Jason Shafer shot and shared this with a few of us in an email last night, and we had some choice comments. Now it’s your turn. Just keep it civil, please.
Ironic that this vehicle may have been funded directly or indirectly with Big Oil dough but doesn’t even have an internal combustion engine. Yes, I know that it has plastic surfaces/components and needs lubricants. But still…
Elon would approve.
It looks funny, but it has great steering.
And the horn works. But does it have the vegan upholstery option?
Needs a cattle prod and send it off to the meat processing plant…!!!
“Get along little EV”
Teslas are faster than you think, this one really moooooves.
One thing we know is it wasn’t the implement of Bessie’s demise.
Daddy’s Money got steered in the wrong direction.
Retro fashion is a new trend
Boss Hogg is not amused.
Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow is pissed at all of you and your comments. Laughed at all of them by the way.
Holy cow, that’s udderly ridiculous.
The resemblance is uncanny!
Tesla steakholders might be impressed.
Me? I have no beef with it.
Here’s the supersized Shaq (in the back) version in Austin Texas. Because Texas.
Clearly owned by a greenhorn.
Maybe this is a subtle reference to their financial status; as in “Horns of Plenty”. 🙂
Great comments! “Steering”?? 🙂
OK, so it’s possible that there are more than one of these, but it’s likely that this is the same car as:
Now on its second owner.
If it is the same, then at least the poor car didn’t meet the same fate as some of the other Teslas owned by this tool (sorry…I clicked through enough of his videos to know that I didn’t want to click through any more and send any more revenue his way). He seems to be fond of blowing them up and otherwise making a spectacle of destroying them.
If it’s the same car, it’s had a horn transplant – different shape and size of horns.
You’re the expert on photos, so you’re no doubt right.
Which just makes me all the more sad that someone saw this video and was inspired by it perhaps. Ugh.
Ah geez. I only got a handful of seconds in before I was triggered and wanted to whomp that mophead into next week… The horns on a Tesla are an egregious enough sin, but they ain’t nuthin up against that clown’s asshattery!
…Git yer Tesla offa my lawn!
It’s one way to get attention. Teslas are pretty ubiquitous around here. I’ve recently started to notice Teslas that are sporting aftermarket wheels, contrasting paint or wrap jobs, and even stripes. I think that there is even a problem with brand new models, they haven’t changed very much, so how can people know that you’re driving a new car? They used to be the hot set up, but cars are a fashion industry, and it’s time for a change.
I’ve noticed that too — here’s a striped Tesla seen recently on I-95. I thought this was odd… until I saw the steer-horn picture.
I saw my first Tesla with a CARMAX emblem on it today.
It was a red Model 3, so it would seem that they are hitting the secondary market now.
In another 5 or 6 years, you’ll see them at the buy here pay here lots. It’s inEVitable.
This is weird / cool…..
Me so horny.
Back in the 1980s there was a very nice cocktail club in Atlanta GA, called Daddy’s Money. I always liked the name.
Early 1967, Dad give me Moms 1963 T-Bird on my 16th birthday. Remember people saying I was driving Dad’s T-Bird. A few years later, Dad borrowed my ’63’, wreaked it, Dad gave me his 1966 T-Bird so I could return to Univ., Miami, First trip back home from Miami, Dad borrowed the ’66’ Bird and wreaked it. With only a few days before I had return to Miami, Dad sent to his contact at a Chevy dealer, blank check in hand. My marching orders was do not go crazy, meaning do not buy a Camaro. So I bought a 396 Nova, fully optioned. Dad thought I had been practical selecting a Nova until he got the insurance bill. By that time I was back in Miami, too late.
Many decades later Dad and I joked how I revenge spent Daddy’s Money. after I lost my T-Birds.
Side note: Currently have a late model Camaro & 1966 T-Bird conv.
Did you wreck that Nova ? .
Perhaps this Tesla is owned by a relative of Leo Carillo, a 1940s actor best known for his role as Pancho in the TV show The Cisco Kid. Leo was well known for driving his 1948 Chrysler Town & Country convertible with a steer head mounted to it’s grill. The Chrysler was on display in Harrah’s car museum for many years.
Here’s a photo of Leo riding atop the steer head on his Chrysler;
