Car Covers

Noticed this photo over at TMC. Wonder if we can get hold of these Tesla Car Covers - anyone asked?

These are not "car covers"...they are the while "plastic" that they are shipped in to protect the finish.

The Tesla online store has car covers for dust only and 1 for outside use.
here.

Oops - they looked like cloth rather than plastic.

@Teoatawki - thanks. And thanks for having the "most difficult to type" handle. :-)

@nickjhowe - a lot better than TheEndOfAllThingsAsWeKnowIt. I totally understand why some shorten to just Teo.

Teo;
So it's an acronym! I was afraid it was some exotic ethnic concoction.

Brian H | November 2, 2012

But it should be "TheEndOfAllThingsAsWeKnowThem". Which is even harder to pronounce.
>:p

I thought it was Maori or something for "The man who drives the magic horseless cart"

Teoatawki | November 2, 2012

No, but it would be great if it was!

And maybe it actually is. Are you sure otherwise? ;-)

nickjhowe, maybe you should at some point start using a platform that supports copy-paste. Have you heard of copy-paste? Works great for me! I overheard that even Apple implemented it just recently... ;-) SCNR

The white covers look like the ones Audi uses to protect its' cars during transport. They are flimsy.

@Volker - i tried it but the keyboard got far too sticky. :-(

Actually, Brian, I believe "It" is possibly also correct here because it is referring to the end, not things.

Brian H | November 4, 2012

As we know the end? Sense makes it not. :D

Teoatawki | November 4, 2012

I can't take blame or credit. It is an acronym from a science fiction story I read long ago.

Brian H | November 4, 2012

Do you remember which one?

jerry3 | November 4, 2012

It's in the song "It's The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" by the band R.E.M.

I don't know whether this came out before of after the book (as I don't know what the book is).

Teoatawki | November 4, 2012

Much earlier than the song, I think. I can't recall what the book was.

For the record, I did not intend to hijack this thread.

Brian H | November 4, 2012

The REM song doesn't fit, anyway; that would be TEOTWAWKI.
