ALERT for those who reserved a Model 3:
I just got signed up for a PAID phone interview by a market researcher. He's looking for more participants who reserved Model 3.

If interested, call him ASAP. Here's the info copied from the Facebook contact I received:

His name is Jason Heinl.
I work for a market research company in Los Angeles, CA and i'm hosting a Paid Research Study starting this Monday. - $75 for 20 minute survey over the phone for anyone who has pre-ordered the Model 3. Reach me at (818) 530-1013 if you'd like to schedule an appointment.

So yesterday after leaving the meet (and that was a LONG meet!! :shock: ) and sitting in traffic on the 60, we ran across a "fleet" of 3 Mirai's with Longo plates on them :roll:

So as I pulled up next to them I rolled down my window and gave a BIG THUMBS DOWN :lol: :lol: (I heard a few a honks :P )

But as their side caught back up to us, I rolled down my window again and started talking to the guy in the lead car, he said
since they are doing so many test drives and no one is buying, the ONLY PLACE TO FILL UP IS AQMD Diamond Bar so they take them all AT ONCE
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Hilda and I couldn't believe it.. what a waste of resources, development costs and tax payers $$$ spent on that ugly a$$ car. And still no where to really fill them up...

Their route... 34mi just to fill :roll:

Now only if Toyota would have spent the $$$'s that went into that on BEV's instead... :roll:

Wow! I saw you guys checking them out also. I was wondering why there was a convoy of 3 and did not have plates or temp reg. It's too bad they stopped the rav and are doing this.

Wow, Jason, thanks for great report and photos on Toyota H2 vehicles you spotted. I agree they are big waste. I would not have known what I was looking at.

I have posted an update in the Grid Scale thread on the very first Offshore wind farm in the U.S., which will go live in a few months.

I added another post in the same thread about the crazy politics of taxing wind power in WY.

Strange, apparently I forgot to post about the last Gathering.
We had 18 bodies, with 4 ladies, with a hard-core group of 12 still there around noon.
It seems that being able to turn the music off in the meeting room helps.
Cheers, Gary

Our next Gathering is a week from today, at the Hometown Buffet on 17th Street
in Santa Ana. It is located 2 blocks East of the I-5 freeway. CU there ... but probably
still without my Tesla.
