Let's be honest - who disliked and/or was repulsed by the Cybertruck when they first saw it?

It definitely wasn't love at first sight. The best word for what I felt at first was conflicted. Both of our personal (mine and my wife) trucks are pretty new so my interest in the CT was pure curiosity. I can say that the aesthetics had nothing to do with my initial ambivalence. It was more trying to figure out if the value proposition was good or not.

Like many, my first reaction to the flat sided thing (what is that? Cardboard? Perhaps that will drop away to reveal the truck? Then it stopped and people started climbing out of it. Whoa! OK Elon, hahaha, very funny, now show us the real truck. But... the things I had no clue about - $40k, $50k, $70k What?
- 250, 300, 500 plus miles of range What?and although this was in NO WAY a requirement, the 0-60 times - staggering!
6 seater, tailgate ramp What? Hey, I don't even need to anguish about color, I consider that a bonus plus you get scratch and dent resistive. Even the glass is resistive to breaking. No need to worry about those stones/whatever getting kicked up on the highway and chipping/cracking the windshield.

That is NO JOKE!
LOVE IT! Reserved as soon as I got home
TriMotor (NOT the plane) with FSD. Perhaps the last vehicle I ever purchase.

My initial thought when it rolled out was.... And I have witnesses who heard me say this out loud... "Aww, man, they made something completely useless for my needs."
The jury is still out on that.

I think i've gotten over the less-than-8-foot bed.... but I need a ladder rack and cavernous amounts of space for tools and small parts.
Swear to dog I'm ripping out the back seats and welding in custom slide-out racks. Hopefully I can set the suspension nice and soft so I don't hear all the parts bouncing every time I hit a bump. The back doors better open nice and wide, hopefully past 90 degrees, but I doubt they will.
Maybe I'd be better off with a van.

When I was watching the reveal, the first thing I said was, "What the fuck is that? He's joking right?" About a week or so later I switched form hating to appreciating, then I eventually decided it's a badass looking truck.

At first I was taken back. But then I remembered what Han Solo said to Luke "It may not look like much kid but she has it where it counts" and then ordered my tri motor. Since then I have grown to like new wave design.
