Mainstream Magazine article on Ecomodders!

Hey guys,

I just got this link today.

It's to an article on me and some other Ecomodders, sort of specifically about the Green Drive Expo event.

Hot-Rod? Try Eco-Mod | OnEarth Magazine

They even made an illustration to go with the article, although I swear that as bad as my fashion sense is, I have never worn gray pants with a faded red shirt with a lightning bolt....




Car looks nice though.

This is the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

I'd rather the earlier illustration than the description in the article.

The car sound great. Thanks for the link.

Ouch, man, ouch. Those are for medical purposes only. I have flat feet!

Also, they are pretty good insulators.
