They also just posted a video of their first customer delivery, Nathan Fillion, signature series #00001. That officially makes production infinitely higher than the Elio and 2% of Tucker '48.

At 0:33s? It sounds like arci'-moto to me. Definitely not archee-moto.

I have mentioned before that I promised myself in the 1970s I would drive VW Beetles until I could trade up directly to a flying saucer. I slid a bit with the Dasher diesel, but holding a reservation number, I'm on track at last.

That would be a quite radical switch.

pronunciation is only slightly more important than spelling but both are a waste of education time. just think of how much better the world would be if we taught 3rd graders the art of pluse and glide rather than the difference between weather, wether, and whether.

As children riding a one speed bike we would use pulse and glide pedaling without being taught. Before school we would have to decide whether the weather would be wetter later.
