I don't think that red one is $4000 worth but the other guy seemed to get a fair price. Something like $1300?

What they would be cool for is a closed circuit racetrack. 20 of these identically prepared, wheel to wheel. Oh! Better still, 100 of them each with a US Senator driving and that's how future legislation gets passed. I'd be a Cspan watching fool!

John Ross paid $1,800. He says they last forever, probably because of how simple they are mechanically, and because the owners are likely willing to drive them despite minor broken components.

Well, with Senators racing those we wouldn't need to worry about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying "You get a trillion dollars! You get a trillion dollars! And you get a trillion dollars! Corporations?! You get fined a trillion dollars! You get fined a trillion dollars! And you get fined a trillion dollars!"

Another one that has not done 500 miles per year! Think of the fuel you'd save!

This must be the automotive equivalent of dwarf bread.
Quote:
"Well, now," said Granny, rubbing her hands together, "I may be able to help you here. Could be I've got some dwarf bread to spare."
"Nah. Not proper dwarf bread, " said the spokesdwarf moodily. "Proper dwarf bread's got to be dropped in rivers and dried out and sat on and left and looked at every day and put away again. You just can't get it down here."
"This could be," said Granny Weatherwax, "your lucky day."
"To be frank," said Nanny Ogg, "I think the cat pissed on some of it."
The spokesdwarf looked up, his eyes aglow.
"Hot damn!"
or, more to the point:
Quote:
"It was miraculous, the dwarf bread. No one ever went hungry when they had some dwarf bread to avoid. You only had to look at it for a moment, and instantly you could think of dozens of things you'd rather eat. Your boots, for example. Mountains. Raw sheep. Your own foot."
"Shall we take the car?"
"Nah, I got a blister on my foot. We'll walk."
"Huh? If you have a blister, why not take the car?"
"Hey, it is one blister, not 50! Pay attention!"

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

The dwarf bread was brought out for inspection. But it was miraculous, the dwarf bread. No one ever went hungry when they had some dwarf bread to avoid. You only had to look at it for a moment, and instantly you could think of dozens of things you'd rather eat. Your boots, for example. Mountains. Raw sheep. Your own foot.

"Bet it's a long time since you've had proper dwarf bread, then," said Granny.
The spokesdwarf's eyes misted over.
"Baked from the finest stone-ground grit, just like mother used to jump up and down on it," Granny went on.
A sort of collective sigh went up from the dwarfs.
"you just can't get it down here," said the spokesdwarf, to the ground. "It's the water, or something. It falls to bits after hardly any years at all."
"They puts flour in it," said someone behind him, sourly.
"It's worse'n that. The baker over in Genua puts dried fruit in it," said another dwarf.
"Well, now," said Granny, rubbing her hands together, "I may be able to help you here. Could be I've got some dwarf bread to spare."
"Nah. Not proper dwarf bread, " said the spokesdwarf moodily. "Proper dwarf bread's got to be dropped in rivers and dried out and sat on and left and looked at every day and put away again. You just can't get it down here."

I could not find any nationwide using AutoTempest and OfferUp.

Hopefully he makes a video for the Miles zx40 so I can sell for $4000

I will tell you what, you suggest that he buy one as soon as he posts a new video and let me know. I will /like the comment and second the notion, but it would help if you helped him find one. I did not find one on AutoTempest or OfferUp. I found one on GovDeals.com, but it sold in 2015.

I cannot find one for sale anywhere, but I do not know where to look.

The rest of the pictures of that Snyder for sale. JR has been working on other projects, getting his grandfather's F100 running again and assembling a Sprite.

I did find this: 2012 Snyder ST600-c $7,000. 207 miles!
Here is one with 1,440 miles for $4,850.00: Snyder St600-c 3 Wheel Motorcycle on 2040-motos

I'd like to see how a Renault Kwid compares to them regarding interior space.
