Last Call: And a Card In The Spokes? Edition

I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to hear my pilot say over the intercom is “weeeeeeeee!”

    Have you guys seen the works of Simon Stålenhag? He does some cool sci-fi scenery featuring a lot of very detailed and hoon-worthy vehicles.

      Local VW club hires a car that even THEY can overtake!

      Farmer Jones hopped into his trusty flivver and made for the hills. It would be his only possession to survive the infestation of Embankment Beetles that eroded the levee and flooded the farm.

    More road trip music! Excellent tour of roadside attractions. (I especially like that he went to Howard Finster’s house, a.k.a. Paradise Gardens.)

      His podcast is pretty good, too.

    The time has come to replace my wife’s MDX. She was willing to move away from a SUV this time, so I found her an ’08 S80. Picked it up today. She loves it. They sure have come a long way since the 01 V70 we have for our son.

    For anyone in need of an Acoma Mini Comtesse, here’s one in Chicago. With three primary wheels, 49cc engine, and auxiliary foot pedal, I imagine many states would grudgingly license it as a moped.

      One of the doors appears to be utterly redundant – until you roll onto it and need to get out the other way?

        It’s to stop hazards similar to what could happen with the UK-market BMW Isetta, which had one door, in the front, and no reverse gear. So if you drove too close to a wall in front of you you were stuck…

          I have no doubt that many British-market Isettas suffered transmission failures, but despite the ubiquity of that story, Isettas were manufactured with reverse.

            Having looked a bit more, they all *came with* reverse but the law was that the British-made three-wheeled versions could be driven on a motorcycle license if it was blanked off.
            I’m not sure how many people did that, though.

        This way the driver has a choice between a gullwing and a conventional door. Liberté and égalité if not, as a single-seater, so much fraternité. Still, two out of three ain’t bad.

    Not the clearest of VISITs, but here’s a picture of what we in my corner of the world call a “pikkøp” and something decidedly bigger, slightly resembling the former vehicle.
