TRUCKLA: The world’s first Tesla pickup truck

I got tired of waiting for Tesla to release their pickup truck, so I made my own. And I named it Truckla. WATCH HOW WE BUILT IT:

Awarded Best Fake Truck of 2019
“In a class of its own. Not a great class, but definitely its own” – Road & Smack
“It looks great sweetie” – My parents
