HI, I am Ray Hess and I live outside of Philly. I've followed Tesla for many years but the cars were always way beyond anything I could afford. Even the 3 is over my budget but I just kept hearing more and more and finally said "I don't care, I'm reserving one and will figure out how to pay for it by the time my number comes up". I am on the wrong end of the backlog so I have a year (estimated) to figure it out. I found this forum a couple of weeks ago and love it. I'm digesting everything I can and dreaming of my car. Thanks for letting me join.
