South Texas has all the jokes for Brownsville’s future with Elon Musk
It didn’t take long for South Texas Twitter to have some fun with the news that Elon Musk is investing millions into the area.
On Tuesday, the Tesla CEO announced his $20 million donation to schools in Cameron County, the southernmost county in Texas, as well as a $10 million donation to the City of Brownsville for “downtown revitalization.”
Twitter users quickly theorized how exactly Musk’s funds would change Brownsville’s cityscape.

Other Twitter users had suggestions for how the money can be used, like building a Pluckers or bringing back Mr. Gatti’s. Some even joked that Texas’ power grid wouldn’t be able to handle the futuristic vibes that Musk and his SpaceX will bring.
Musk even chimed in on one suggestion.
Could we have a boring loop from Brownsville International Airport to South Padre Island and eventually Starbase?

Only time will tell how Musk and his money will reshape the heart of South Texas.
