Several years ago, there was a car show at Roberts Stadium in Evansville during which many "concept cars" were on display up in the concourse area.

Automakers use concept cars to gauge the public's interest or reaction to new designs and features and usually do not go into mass production. They're like gigantic Hot Wheels. I, for one, wanted to drive every single one of them out of Roberts Stadium.

I thought Priuses and Teslas looked like concept cars early on, but now that we're so used to seeing them, they've lost that "edge," so to speak.

Very recently, another vehicle that looks like a concept car showed up in Owensboro, and maybe it's the first time such a machine has made an appearance here. I've only seen them in magazines, and they are admittedly unusual. Have YOU spotted the CyberTruck yet?

The Cyber Truck is a Tesla but looks less like a typical road vehicle and more like what you'd drive across the surface of the moon to plant a flag or hit a golf ball.

According to, Cyber Trucks have a 340-mile range and possess a towing capacity of up to 11,000 pounds. They can go from zero to 60 in 2.6 seconds. And with a stainless steel body that's reportedly bulletproof, the Cyber Truck will run you anywhere from $81K to $101K. A less expensive rear-wheel drive version is on its way for 2025, but that will still set you back north of $62K.

So what do you think? On the 2024 Christmas wish list or not?

LOOK: Cool Car Features We Kind of Miss

Kids these days don't know what they're missing out on! But hey, let's be real, some of those old car features were pretty awesome. Yeah, they might've been a bit risky and even tried to kill us, but they made our rides feel way cooler.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
