely.

    The Cybertruck is evidence that Off-World aliens are here, & accidentally tipped their hands.....or claws, paws, tentacles or whatever they have on anything extending from anything they have. & I haven't mentioned if there are more than one type of alien. We're back to "Valerian & the City of a 1000 Planets"....which may be an understatement. Could Heaven be an understatement?

    Yeah, but the .24 and .23 Cd respectively are beautiful to me. ;)

    Transferring over from another thread, because....it belongs here:

    & yesterday, I had my 3rd sighting of a Tesla Cybertruck. It was parked, & I should have stopped & looked at it closely, but I didn't. I'm not a fan of trucks in general. The Tesla Cybertruck doesn't improve my attitude toward them, either.

    For the 4th time I saw the Tesla Cybertruck. Yes, I talked to the fellow & he lives near by. Got to see the Cybertruck close. The fit&finish is sweet & can't be hidden. The long straight lines are very long & very straight. Standing next to it, I like it more than I did before. Looking very close at the Cybertruck, I REALLY like it. However, any damage to the straight lines of the Cybertruck will ruin the "styling" of the truck. Low damages will be "common". The general bangs, bumps & dents, like on normal Fossil Fuel trunks can NOT be tolerated & worn as "badges of honor". Repair the Cybertruck....or get ready for the public to tsk tsk at your "broken down" vehicle.
    Huge wheels/tires....HUGE WHEELS/TIRES! Just what rich, macho men (& women) want. Do the wheel/tire sets cost more than my last THREE new cars cost.....combined? Maybe the huge wheels/tires can reduce some of the expected low damages.

    Here's one wrapped in black. Seen in a Tesla owners post. He said it was DIY for $500 which is good.

    The MOOD of the Stainless Steel Cybertruck is the MOOD Tesla wanted to convey. The MOOD of the Black Cybertruck is only the MOOD of the Cybertruck owner.
    Yes, I don't like black....or white....or gray(includes grey).....or silver. Those aren't colors. Green, Blue, Red, Maroon, Yellow....even Purple. Yeah, those are COLORS.

    I imagine the flat surfaces are easier to wrap than curved.

    That was my thought as well.

    The Cybertruck : answer to a question that nobody asked.

    No matter what shape, I bet I could screw up any surface. :confused:
