Scuderi Air Hybrid Engine

August 28, 2006

This thing looks like it has a chance. I’ll be keeping my eye on what happens next with it. The computer models seem to show it will work. They’re building a couple of prototypes that should be ready next year.

the bmw is ours

March 24, 2002

Picked up the car yesterday (thanks to Jim for driving me over to the dealership). It’s amazing. I “accidently” took the long way home to get a taste of how it behaves on the road. I’m in love. It’s really quite amazing. Never in my life did I want to own a BMW, and the test drive on this cream-puff changed me. Completely responsive amd solid. The little extras are a big change from the Escort GT (which up ’til now has been the best car I’ve owned).The Gophers beat Colorado College and will next play Michigan in the frozen Four at the Xcel Arena next weekend. I’m excited and think the Gophers have a legitimate shot at winning the whole thing (knocking on wood).

anyone want to buy a car?

I’ve got a great looking, great running, low-mileage (32100 miles) 1998 Honda Civic DX Hatchback for sale.Price: $10900.

Details: AM/FM Stereo. No Air Conditioning (hey, I made it through the past three summers). Honda no longer makes a hatchback, which sucks since they are *really* handy.

This is a great car and were it not for the fact that we need a bigger car, I’d keep it.
