My Take on The Cybertruck

Finally!  I got to see a Cybertruck in person.  The best way I described it to my wife is “Obnoxiously Beautiful”.  I’m a fan.

It has an incredible presence and it looks way better in person than it does in pictures.  We didn’t get to see the interior, but who cares?  It’s about what’s on the outside for this beast.  A beast it is as it’s massive.  

There have been some complaints about fit and finish, but I couldn’t spot any issues and it looked quite tight to me.  The body and panels looked good.

We got to see the gigantic windshield wiper, the rear light bar, the headlight bar, the somewhat hidden fogs, and the Goodyear tires coming in at 285/65R20.  We weren’t the only ones excited about the Cybertruck as there was a small crowd there to see it as well. 

On the way out, my wife with her eagle eye spotted another one on the road.  We flipped a U-turn and of course, it pulled into the Tesla center.  It had some mud caked on it and it looked proper.  

I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing quite a few of them on the road here soon.
