Stroke warning! Ford lovers: do NOT read this comment.

Drive the Cybertruck to the jobsite, ride your lightweight dual sport motorcycle home every night until the contract is done. Drag a trailerload of lawn equipment around town all day, charging just like you would plug in the electric hedgetrimmer (especially at homes with solar panels). Buy two Cybertrucks, so one can charge on the odd days from solar roof while you drive the other one. Work the night shift and charge from your solar panels during the day. Enjoy the time off from not changing oil and replacing transmissions (As the Ford Forum guy says, “In Soviet Russia, tranny blow YOU!”).

Buy the (soon to be?)optional gas turbine generator that runs on paint thinner or used oil from everyone else’s IC trucks and tractors at the jobsites (there’s plenty available because they refuse to believe in synthetic oil).

No, the Cybertruck doesn’t have a cowboy problem. Ford buyers have a lack of ingenuity problem and wouldn’t know what torque was if it pulled their truck backwards (15lbs of chrome Harley stickers and all).

PS. Google “Ford ignition switch fires”. Do you really want an electric Ford? If so, you might want to invest in some Nomex and park it outside. Quality is Job 1: electrical engineering is about #36; after accounting, customer delusion, and squishyness fill the rest of the positions. They do have darn nice service departments, though. I bought a Dodge there once at a place called “All American Ford and Dodge.”

Dealers have no shame. That’s why we love them so much and why Tesla will win in the end. Order online and it will drive itself to your garage. No leisure suit required.
