I thought I posted this yesterday, but may not have hit the right button, or a nefarious German Auto Dealer deleted my post. Here goes #2: Prepare a sign that is big enough to be seen at some distance, but small enough to place on the roof of the Tesla. The sign should read: WHY WOULD YOU BUY ONE OF THEIR CARS WHEN YOU CAN DRIVE THIS FOR LESS????
Step 2: Take your car to your local Mercedes dealership and park in a conspicuous place on the street. Put sign on car. People WILL come to talk with you. Tell them about your car, how much you love it, what it costs to own, what you spend on gas, give them a Slacker Song Selection, and a test drive. Sooner or later the manager of the MBZ dealership will come and ask you to move the car. Tell him you'd be happy to, for $100, and if he gives you $500, you won't be back tomorrow or the rest of the month. After you collect your money, go to the BMW dealership and park, etc. With your next payment in hand, go to the Audi dealership. You might try Jaguar as well.
Step 3: Show up early on the first of the next month.
Step 4: Pick up monthly checks
Step 5: Simply give them your PO Box (you don't want these people knowing where you live) and tell them to send the payment on the first of the month and if it's not there by the third the Tesla stays on the street for a full day for each day late.
Step 6: Buy a retirement home in Hawaii and a skiing chalet in Vail.
Depending upon the number of high end dealerships, you might be able to pull in enough to make car payments. I'd love to tell you I've tried this and am paying for my car with the proceeds, but all the dealerships in my area are in Auto-Malls or on streets where there is no street parking. My guess is that I couldn't pull this stunt in their parking lot.
