@pip-bip I've seen that vehicles several times over the past a couple of weeks – most recently on last Saturday when I drove out from the parking spot in the mall near the campus. My cousin also applied to be a sales guy for this Wuling last month or so.
@SilentbutnotreallyDeadly@CB Per some of the comments on Twitter, there's a thin metal wall separating an evacuation passageway from the road. Not sure I buy that, when the car hits the wall sections look more like foamcore than metal.
Ye', I know.
I just find it funny both were saying the other is doing it and they weren't, yet both were.
Just like BAE Systems (as it is now) and Boeing or Lockheed in Saudi giving back handers.
Both saying they were innocent and light but saying the other wasn't both found to be doing it.
Ex-staff and government ministers, etc... all saying, 'it's part of doing business in the middle east'. Lol.
It's all slight of hand, 'don't look at me, look where I'm pointing!'.
@AuthiCooper1300 I think it was. The tub was so small as to not be much use. I daresay a few would have sold to British farmers and gamekeepers who would have used them for work; they got by with 90 single cab pickups for years.
I may be wrong, but I'm fairly certain that the 110 double cab didn't come along until the TDCi era, so 2007 at the earliest. That would make it ineligible for import under the 25 year rule, which makes me think that this one is likely a conversion.
@Someoneatacura I guess I don't see how this gives him a market advantage. It's not one of his companies that is buying it, and even if it was, twitter and his other companies are completely disparate, and there are minimal barriers to entry for another platform to emerge (other than "everyones on twitter").
I can understand thinking maybe Musk is a bit unstable, but I'm not sure there is legal precedent for keeping someone from buying a company just because he's done other things that people don't like/are illegal. What if he wanted to buy a 7-11? I understand twitter is different than a 7-11, but it's not currently regulated like a utility, so in the SEC's eyes, I don't think it's any different than a 7-11 other than instead of selling Slurpies, they sell advertising.
@pip-bip I'm trying to figure out HOW they did that... The video's sped up, so we're not getting a good sense of how slow the driver is actually going. Maybe he's feeling for the moment that the rear wheel starts to dip in order to know when to stop and pull forward again.
