Trotz is car shopping (mod: in San Jose)
 
Just saw Barry Trotz and some other member of the Preds at the Tesla shop on santana row. I snapped a couple pics and will upload them later when i get home. My phone wont let me do it.

Looks like DW found his McLellan replacement. :sarcasm:

:laugh: That's good.

More like window shopping probably, unless the Preds team plane is a C-130

He's been watching the Sharks a lot and felt like buying a Lexus, for some reason.

Only Preds thread I ever want to see started is.. Saw Suter house shopping :-)

Thorntonfan97 03-14-2012 11:37 PM

I've always thought Trotz looked like an angry thumb

KpopandHockey 03-14-2012 11:43 PM

I guess I know what team I want to get killed in the first round. We then get Suter AND Trotz. :sarcasm:

My boss bought one heh. Came back and called me into his office to show me... I'm like... uhm... great dude! :P

Tesla's control like **** though for the price tag they carry. Also I dunno why but when I drove one it felt really weak. Like behind the wheel of a Gallardo or Veyron when you step on the gas you feel that kick in the dick but the Tesla feels like total weaksauce. Well compared to one of the two previously mentioned. It still feels more powerful than like a civic. :laugh: (well to be fair I guess everything feels weak compared to a Veyron hahaha). But Tesla's are most def not worth the cost IMO.

Obviously it's not a Veyron. A Tesla costs ~100k and a Veyron costs 17 times more. But I believe the Tesla can offer very competitive torque values. No idea of the reality, but just based on the tech.

He reminds me of a Soviet bureaucrat. I think it's his stature, facial hair, and last name. :laugh:

Sure, but even compared to like a uh ZR1 the Tesla feels pretty weak.

Mafoo, you either watch as much Top Gear as me, or lead a very different lifestyle.

Guaranteed Sheppard just owned him on Xbox Live, and that's the extent of his relationship with Sharks players.

They're still awesome, technologically speaking. Full electric? And when you step on the gas you get instant power, you don't have to wait for a fuel injector. Sounds pretty, umm, neat.

Speaking of Soviets, he reminds me of Bob Hoskins from his character in Enemy at the Gates, which ironically he plays a Soviet :laugh:

Heres the pics I took. Trotz did buy something somewhere as he's got that little bag on him. Got home much later than I thought and was dead tired. After they left here they went in to Straits. I didn't see any Sharks players when me and my group popped in there minutes before but I have before in the past.

Question is, though, American Top Gear or British Top Gear??
