I came across an interview by the Paris Review Magazine with William Gibson*, the sci-fi writer who created the neologism, “cyberspace.” His perspective is always so challenging and insightful.
This portion of the interview is making the rounds in cyberspace:
It’s harder to imagine the past that went away than it is to imagine the future. What we were… Continue reading
I’m assuming this guy was in his 70’s, well into his 70’s. He was rather feeble.
He was driving a new Mercedes Gullwing, a stunningly gorgeous car
He was so feeble, that getting into and out of the car was sadly comical.
The cool, funky door opened to the sky.
He took his read end, braced it against the headrest… Continue reading
So, to support free market capitalism, the Republicans in the state of North Carolina are working a bill through the state that bans the purchase of the Tesla Model S.
The car is wildly popular out here. I’m reading it’s a sensation on the east coast as well.
Tesla is the only auto maker that has repaid every dime of… Continue reading
So, this is going to be really, really annoying!
Apparently a startup in San Francisco is selling your daily routes to work and back to companies willing to post advertisements on your car.

If your car gets 25mpg (Most cars in the US don’t. The US average is 22mpg.)…

You are spending 0.16 to travel a single mile in your… Continue reading
Everyone knows I like to be environmentally conscious and give the oil industry as little money as possible. (I’ve blogged about my keen interest in the Nissan Leaf. I suspect that, as soon as I can test drive a Leaf, the Prius (Watts) will be replaced with one. In the meantime… )
Since resale values for Japanese autos are at… Continue reading
I’ve been in a vintage car mood for some reason…
And I’ve never considered myself a Porsche kind of guy until I saw how many of these were. Source of all images: Tumblr. Click any image to see the larger version.… Continue reading

You know, I’m fairly forgiving of people but not at all of corporations. For example: when the Exxon Valdez spilled oil all over Prince William Sound in Alaska back in 1989, I swore I would never knowingly purchase Exxon products again. Here 11 years later, I’ve kept that promise.
I was so annoyed by the crappy cars… Continue reading
I really like going to the El Segundo Antique Car show, held each year near the end of August. It’s free and is sponsored by the El Segundo Police Department, which I think is also cool. I first went in 2008. I was out of town last year on business and missed it. This year’s show was a little different… Continue reading
Regrettably, I didn’t keep track of where I found these and can not therefore site the source for your further exploration. But I found similar shots at this link. (Click the image below to see 3 pictures of the design.)… Continue reading
