Apparently loads in Tenerife etc. for tourist hire.
Tangentially, Tenerife is probably a really good place for electric cars - you are never far from a charge point, and it's always windy so the turbines are always generating.
Is anyone else now being bombarded by Ali-Baba ads for one of these abortions? Three different sites so far this afternoon.
I'd drive it home.
I forget that the alcohol level for driving in England is not as low as here. I've long been of the mindset that if I'm having any alcohol at all I won't drive at all. Easier than trying to do the metabolism maths and taking unnecessary risks.
Or the pub is just across the field from here
You think that'd get across the field?
If I was drunk, I'd probably think that.
It'd make an interesting chase.
I had a pursuit with a road cleaning "scarab" machine once. It had been TWOC'd by a pissed up young woman and I chased her around Reading town centre. I made The Sun with that one, lol.
Note the use of the word "woman" not "lady".
No epic tale starts with "we were around the vicarage, drinking Shirley Temples...".
No but I would not be surprised if I got Amazon Ads for a 15-18 tonne Scarab road cleaner!
It wasn't one of those big ones. A small one person thing that whizzes up and down pavements etc.
This was in the late 80's/early '90's so if you have been googling it, it isn't one of the stories that appears.
So how far has the car progressed? Autocar carried out this comparison between two cars a couple of years ago and there's a 90-year gap between them.
Because of the diameter of the Austin 7's wheels, it's a darn sight more comfortable over pot-holes than many modern cars, whilst the space the 4 passengers have, is also pretty good too. Doesn't do more than 40mph and a doddle to park! I remember back in the 70s seeing a French farmer carrying a couple of goats in the back; I suppose on arriving at the market he also had to buy a replacement beret though.
Maybe Citron need to resurrect the 2CV, put a modern 600cc engine in it and run the thing on Biofuel or LPG as many of the Tuk-Tuks in Asia do? Just make sure you and your passengers aren't prone to sea-sickness whilst on a rough road or cornering 'fast' ....
Do you mean "abortions" as to some that is a very upsetting subject, do you mean abominations ?
There's actually a lot of better/safer looking small EV's getting released in China at the moment, the 4k to 10k market has a lot. Check out the latest Fully Charged Show on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/fullychargedshow) - although it's for the subscribers for the first 24 hours so do it tomorrow!.
I have been on four different flights when the captain has aborted either the take-off or landing. I was very pleased about that on each occasion.
