I needed sheets of drywall and foam insulation. $30 got me a Menards van for two hours. Easier than looking for someone who drives a truck every day to help me out once every few years.

Me neither. My convertible has a tow hook though, so I can transport mulch and the like whenever I want without getting the car dirty. Borrowing/renting a trailer is easy and super cheap. I also know where I can rent a more practical van for peanuts.

The new Citroën Ami’s left and right doors are the same part for cost-cutting reasons.

Have you had the “fun” of replacing the clutch yet? How about the oil cooler blowing it’s seals? Motor mounts? Head gasket? The $500 oil pressure relief valve? The almost unobtanium couple of coolant hoses? The rest of the hoses are merely expensive for good ones. And on, and on, and on. The engine bay is the Read more

Yeah that’s the main takeway. Of course you can charge a battery with a generator, be it powered by a diesel engine, a cyclist or a hamster in a wheel. But 2 km with the energy sufficient to move 9 people on 5km that’s 45kms (I bet even more) It just shows how ineficient the car is as a means of transportation.

I wonder where the Biros are made? If they’re just importing these from China then they’re marking them up very heavily since the Chinese price seems to be around $4000 US and that’s at retail.

Yeah at 15k just buy a yaris - completely functional as a car you can actually take on the freeway, and still pretty easy to park (although you need actual car parking, which I assume is the issue).

That is used 7 series money!!! I could buy 2 good cars with that money, or a car and bike, and have money left for a golfkart :))

The orange car looks like a serious urban design. With some development , and modular components (small truck bed etc,) it could be very interesting.  There were also some cool scooters (24:11)  I want.....
