So, I live about 1/2-mile from the main road, and every week have the pleasure of hauling my trash, recycling, and brush cans down there. Used to do it with my electric scooter, but its motor threw a magnet when a teenager I let use it tried it out as a dirtbike. Last week Mitti (with trailer hitch) set a new record for sheer number of cans ... as a kid I liked playing with trains... :roll:

I had approached both local dealers about getting their i-MiEV marketing displays when Mitsubishi allowed, and both came through with the green jellybeans!
Both of them had failed 12V power supplies for the led lights, but that is a very easy replacement.
And of course, the sign fits inside on our huge cargo floor, if the passenger seat is slid forward.
