It's really real!
Posted by: Buzz
Date: February 08, 2022 02:59PM
Saw a blueish/greenish-gray* Rivian truck in the wild yesterday. It was my first.
Of all things, it was in the Ikea parking lot in Carson, CA, parked next to the dumpster enclosure.....,
even though there was ample parking throughout mega-box complex.
It was almost like it was trying to hide for some reason...... hmmmm.



*I had my sunglasses on, so exact color identification was difficult. It was too dark and grayish hued to be Rivian Blue,
so unless it was a prototype color, I'm thinking Launch Green, Forest Green, or possibly El Cap Granite, with an even
slighter chance of Limestone. I know, useless without pics, and I so wanted to snag one; but spousal unit had control
of my phone, and I was about to incur her wrath, so my better judgment made me keep driving.

I have high hopes for the Rivian.

Good competition is a good thing.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Ive seen a few, one even going over the grapevine in So Calf. spotted this one a month ago in Roseville CA, outside a HD -- no paper plates, so had it least 2 months to get real plates.

California

I've heard of that place, seen it represented in movies many times! That truck is like a ding-dong-dang SPACESHIP.

I just watched all of the episodes of “Long Way Up” on Apple TV, and the two Rivians were the best part of the series. (Sadly they were the only good part, I am officially so over Ewan and Charlie.) By contrast, Noraly and her “Itchy Boots” videos on YouTube are absolutely fantastic.

Really like this one. This is just the opening act for the R1S (SUV)

First time I saw one was a year or more ago, on the road leading to my house. It was going very slow and I was stuck behind it for 2-3 miles, and at the time was wondering what kind of vehicle it was.

I now frequently drive past their Palo Alto offices, and there's a large parking lot with lots of them parked there.

Hugh, Huge HUGE fan of Noraly, of Itchy Boots.

I'm up to date, from Episode 1.

She's a different deal than the Long Way Up boys, apples and oranges.

Ewan and Charley don't really impress me, still, I enjoyed seeing the trip on Live Wires with the Rivian 'support' vehicles.
