That was actually how I found itIt was such a random thing because I'd uh I'd seen it on CraigslistAnd I emailed the seller he didn't respond and get back to me, and then I tweeted about it being likeAll I want is this car. It turns out that the guy who was selling it was following meAnd he saw that tweet and was like hey. I have one for sale, and I was like dudeI've been trying to get ahold of you forever, and there'd been like a bug in CraigslistSo he hadn't gotten my emails I had such a nice, "Oh my godI love the Internet moment" where it kind of just put me together with the guy who is selling the car and here we are.I just want to treat her nicely, the way she deserves.[singing "I Can't Live (If Living Is Without You)" by Mariah Carey] Can't live[singing] If living is without you[singing] I can't liveI'm allowed to do a right on red cause we live in America[Horn self-honks] Oyy uh.

I’M OBSESSED WITH MY ELECTRIC COMUTA CAR. All I want is to work on her. I didn’t know I liked cars. Nobody has told me that I like cars. But I think I might be a budding gear head.
