|Tesla Model S Burns to the Ground While Using Supercharger in Norway|

Observations from Ed, who is traveling through Norway:
This is hard to believe, but guess what the biggest selling brand car is in Norway now.......yes, Tesla.
Nearly 25% of all new cars now sold in Norway are 100% electric. There are Tesla's everywhere and we are talking the expensive one. If one buys any new car that is not electric the government tacks on 50% of the purchase price as a tax. With 100% electric cars the government forgives the tax plus one is allowed to park an electric car in any garage that typically requires parking payment. In addition, if one buys a Tesla or other electric car here one gets "free" electricity at government-run charging stations. What a deal? As a result even the common middle-class person here can buy what in our country would be $70,000 for a Tesla S.

Hi folks -- I got a very late start last night. I finally made it to the Lofino's cruise-in off of Rt. 35 at 7:30 p.m. Hardly anyone there, as it turned out, due to a much bigger event at Voss Chevrolet in Centerville. Here are a few photos of a 1947 modified Ford Truck.
