In the days leading up to April 20, Tesla Owners Club of Austin, which represents Tesla owners in Austin, Texas, and surrounding areas, made it apparent that it would be dedicating the day to the man behind the electric car company.

On Monday, the club tweeted an "Elon Musk Day" reminder, telling its followers that they should thank Musk for something they like about one of his companies. 

"Thank you Elon for making electric cars fast and sexy…" the club tweeted. 

"We often wait too long to celebrate our heroes and monumental people in society," Tesla investor Anuarbek Imanbaev said, according to the Hill. "On #ElonMuskDay, the request is that we share ways that the products of Musk’s companies have changed our lives for the better or ways in which Elon himself has inspired us."
