And now for something...

Completely different...  I usually spend a few moments and check out the latest in gadget-tech and auto-tech each day.  Today, I came across this video of a cool little car.  This little two-seater electric car does 0-60mph in 3 seconds!  Now I understand all the eco-friendly reasons one would have an electric vehicle (or even a hybrid), but frankly they've all been a little too much eco and not enough fun.  Until they can come close to the performance and fun-to-drive factor of a good ole' all American V8, I'll pass.  The video of this electric car is amazing to watch as it catches up with the other cars on the road at an incredible rate.  Of course I'd still miss the gut wrenching, deep throaty growl of a well tuned exhaust.
