The Cow Car Rides Again!

June 6, 2018

Why would anyone cover their car with COW SPOTS!? There’s gotta be a story behind that. Yes, there is. This is that story. My first car was about what everybody’s first car should have been – small engine, manual transmission, good fuel economy, and NOT cool. It was a brown 1987 Geo Spectrum, a rebadged […]

Since I bought my car used, it didn’t have the window sticker that describes the car’s fuel economy and several other important pieces of information. Recently, I found a photo of one from another car that […]

LED Lighting Upgrade!

January 1, 2016

I just got done upgrading the lights on my electric car. Nope, not the headlights, just the dome lights and license plate lights.

The iMiEV is back!

December 30, 2015

I got my car back yesterday! The dealer had my car for 20 days! I was told that much of that was waiting for parts, and then “well it’s the holidays…”.

iMiEV: Recalls, Chargers, and an Electric Blanket

December 9, 2015

One thing that I knew was going to be a bit of a challenge about owning an iMiEV is that there is no certified Mitsubishi dealership near me. That’s right, you can’t get the car serviced just anywhere – only at OFFICIAL iMiEV certified Mitsubishi Dealerships. The one closest to me is in McHenry, Illinois, […]
