Back in October 2000 is when I found my car. Today, January 17th.2005, is when I say good-bye. After some thirty seven thousand miles in the last four and a half years, thirty seven thousand bumps on the road, thirty seven thousand unexpected puddles...(this is Boston) my very first car decided to quit and start a trip on his own. No more traffic jams, speed limits or expensive gas. Solar energy is cheap and allows you to travel far. Good luck my friend !
