    It shouldn't be that way. One of the arguments for EVs is that the powertrain is so simple, but then manufacturers add hundreds of black boxes and make parts impossible to get. I still like the idea of converting an old luxury sedan as that seems a fitting place for an electric motor, but I doubt I will ever buy a Tesla.

    for example, you have not enough money for a 4 seats sport cars????
    The 1999 Mazda Protégé ES 1.8 is powerful for drift! Under $3,000

    So you just do these things on public roads, making sure you don't see any cars behind you?
    It hasn't even come under three bucks yet here, though I live in California so that's to be expected.

    Random thought I just had: how bad do overheating breaks smell? Seems to me like it would produce some sort of odor.

    I could honestly drift my 2014 Civic if I really wanted to, but doing that on public roads is dangerous.

    I mean, if arabs can do, why not us, right? I would never do that though.

    Yeah, probably about a week ago it was around 80 cents here in Minnesota. It's back up to around $1.20 last time I checked, but I haven't gotten out much.

    While many people believe the Yugo was the worst-built car in recent US history, reliability questionaires from Popular Mechanics actually show it to have been less likely to fail during the early period of its ownership than cars like the 1982 DeLorean DMC-12, 1969 AMC AMX, 1975 Chevrolet Monza 2+2 or 1976 Cadillac Seville.

    Since I last posted about my car hunt, the Subaru Forester at a local Chrysler dealership got sent to wholesale, the GM dealer in Anchorage (Kia Forte, Chevy Spark, Hyundai Veloster) isn't doing any test drives at all, the Nissan dealership with the Mazdas is doing one per person per day so I might not be able to test the Miata. It's annoying, but I'm driving my mother's car right now and she's going completely stir-crazy without it, so I may end up in a Mazda3 that I never particularly wanted very much. Stay tuned.

    I really hope you can do another car thing where you provide links to dealership sites. Those posts are entertaining and informative in my opinion.
