Tow Vehicle gets 35 MPG !



The Good


No pollution control
Independent suspension
Cruse control
Drive by wire/rope
Spare tire carrier
Runs on low quality water

The Bad


Slow accelerating
Low top speed



The Ugly


Prone to backfiring and frontfiring





Michael

Your painting there is one of my faves -- a print of it rests on top of our mantel right now. Low speed is one thing -- but is it measured in mph or furlongs per fortnight? Would I have the option of using oxygenated water or biowater?

Very nice, Thanks Michael. Mileage may better expressed in miles per bushel, though. Methane might be a useful byproduct....

Always a plus when your transportation can off road, do the driving independently, and keep you warm and never rust or corrode.

Great come on for a thread and wonderful art print. Love your work! Working on new graphics? Can we sneek a peek?

That is cool, looks just like it's all lit up with light! I like... Nice mug shot in Airstream Life magazine too. No one sports a blue beret like you do, must be the magic martinis.
