How Big is Too Big? Supersized Hummer Poses Parking Problems

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Feb 19th, 2008 10:28am

The delivery guy drove the 2008 Hummer H2 up the ramp into my parking structure without any problems at all. I watched as he slowly drove under the bar that indicated the height limitation and I could see that he went safely underneath with inches to spare. Imagine my surprise upon exiting down the ramp, when we felt the roof of the humongous Hummer drag against the pole. And as if that wasn’t enough, when ...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Feb 12th, 2008 3:29pm

Here’s a fantastical idea. Imagine a public transport network that criss-crosses the sky on a monorail-like network, only that you have a personal vehicle, you don’t have a driver, and you don’t have to drive. It gets you straight to your destination without stopping. After you get off, it just goes back to the network. Sounds like science fiction? Guess again. SkyTran, a California company, ...
