Throw away that nasty old ’76 Corvette. The Prius is the new Pussy Wagon!

Alternative Fuel Vehicle

I’m sure those engines will burn pretty much any combustible liquid.  That’s good for the environment, right?

F1 Belgian Grand Prix 1998

Just the random vid for the day.  Last weekend was this year’s first F1 race, and I haven’t seen it yet but I have been looking up F1 information.  This from the years that I was watching obsessively.

As long as we’re on the subject of cars from East Germany – Trabant!!

The saddest little, underpowered, over-polluting car ever.  But so CUTE!!

Introduced in 1957, the car was named Trabant in honor of the Sputnik sattellite.  Trabant means “fellow traveler” in latin, which is the latin way to say “Sattellite.”  They have become a cultural icon.  They are affectionately known as “Trabbi.”

Wouldn’t you rather drive a Wartburg?

Wartburgs had a three-cylinder two-stroke engine with only seven moving parts.  They were made in East Germany.  Can you imagine the thick, blue smoke in the streets?

A Sporty Wartbug!

What a Sporty Wartbug!
