DAVE BURGE FOR CAR CZAR

April 09th, 2009 by GST

The man has a plan. And he has assembled a team that can save Detroit.  Join with me in sending Iowahawk and his Council of Automotive Advisors to Washington. 

We’re at a crossroads.  We can drive this:

Smart car

"Smart" car

Or we can drive this:

What God intended us to drive.

What God intended us to drive.

Scrolling through Iowahawk’s Flickr feed, I came across this:

This illustrates my belief that in order to build awesome custom motorcycles, it helps to be “double jointed.”

I find the first carriage to be like a small beaver trap, cold and confining. My paws and tail would harden and I would long for the spring stream. The second cart reminds me ofthe muskrat, swimming and dashing along the shore of the brook, fast and free. It makes my heart glad and I know there will be much pemmican made of this, but there you are.

Anyone reading this is welcome to a ride in my Smart Car. It makes me smile every day….and I drove it to work for a month on $22 of gas.

Mike, do you think you could resist smiling when riding in the second car above? It looks like what I assume we will drive in heaven.

I have seen Smart Cars in Europe, and they fit in with the myriad of smaller cars and the narrow streets there. But I saw a Smart Car driving down a road in a nearby town, and I had a the kind of reaction one would have seeing a go-cart on the road. The “I hope nobody hits that” kind of reaction. It is so small compared to the larger SUVs, minivans, and pickup trucks. I think the risk of getting hit in a parking lot because you are not seen is significant, similar to a motorcycle. I used to get over 30mpg in the city and over 40mpg on the highway in my Toyota I had back in the 1980s, but it sure seemed like more car than the Smart. And it had a back seat and a hatchback for people and stuff.
