Unfortunately they had to halt production because it tended to roll over too easily in testing

The Flint car was a crock. Cradle to grave is produced more emissions than a HUMVEE full of flatulent buffalo.

Or he can just get a bike.

I saw something similar home made adaptation.

Edited. Here it is :




Velomobiles are nice, but are usually sold for nearly the price of a popular affordable car (in countries with low prices for cars).
How an the world get better if small and simple vehicles like velomobiles with some electric assistance are so expensive?

I wonder if it's possible to design a human powered vehicle that uses legs and arms at same time. For arms there is this invention :



But also uses batteries if wished, as you can see the old man with not much effort.

Forgive if my english didn't got you right.

Did you mean that Fred's farts are a danger for the environment, the ozon layer and for global warming?

I can't figure what emissions a car made with natural stone rollers, natural wood from dead threes, and leather from some dead dinosaurs, would produce.
