Mini-E California Cruising...

Zipping around in the cold California sunshine.
Mini-E #183 now has 22,500 miles on the odo.

Status: Incredibly fun, extremely reliable, cheap to drive, and I still occasionally burst out in spontaneous laughter, I am literally driving on sunshine with no emissions from the power source or the car for less than 50 cents a gallon. Best car in 32 years of driving.

Anxieties: Lots of them.
Giving Mini-E# 183 back to BMW, waiting for the Active-E, waiting for the Megacity, waiting for a plug in hybrid SUV with the first 40 miles electric, (are you listening BMW?) watching the San Diego Chargers play football, dry turkey on Thanksgiving.

Hopey Changey: I "hope" the 2010 “Tea Party” realizes that the original Tea Party of 1773 was made up of American Patriots of all political beliefs unified in freedom and liberty, not just “repackaged right wing republicans.” That the “Al Gores” of the world stop preying on fear and stop playing the American public for political fools and realize the world is not going to end anytime soon. Nice "change" on Ethanol, Al,

That 2011 brings new cars, new motive power and cleaner air.



  1. 1. Can you put a camera in your car and film the spontaneous laughter -- I'd love to see it!

    2. Yes, yes, yes on the 40-miles of pure electric range for a PHEV. Toyota and Honda have already lost me with their upcoming PHEVs because of the tiny 10-mile pure electric range. In fact, i don't think they quite get it. There are so many people out there that want badly to give up gasoline as much as possible. These folks are not out for higher miles per gallon rates, they're out to give up gas.

    Hybrids won't cut it anymore. In fact, I predict a massive move to PHEVs from hybrids exactly for this reason. And those PHEVs that offer longer all-electric range will beat out those that offer shorter range, hands down.
