    Not only all that, but they are talking like Tesla and making the battery packs a integral part of the structure of the car. Tesla figures you need a new car every 5 to 7 years. Yeah wife and I just traded our last 2 vehicles in that were 25+ years old snd these 2 new ones will last me the rest of my life. #### the tree hugging libtards

    I think the electric F150 will outsell the Tesla truck. Much more stylish and likely to catch the eye of truck owners.

    The Builder is doing something Shady.

    If anybody is really that curious to find out call them up and tell them you want to buy one ask them to send you the VIN.

    I would be pretty certain that's not going to be the correct Vin for a glider...

    They're not a factory glider, they're retitled somehow. I can't remember how exactly but one of the guys I know called them on one and somehow someway they're getting around it, so far anyway. I don't know how well it stands up in a legal situation. This isn't the only place I've seen selling new Pete gliders.

    Nebraska has an “Assembled” title that you can get if you change a major component, such as the engine. $40k over the price of a new truck and you have what amounts to a salvage title. So while the title may be legal they have some big balls advertising those trucks all over given some of the fines the EPA has handed out to other companies that skirt the regulations.
