Most men will get this right!
Q: You are driving along a narrow two lane road with a NO PASSING sign posted, and you come upon a bicycle rider. Do you:
(a) Follow this slow-moving bicycle rider for the next 2 miles, or
(b) Do you break the law and pass?

2. Strange dogs hanging out of windows.
10. Backseat drivers you back away from.

20. Cell phones worth more than your house.

Here’s a one seater car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap…
This $600 Volkswagen’s car gets 258 mpg, 109.687 km/l or 0,9 litre per 100 km!!!
Its Spartan interior does not sacrifice safety; the impact and roll-over protection is comparable to a GT
The aero design proved essential to getting the desired result.
The body is 3.47 meters long and just 1.25 meters wide, and a little over a meter high.
The prototype was made completely of carbon fibre and is not painted to save weight.
The power plant is a one cylinder diesel, positioned ahead of the rear axle and combined with an automatic shift controlled by a knob in the interior.
The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year:
Better than Electric Car – 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai
This is a single-seat car From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany .
Will be selling for 4000 Yuan, equivalent to US $600..
Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons
Speed = 62 – 74.6 Miles/hour
Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon
Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles or 646 km !!!

The ones in Coney Island and Rockaway Park back in the 20’s thru to the 50;s ran on electric .
Had a pole on the back going to a metal electrical charged overhead plate.
Yes, you read that right; these little beasties are street legal.
They run on either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and co-opt vintage bumper car bodies into the most awesome form of mini-car we’ve seen in too long. There are seven of these little monsters floating around California and they’re all the creation of one man, Tom Wright, a builder in the outskirts of San Diego who figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park needed a more dignified end than the trash heap.
They were originally powered by two cylinder Harley Davidson
Motorcycle engines but they rattled like heck because of the two cylinder
Vibration , so Tom replaces them with four cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750’s
And a couple have been measured as capable of 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast in machines with such a short wheelbase.
By the way, they are almost indestructible in accidents!

The New 2014 Mercedes Benz SCL 600
What’s different about this car?
Here is the real difference
No Steering Wheel
Do you think that you can drive with a joystick?
Your kids and
Grand kids sure can.
Influence of video games in our lives
Has really arrived, wouldn’t you
The SCARY THOUGHT is:
NOW a 3-YEAR-OLD can STEAL your car
AND DRIVE IT BETTER THAN YOU CAN !
