Yes, it's ugly

Post by Tom »

When this car was announced, I looked at my phone to see if it was April 1st yet. I mean, look at the thing. You can't proudly announce the introduction of this aberration in all seriousness, can you?
After the first stunned laughter and incredulity wore off and the memes disappeared off the internet, it's still here. Apparently, Elon's finally gone completely nuts. He gave a five-year-old a ruler and a marker and told him to design a car. Yes, the wheels had to be round.
The model's frankly here because it was cheap and it's a great discussion piece. It was made by an unnamed Chinese company, it's mostly diecast and it's 1:64. Not sure if I'd spend 1:43 money on this anyway

I don't think I could spend 1:64 money for it ;)

Well I like it. We can't help it if you Prius hybrid driving pussies can't put down your soy lattes and appreciate a real man's truck :D .

As a concept car/truck collector I would like to have a model of it.. We've already seen many weird concept models in 1/43, but if this thing really gets to be produced in this shape I wouldn't bother getting a model..

I hate it. But I want it for novelty purposes. It's stupidly ugly. But it seems it has its fans....

I will believe it's a real mans truck when I see one working the oil fields.
More than likely if one is even close it will be the lease holder driving down to the bank. :lol:

I don't think the roughnecks are into electric vehicles. You might see one at the wind farm though.
