    Greetings fellow Model 3 Maniacs!
    So surprised to discover yesterday there's a new dedicated Model 3 forum that's appeared, and run by a fellow Canadian no less. I clearly don't get out enough on the web (although my better half might strongly disagree with that statement).
    My story: Basically an ICE-head who's addicted to anything that moves, mostly cars, bikes and planes. I work in the alloy wheel business so this just feeds the flames. As a died-in-the-wool hydrocarbon addict I've struggled to reconcile my passion with how bad it is for the planet, that is until Tesla appeared and made it clear that one can be both green AND fast. The best part of course is with Model 3 we can now make that Green, Fast and Affordable :D. Hey Trev, there's an idea for your next shirt!
    I have a lot of catching up to do here, happy to see some familiar avatars from The Other Forum (who might in turn recognize me from my camping exploits) and looking forward to meeting many new ones.

    Regards,

    MH

      Welcome to the forum! Was good getting to know you in the private message you sent yesterday.

      Those of you know don't know, @Mad Hungarian was the first in line @ the Montreal Tesla store and had a cool tent with the "Evolve" thing going on.

      Hi MH nice to see you here , It was nice meeting you when you were camped out in front of the Tesla store the day before the registration event.
      Good to see the cold hasn't cooled your enthusiasm.

      Hey Sandage, nice to see you here too!
      No amount of cold can dull my enthusiasm for the 3, I just haven't been as active in the community since the reveal as I pretty much blew my allotted quarterly slave-to-a-cause hours leading up to that. In the interests of preventing spousal revolt I've had to dial back the crazy some and take interest again in things non-Tesla, although somehow the clothing campaign didn't set off the alarm. Probably as it's for a good cause and has me talking about something other than projected battery capacities or rumors of HUD :D

          Cool, thanks for posting. I only ever saw the first one EV and More put up where they followed me in at door opening. Great seeing the interviews with so many others that were there overnight and in the morning with us, including you two. Your wife may have stolen the show, but you must admit she's quite the spokesperson for the EV movement!

          Hey, no fair... I don't even have my own yet!
          Glad you like it :)
          I'm going to be running a second batch of these shortly for anyone who's interested, just waiting on word from Plug in America on when they want to announce it. News as it happens...

          Cool!
          Now we need you to model it like Trev, and just to one-up him I suggest you add the official Model 3 Gang Sign :D

            Hi from Mississauga! Just bought one of your Evolve shirts, looking forward to wearing it proudly. As my buddy Charles says we are all latent Hungarians. Oh to be back in Budapest floating in the baths at the Gellert! Cheers

            Hi Jaaspal, yes, as Trev pointed out the link is in his earlier post up top with my tent pic, but you can also click the link in my signature to get to the site.
            Note that right now the campaign is in "reservation" mode as I'm waiting for a announcement on it from Plug In America shortly to re-launch. You can still click on the "I still want one" button and this will put a reservation in and flag you when the orders are ready to be taken, which should be in a few days. I'll also post up a "re-boot" announcement when that happens.

            Hey Andrew, thanks for supporting the cause!
            I wish I could say I've had the chance to try out the baths at the Gellert, but I've yet to make the pilgrimage to my ancestral homeland. Maybe if my TSLA stash takes off as so many of us hope I'll be able to one day check it off the list during a Model 3 world tour :D
