Just spent the weekend with one who has both.
Few and far between. So true!

If I have an electric truck, desire solar panels, but am skeptical on the back and forth science de jure..........that makes me what? Im thinking I'm like you, but that is really odd since I refuse to burn coal.

Oh how I wish it was that easy...

Even though I'm skeptical about man-made global warming, it doesn't mean I'm so favorable to gas-guzzlers when something more affordable and practical can get the job done, neither that a smaller vehicle should be mandated as some sort of one-size-fits-all approach.

I just noticed the comment.

It's an OEM VW part. They shipped in New Beetles and were supposed to be returned by the dealer, but I saw a stack of them at a swap meet. IIRC $8-10, I should've gotten more than one.

Still working on the electric car, all I have there is the Lexus rear axle.

I watched the one at Permalionk #804.

Palate cleanser: JACG: in April, 1996 the Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation acquired a Stratofreighter and returned it back to flying condition in Nov 2017


My uncle had one of these at the McMinnville airport, but it failed as a restaurant.

There are many types of climate change activists who claim to have a different motivation, yet in the end they display the very same degree of radicalism, and once in a while violence.
