    Hi! My name is Joe. I've been lurking on the forums here for a while. I was a little late to the game in terms of reserving a Model 3, but am going First Production and my estimated date is sometime between April and June. My birthday is April 3rd, and that would be an amazing birthday present, but probably a little too much to expect to get it that early in the date range.

    Anyway...hi!

    Hi Joe,

    I'm from the Pelham/Alabaster area. There is another guy(can't remember his name off the top of my head) from around Arab.

    Alabama is starting to get well represented, which is nice because I rarely see Telsas in the state.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everybody! I can't wait to read about it as people start to get their cars.

    I live in Jacksonville, but I work in Birmingham. Really looking forward to having autopilot for that drive.

    You too!

    I'm in Jacksonville, Alabama though. It should be pretty tame by the time it gets to me.

    You're not alone. Even a lot of people in Alabama assume I mean Florida when I say Jacksonville.

    They're always like, "you commute from where?"

    It's an hour and a half drive, but it'd be a lot more if I was coming from Florida. LOL

    Thanks man. I'm looking forward to it. My estimated range has been pushed back to August - October now, but I'll get it when I get it I guess. My current car should be able to last me until whenever I actually get my 3.

    My wife bought me some chances to win Kimbal Musk's Model 3 as a surprise birthday present. I seriously doubt I'll win, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. That would get me a Model 3 a LOT sooner...LOL
