This might just be my best Friday the 13th EVER …. Without trying to jinx it, I was notified today that the financing for my brand new 2022 Tesla Model Y has been approved – and that it should be delivered here to Hawaii before Independence Day (July 4th). I’m SO STOKED!
I’ve been dreaming and scheming a new Tesla since June 4, 2014, the day I first drove a Model S for a day to write a Tesla review called “I Want The Magic Car Too!” – which was the exact same day that I registered the domain ImGettingATesla.com.
Last October, in a leap of faith, a bit of craziness and while looking forward to a great ski season – I ordered a brand new Model Y Tesla. I chose all the options I wanted – full self driving capability, tow package, 7 seats, Dark Silver exterior, Black interior, long range all wheel drive. It was supposed to be ready in February, but I knew it wouldn’t be, so I bought a Subaru Forrester for the ski season.
After a great ski season in Salt Lake City, I sold the Subaru and joined my family in Honolulu, Hawaii. Even though there is no need for all wheel drive or space for fast driving here in paradise, I decided to change delivery of my Tesla from California to here in Hawaii. I probably could have made out better by having it delivered to California and then shipped to Hawaii, I wanted to keep it simple.
So – my Tesla Model Y should be here in the next 4 – 6 weeks … Very excited … now I just have to think of a (Hawaiian) name for her …. Please let me know if you have any suggestions ….
