    Hey all,
    Fellow reservation holder. I just reserved the car a couple weeks ago - was going to back when reservations opened last year, but wanted to invest in something else at the time. Anyways, finally took the plunge for a few reasons:
    I believe in the future of electric cars, though I have a love/hate relationship with batteries.
    I find Elon to be an exceptionally interesting person to follow and want to support him and his efforts any way I can (and since I don't work for him, my money will have to do for now).
    I want to support a company that manufactures their product here in the US while also being innovative.
    Model 3 looks cool too.

    I currently have a few cars, and driving has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. Cars are borderline a passion, and I see electric vehicles as being the next step for them - just because there's no ICE, doesn't make me love an electric car any more or less. I also have evolving feelings about software (being a software QA guy myself), which has largely made me leery of such heavily software driven cars (in reality, all cars these days are, just most electronics are caked under lots of grease and crud), from a trust and a, shall we say, transcendental perspective.

    Anyways, hi! I'm really looking forward to the future!

      @Logan Rossignol , welcome... and hi from a somewhat old(er) guy on the other side of the water! :D
      Good to see motivated new members join our ever larger community of T≡SLA, specifically Model ≡ aficionados!
      This is an increasingly diverse, typically well informed, engaged, sometimes quite creative & often prone to cracking jokes!!

      A great place to be for the (quite) several months you'll be waiting for your Model ≡... Good news is, a lot of months still have a while to go too and will benefit from the experience of the early owners! :):rainbow:

        Logan, welcome to the forum! I'm also in a Florida and in software development (filling the role of product owner).

        Where in Florida are you? I'd be glad to take you for a spin when mine comes in if you're anywhere nearby.

        Florida here too. NW FL in Pensacola. Anybody close by? I made my reservation toward the end of April 2016. It would be nice to know when others in FL start getting their cars. That way I might get an idea when I might be getting close. Feel free to email anytime: brownsinfl@gmail.com

        Unfortunately we are no where near each other. I'm down in the Fort Lauderdale area.

          I would love a test drive with you when you get your Model 3. I live in Ottawa but it would be a good excuse for a road trip to check out the new wheels.
