Why the seat belt?
Why the seat belt?
I miss my 1972 Mercedes 220:
Yes, yes, yes! Makes me want to grow a mullet and do some doughnuts! Nice price!
Compared to PA gas prices, NJ was always cheap to me. I grew up close to the Delaware and used to regularly take advantage of the lower gas taxes in NJ and fill up there.
April 1st is right around the corner . . .
Technically, the Nero also isn’ t their first EV. They’ve been selling an EV version of the Soul in Europe for years. The EV6 looks great though and I will definitely consider buying one when my wife’s Seat Leon is ready to be replaced.
3500 HP? That’s one bitchin’ Camaro
Hmm, that Lexus would be a great option for a long distance trip across an unforgiving continent . . . . just saying . . . .
Well done, David. Out of curiosity, did you treat the surface rust inside the frame rail before you welded everything up? I’m just wondering if it will rust from the inside out after a few salty winters.
It does have the 3rd row; you can see the seat belts in the photo. Regardless, definitely a NP.
My Bombtrack Arise Geared has a super loud Microshift Advent hub. It’s useful for when cycling near pedestrians because they hear me when I coast and get out of the way without me having to use my bell.
From a price perspective, $9,000 is actually not that bad, if you want to actually buy a Fuego. A quick search of mobile.de yielded only 3 for sale in Europe, ranging from 7k € to 9.9k €. But seriously, who the hell would pay that much for a Fuego? No dice.
Even though $4,800 could buy you a hell of a lot more, seriously, this must be the nicest Reliant left on the planet, so it’s a nice price for something that belongs in a museum.
If it’s a project car, absolutely. I bought a ‘92 Jeep Cherokee with 227k miles on it as a project car for $1,500 (back in 2002). This being the 4.0L six, it ran without any major issues; the main areas of concern were rust-related (sound familiar?). Read more
4th gear: Might be worth showing the DS logo, which is more similar to the Polestar logo:

I said things in Germany were more or less fine, not wonderful. There’s been roughly 140k new cases in the past 2 weeks, so roughly 10k per day, compared to 90k per day in the US. And total deaths is just above 10k in total vs 227k for the US. And the US is roughly 4 times the size of Germany in terms of population. Read more
The want is very strong . . . . what do you think, David? Would I be able to get parts for this in Germany? I wouldn’t plan on driving it down to South Africa or something crazy, just around Germany. Luckily Facebook Marketplace won’t let me view it since it knows that I’m not in the US. But damn, I’m very tempted . .… Read more
Yes, forced distancing while queuing is a definitive benefit. I work for an engineering and consulting firm in the construction industry and we’ve seen no downturn in the German market. If anything, we’ve been more productive because those people who would have normally taken a week off when they get a minor cold… Read more
