Bob Lutz has been an important guy in the auto industry since before most of us were born. Elon Musk is the reason your eBay transactions go so smoothly (he was the co-creator of PayPal). Together, they don't seem to make much of a team. Well, they wouldn't make much of a match if Musk weren't the CEO of Tesla Motors. Elon makes electric cars. Bob wants to make electric cars. Both are (*ahem*) outspoken and give good soundbites. Upon further review, it makes perfect sense that the two men were hanging out at the Detroit Auto Show. But what were they talking about?

We have some ideas, but they probably aren't as creative as yours. We'll get you started with some appetizers, but we're really just looking for you to provide the main course:
Lutz to Musk: "You think you're nervous right now, but you really just have range anxiety"
Musk to Lutz: "We have more batteries in one car than you have in 500 Volts"
Lutz to Musk: "$500 million? $50 billion!"
Help us out with some better captions by leaving some tender verbal vittles in Comments.

      Musk: So Bob, do you Twitter or do you even know what that is?

      Lutz: Of course, I use the Internets.

      Musk: Seriously? You do know that people who use that are a step away from taking pictures of their poop.

      Lutz: I thought that's what FaceBook is for.

      Musk: (Looking stunned --SEE picture above)

      Lutz: What? Isn't that the hip thing to do, I thought all the cool kids were doing it?

      Musk: (Still speechless)

      Lutz: I gotta go check my email, did I already add you to my "friends" list?

      Musk: (Now laughing uncontrollably)

      Lutz: Man, I thought nobody heard me fart, let's walk over there so that nobody thinks it's me, stop laughing people are staring.

      Musk: (Now ROFL)

      Lutz: Musk, it wasn't THAT loud. As if you never fart in public. I'll see you later at dinner.
