Silly Electric Car video

A guy I know saw this video and e-mailed it to me. He mentioned that I need a government bail-out

I've seen the text and photo version of this ad before, but now, somebody made a video version.

Here's what happens when cars are designed by the government:



As an odd side note.

1) I do own a Citicar
2) 22.5 HP is pretty darn close to the size of my Metro motor
3) 45 MPH is the top speed on the Metro
4) No, I don't dress or dance like that...

Apparently it's somebody's comment on how terrible it would be if the government got into making cars through their bailout plan.

I don't know.....The EV-1 was basically built because of that CARB law, seatbelts and airbags pretty much only exist because of legislation as well.

I like the EV-1, seatbelts, and airbags, so not all legislation is bad.

Mostly, I just like this video because it has such cool little cars in it!!!

Very true on the little car envy, that is part of why I own two c-cars (citi and commuta) and my parents have a Honda N600, I wonder where you get the old stock footage of those cars... that stock footage would be great at car shows.
