Tesla #33 in England ready to ship

Here is a great story if you are interested in the Tesla. (and who isn’t?)
A new Tesla owner took a vacation to England during October 2008 and timed it to coincide with the manufacture of his vehicle. The first step in manufacturing a Tesla occurs near Norwich, England at the Lotus factory. The “glider” is shipped to California, where the final assembly of the battery and electric components happens.

Here is the story from the perspective of a new owner.

Stephen, who has written several other blogs about Tesla, describes the tour and his first impressions with the car.
