This is a quick song about my EV struggles. Enjoy. Listen first, read lyrics later.

I read about Fisker, just the other day-
It goes 50 miles on electric they say
I asked to see the car, they said wait till May-
well that’s not very long so hip hip hurray,
I gave’em my order, and five grand too,
They said, “you’re gonna have your car – soon”,
You’re really gonna have it soon

And it’s been several months and it’s now past June-
They don’t have a clue and-it’s-not very soon-
When’s it gonna be now?
They don’t know when – but you’ll get-your-new-car then-
We’ll get you your Fisker then

Fisker turned four just the other day-
“Can I get my car now I am willing to pay?”
They said sorry, Bo but not today
We got some more do, I said “that’s OK”
And I -walked away but my smile never dimmed
I said, -“gonna’ have my Fisker soon,- yeah”-
I’m gonna drive electric soon

And it’s been two years and it’s way past June-
They still don’t have a clue and-it’s-not-very soon-
When’s it gonna be now?
They don’t know when,- but you’ll get-your-new-car then-
You know you’ll have your Fisker then

The years have passed,- time has slipped away-
Fisker called me up just the other day–
They said, “Thanks for the wait, you’ve been so kind,
Your car is in, let’s get these papers signed”–
I said I got bills to pay- and I got-things-to-do,
But it’s sure nice hearing from you, yea-
It’s sure nice hearing from you

And as I hung up the phone- I grabbed my key
‘Cause I bought a Nissan Z
I bought a Nissan Z

‘Cause it’s been too long and it’s way past June-
I’m cruzin’ in my Z while i’m singing’ this tune-
I ran out of patience
And I don’t know when, but I bought-my-Nissan then, yea-
I bought me a Nissan then

(Note: this is based on my true experience, but I have not given up on Fisker yet! I have not bought a Nissan Z — that was the only car that rhymed. The Fisker Karma is amazing and I will press on — for the time being.)

Don’t just listen to the EVcast — experience and be a part of it! Join us at 1:00pm Eastern, M-F, in our live video broadcast and chat along with us!

Sniff. Brought a tear to my eye. I was just about to ask “Did you really buy a Z” but then I scrolled down.

Phew. Close call.

That was funny, my brother works for them. The main problem was that they had to have tooling made for all the parts on thier cars since they were not using any parts that have already been developed for any other cars. So it was a complet ground up tooling. So having to wait on vendors to creat the machine tooling to make thier parts and then Detroit now working out as a manufacturing location, then they had to wait on Obama to realeas funding to them, thier car alsomost did not get made.

Love it Bo, when can we expect the music video? What will hit the streets first, Fisker Karma or Tesla model S?

Technically, Fisker already hit the street. So Fisker ๐Ÿ™‚

Outstanding job, guys! Love the lyrics! Bo, you can actually carry a tune! Personally, I think you should hold out for a Model S, though you might claim that the Karma is a sexier car.

Okay- it’s right before Christmas, and it looks llke Fiskar is starting to send cars to dealers- did you get your Karma yet, Bo? Did it come with a big, red bow for bo? Did it come in the favorite color of your wife’s best beau? People want to know!

And Merry Christamas, by the way, to each of y’all!

Our buddy Dr. Briggs sent me a red Fisker Matchbox! But besides that, they said Mid Feb for my car.

Hope you make a new show again soon. A lot of news in the EV world, a quarterly podcast would be great. There was a great documentary on Elon Musk. I think the show needs a recharge, maybe not a daily, but a quarterly would be great. This is a critical time in the EV world.

What I want for Christmas is:

1. 10 KW of Solar Panels on your house

2. 2 Electric Cars.

3. An efficient heat pump, LED lightbulbs

4. and a new front tooth.
