Even weirder is that it looks stock. I would have expected something like that on the back of something like this:

Real trucks don't need to be plugged in when it gets cold.

I plug my 95 Cummins in when it is below 20 degrees but even then it will start in several revs. If I plug it in, it starts instantaneous. I can manage that for the 20 mpg I get no matter what the weather or length of drive. Plus in 243000 miles it has needed very little attention. And I get real bored driving a gasser without all that good sound and vibration from the 12v diesel.

In 91, when I lived in Monet Vista, I had a F-250 diesel. Plugged that bugger in in every night during the cold Valley winter. On night about 2 am. Bam my wife's water breaks. I am out the door. Some ^%#&^#%@#& unplugged my truck and used my cord to plug in their car. Is was -30. No start in that pickup. So a 911 for an ambulance to the hospital in Alamosa. A friend took me over in his 67 F-100. I still refuse to own a diesel. I do have one Kubota tractor. Everything else is gas.

Just north of Rabbit Valley is a river basin that got nailed by the floods.

We were looking at it just now with google satelite and found this poor house that was cut off complete.

Then we looked in his yard

20F is tshirt weather.

Gassers fired up, unwillingly, but they did it. The diesels... .

That is so cool. Didn't know they had tested the reuseable landing part. But they did get up to the ISS today for an easter egg delivery. So major congrats to SpaceX and anybody else who can do similar stuff to re-energize the US space activity.
