Honda N360 :thumbs:

Prius... :facepalm:
Honda N360 curb weight: 1,119 pounds. :thumbs:

Harbor Freight 40x49" trailer's maximum rated capacity: 870 pounds :facepalm:

Toyota Prius rated trailer towing capacity: 0 pounds. :banghead: (Y'all can convert it to kilograms without a calculator) :D

I would expect the regenerative braking system to burst into flames going down a grade as pictured with that much additional weight..... :popcorn:

Bah, silly Americans think they need a bloody pickup or SUV tow anything.

Ever seen what they two with tiny little cars in Europe?

I don't know if this is funny or sad...LOL.

I just picked up another 03 VW TDI project/problem car this week, and pulled the EGR off last night...LOL.
The EGR valve was actually plugged worse than the intake...

So, Jack@European_Parts and I were heading west in his truck just after sunset last night, for the weekly Thursday steak night slicing of the cows. Jack was looking at the horizon, and noticed a most tiny sliver of the moon visible. After scanning the horizon for a few seconds, I saw it too. I told him that as silly as it sounds, there is an official record published for who spotted the "newest" new moon with a naked eye. I recorded the time - 23:26 UTC, and told him that I would look up the record tomorrow.

Well, it's tomorrow. :) The official naked-eye record is 15 hours, 32 minutes old. Our sighting:

New Moon: 2/18 @ 23:49:18 UTC
Our sighting: 2/19 @ 23:26 UTC
=====================
Age: 23 hours, 23 minutes, give or take the seconds.

So, in the words of a bad Seinfeld character, NO RECORD FOR YOU! :( Not a bad sighting, just not one worthy of the record books.....

Well, because there's no mark/model of my car listed, let's say its temporarily Ferrari.
It's moped-car ligie nova, from 2005.
Has got total engine repair for1200 EUR(Mulgi Moto(compamny))
Start good even in cold. Max speed 65, allowed 45.
Grown-ups aren't required to have license, can be driven even when driver license is in hold.
In ideal needs new front bumper (125eur), but drives without it
Black nose, because it had a small fender-bender. Bumper is installed, but little bit broken.
Warms up good, music yells over wildly rowing half-liter diesel.
Lights show blue where-ever they want, EVEN BRAKES WORK. Both foot and hand.
Only insurance required, no inspection. With all pros(engine repair) and cons(bumper) cheapest mopi(hard to translate) in market.

Will trade for house, car, ATV, bug rider, airplane or whatever you offer.

Little Bastard

Sorry:License got taken away.
