Re: i-MiEV Salvage Opportunity

... even though it won't go to READY (airbag deploy will prevent start)... Darn, I missed the bidding! :evil: My buddy drove this car for quite a few days AFTER the accident. No airbag and the seat belt wouldn't work; other than that it drove nicely (and straight). I think somebody got a good deal ...

Upon arriving home from our cross-country Tesla trip, I saw more non-Tesla EVs in one brief drive to town than I did on our entire US trip. Here, I stopped by the hardware store -

Re: Back-In Parking

Drones are on my bucket list - this was nothing more than a screenshot of a Google Map satellite view of this town's main street; I should have given them credit up front.

Just before reaching the Wyoming borde...

i-MiEV Salvage Opportunity

My good friend in New Orleans was involved in a relatively-minor fender-bender (a woman turned left in front of him - her fault) with his low-mileage 2016 i-MiEV that resulted in driver's airbag deployment. He drove it a bit after the crash - it tracked straight and he thinks everything but the seat...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Another brief update - have covered over 9000 miles since we started in early September, touristing and visiting extended family and friends. Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia (and part of Cape Breton Island), down through Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, etc., down to New Orleans and presently in Dal...
