Well, just because I'm moving it doesn't mean we can't talk about the car!

I'd drive it to the east coast, but it would take me about 3 weeks to get there, going about 25 km, charging for 6 hours, another 25 km, charging for 6 hours...

I haven't sen anything new about the Poulsen Hybrid since the first flurry of info came out. You might want to head over to this thread and poke people there who were talking about it (near the bottom half):


Here's a ForkenSwift milestone I passed this weekend:

My parents' nieghbour was always ribbing me about the car - dubious about its real utility. "I'll believe it when I see you drive your mom up to church in it," he said.

Want to guess what I did yesterday?

And, drat, he wasn't there to see it.

Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
