Tesla is saying that their truck looks like a reject from an 80s scifi movie because the material they used for it would break the press if they put compound curves in it.

They also mentioned that the 30x cold rolled steel they used allows the exterior to be a stressed member. That kind of concerns me from a safety standpoint

Most transit buses are built with a stainless, stressed skin construction. I don't think it's a major feat of engineering.

Finally dropped the 300ZX off at the alignment shop to finish up after changing out all the bushings, struts, and suspension arms, and now we're supposed to get 5" of snow this afternoon.

I may have made a tactical error.
