Screw down payments, this is one hot car.
I saw one in Sausalito, you know, by the Maseratis. A little unpractical at $40k, I suppose.
FWIW, it’s 161.9 inches long, putting it between the Hyundai Accent and the VW GTI, 16 inches longer than a MINI Cooper.
Now that I’ve been carless for all of three months (though of course not internal combustion engine-less), I find that I’m becoming more aware of the things that having a car enables. For instance, just because San Francisco is hyper-walkable doesn’t mean everything I want can be found in one square mile. In particular, there is one thing I find myself missing more and more these days: green. Vegetation. Unbounded open spaces.
Having a car doesn’t fix San Francisco’s lack of green spaces (or warmth), but in my previous lives I would drive to places that felt like the middle of nowhere in under an hour. On weeknights.
In other news, this weekend Stephanie and I bought a tent. It has an attic which I think is pretty radical.
If anyone would like to join in or initiate any tent-related activities, especially those that involve cooking meat outdoors, let us know. Destinations within scootering distance a plus.
