Swind E Classic Electric Mini Cooper

First off – I love the classic Mini Cooper (I own one that has been converted with a Honda motor, much faster and more reliable), I also love electric cars (I own a Tesla). So, you would think that a classic Mini Cooper that has been electrified would have me excited. Well… it did… until I read the specs. Read on for this abomination.  (more…)

Smaller camp trailers usually mean less sleeping room of course. Well the folks at Dethleff’s rewrote the traditional design with their latest camp trailer, the C’Go Up. This tiny, sub-23-foot, camp trailer will sleep seven people in a series of stacked, convertible and lift-away beds. The front of the Dethleffs C’Go Up trailer is laid out for the kids with two bunk beds and a kids dining area. The kids dinette area also converts to a single bed. The rear of the trailer is set up for adults, with a master bedroom, and...

CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle Under 2k

What costs half as much as a Honda Monkey, is bigger, more capable, and you can get delivered to your house in about a week? The CSC SG250 San Gabriel ($1,995).

While I try to avoid buying things made in China (not easy, and I certainly can’t do it for everything) this bike has some pretty fair reviews online. Sure, it has rear drum brakes, tiny front disc brakes, and front shocks that look like they came off of a bicycle. But that isn’t the point with this bike, at least not in my opinion. If you want a fun little commuter bike (assuming you aren’t on the freeway much, or at all), the CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle checks a bunch of boxes. All for less than $2k! (more…)

Got $110K kicking around and have nostalgia for the 1960’s Lincoln Continentals with suicide doors, but want something a bit more modern? This limited edition Lincoln Continental is being built to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Continental. This 2019 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition will be limited to just 80-units worldwide and has a price tag of $110k. Unfortunately they sold out in just 48 hours, so you you will have to find someone selling their personal car. The interior is from Lincoln’s Black Label trim...

Tesla just released a new “portable” wall charger. It looks similar to the hard wired version but comes with a NEMA 14-50 plug. This new charger can charge 25% faster than the Gen 2 Mobile Connector which comes with the car (this assumes you have 50-amps at the wall). It will work with the Model S, Model X, and Model 3 vehicles. I like the idea of this little charge because it bridges the gap between home and portable use as most folks have a NEMA 14-50 port for their electric clothes dryer. This would also allow Tesla owners...

Remember the Skully AR-1 Smart Helmet that was taking preorders, just like this one? Skully was going to be the first smart helmet but ended in scandal. To be clear, I am not comparing the two companies other than the fact that they are both trying to develop smart helmets...

Forget about the price, the minimal reviews, and the low star rating. Gamble a bit. Get yourself a one wheeled electric scooter. This bad boy will go 20 miles per hour, has an LED headlight, LED display, horn, and a removable battery. Get your SuperRide Self Balancing Electric One Wheel Scooter here.

Yep, that beauty pictured above started off as a gas powered 1967 Mustang. Now, it is more modern than most cars on the road. This car came to life from a Russian EV startup, Aviar Motors, and they are taking a 100kWh Tesla battery and running gear and placing it in an aluminum and carbon fiber frame/chassis based on the 67 Mustang fastback. This means that you will get 315 miles of range, 840 hp, 155 mph top speed, and a 0 to 60 mph  time of just  2.2 seconds. They even used the Tesla screen and door handles. Pretty impressive work...

The Hyundai elevate is what is dubbed as an Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV). Watch the Elevate traverse some crazy terrain after the break. (more…)

Tesla_Roadster_0-60_Test

This awesome video shows the 2020 Tesla Roadster taking test riders on accelerations runs. For reference the Tesla Roadster can go from 0-60 mph in 1.8 or 1.9 seconds. Wild. That is the amazing part, the bummer part is the price tag ($200,000 to $250,000).

On to the video of people cursing as they are pinned to the back of their seats.s (more…)
