I have this thing were my hobbies have to somehow help to fund themselves.
I have been trying to think of ways that a Tesla could do that... apart from using it as a CAB or flat out selling rides for amusement! :)
I do 3D Computer Design and Milling at a place that produces and casts custom jewelry. I am not quite paid enough to flat out purchase a Model S. So I was thinking of designing and casting a few items in Gold or Silver to sell off to put some dent in the finance payments on my own Model S. This would likely be done through IndieGoGo.com.
Some of my design ideas will require the Tesla Logos, so I am hopeful that I can get official permission to use the Tesla Logos or that maybe they just will not care, after all, any funds I gain will be going toward the purchase of a Model S.
Any one have a more direct contact I can contact about getting official permission to use the logos?
I have only ever had 1 car since I was 16, a 1993 Ford F150 Lightning, I still have it, still drive it, as no other car has come along that I wanted... until the Model S. Even when I bought out my dad's lease on the Lightning, I said I really like this truck, but I would rather have an electric car.
My truck is rusting out now, and it is costing me more than $20 in gas to get to work and back each day, with its whopping 4mpg that I am getting right now! (It needs work)
This will not be the only way I will fund the Model S, as I already have a few grand in the bank, and a side job that will help out (even more then the CAD job). I rent out my digital slot car track to parties and corporate events. (see: SlotCarRental.com)
I intend to also build a light weight trailer that I can pull with a Model S, with a fully built up scenic slot car track inside to take to events, and maybe get some Model S bodies for the slot cars.
Some of my basic design ideas are in the image below, however I have other ideas, like maybe a set of Tesla Themed Monopoly Tokens or something. I am open to any ideas...
