      his little whore won't be around for long. part of the deal was that he would be gone most of the time and not trying to mount her with those mounds of stinky blubber.

          Is interning for free, mopping the floors and emptying the shred boxes really "working"?

            1953 Conrero-Alfa Romeo 1900 Ghia

            This modified Alfa 1900 was built by Ghia for the Swiss gentleman racer Robert Fehlmann, who drove it in the 1953 Mille Miglia. It was the first car with a Supersonic body, styled by Ghia’s designer Giovanni Savonuzzi. Essentially it wasn’t fully an Alfa Romeo, only the Conrero-tuned engine came from an Alfa 1900. Savonuzzi constructed the chassis for this car specifically, using a Fiat 1400 front-axle and Lancia Aurelia rear-axle.

            Fehlmann crashed the car during the race, destroying the body. The chassis was repaired and rebodied as a spyder, and it ran again in the 1954 Mille Miglia.

            Despite it’s brief existence, the spectacular bodywork? attracted much attention. As a result, Ghia built several Supersonic bodies on an Aston Martin DB2/4, 8 Fiat 8V’s and 3 Jaguar XK120s. A similar style body was also created for the 1954 DeSoto Adventurer II concept.

            Mille Miglia is a great Italian restaurant in Kyiv.

              It's in the Radisson on Yaroslaviv Val, but not that building. That's the National Opera House not that far from the Radisson. And yes, the Opera house is beautiful inside and out.

                You may not like(not sure I do either) it but here is the future. It's a prototype right now with 4 motors and can make multiple passes down the strip before charging. Best time so far is an [email protected]

                electric cars are great as long as you don't want to drive more than an hour from home.

                or use lights or heat or air conditioning.

                or drive in the winter or in the heat when the batteries are less than optimal.

                or when the batteries are more than a couple years old.

                but if you live in San Diego, LA or SF fairly close to the water (because it's hot as you go inland), an electric car is perfect.

                All good points BUT trust me..it's coming.
                I have already thought of a way to build an integrated charging system using the driveline of the an electric car which will extend the charge severl hundred percent over anything in use right now and will NOT tell anyone what it involves......so simple I can't believe a rocket scientist like Musk hasn't thought of it.....rotating mass for millions baby.

                Sort of....My theory wouldn't work in this application(drag car)but in a 2WD passenger car application vehicle or one that can switch between AWD and 2WD what are your front wheels doing? How do electric motors provide current? BTW I'm not talking about an alternate full time charging system just a way to maintain the available charge....That's all I can say right now......hold on Elon is calling.....

                regenerative braking is already a thing.

                and you don't want to have braking when you're not braking.
