My Take on the Cybertruck Clause
One part of my perspective firmly believes that individuals should have the freedom to do as they please with their purchased items, including the option to resell or "flip" them.
On the flip side, another part of me reflects on the history of coveted cars, observing a common outcome: they either become pristine garage fixtures or end up on platforms like Bring A Trailer, fetching a premium price. This trend has been evident with renowned brands like Porsche, Chevrolet, and Ford.
If the intention behind acquiring these vehicles is to encourage their use on the road rather than hoarding or reselling them for profit, I wholeheartedly support that idea. As a passionate car enthusiast, witnessing iconic cars and trucks cruising the streets brings me immense joy, and I believe the Cybertruck has the potential to be one of those unforgettable vehicles. If you don't share this perspective, feel free to reach out via email, and I'd be more than willing to take your spot in line.
