Dream car

2007-10-5 @ 11:01

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m not into cars. I mean, they’re great to go from point A to point B, especially when you’ve got a lot to carry between the two, or you don’t want to spend too much time in-between. And they’re quite useful when you’re in the middle of nowhere. (They’re a bit less practical when you back into the ditch, but that’s another story.) The only car I have so far owned (actually, leased) was an Echo – not the best looking, but a lot of room and best fuel economy in its class.

My dream car actually doesn’t exist (let’s say yet). The make is not that important, it’s the inside (and part of the outside) that matters: wheel-motors (which a subsidiary of Hydro-Quebec invented some years ago), (organic) photovoltaic arrays over the paint job, cells based on so-called “cold fusion” (unbeatable efficiency: you get out virtually all you get in). I realize that most of the technology is far from ready (“cold fusion” cells are still very limited in size), but hey, I said “dream car.”

What do you think?
