One-Off Tesla Model S Wagon Could Be Yours For A Ridiculous Amount Of Money

While this custom Tesla Model S wagon may not be the only attempt at converting the Model S into a sexy load lugger, it’s certainly the coolest and most well made that we know of. We have covered it in the past, but now it’s up for sale for what seems like an obscenely large wad of cash given that it’s just a standard Model S with a modified rear end.

The car is currently listed on the JB Classic Cars website for €185,555 ($203,700) sans VAT. That is a lot of money, and even though I’m sure most of the people reading this would fancy owning the car, few would actually take the plunge and pay twice what the Model S P85 on which it’s based was originally worth (even if they had the money to do so).

It was created some two years ago by RemetzCar, a Dutch

political changes in Brazil, and how they can affect income distribution

Personal loans can help in a crunch. But read this before you apply

While the stimulus checks have started dropping into bank accounts and many creditors are offering relief on payments, those options may not be available to everyone or they may not be enough. That’s why some people are turning to unsecured personal loans, often used for debt consolidation or home improvement projects, to cover emergency expenses.

While some lenders are offering low interest relief loans, others are tightening credit requirements for borrowers.

Here’s what you need to know about taking out a personal loan during this crisis and whether or not one makes sense for you.

An unsecured personal loan is money borrowed from a bank, credit union or online lender that can be used for anything. The money is paid back in installments over time, usually with a fixed interest rate.

While many experts would caution against personal loans, which often come with high interest rates and fees, they could
