Electric motorbikes - where will they be marketable?

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Mar 19th, 2008 3:36pm

First, electric cars. Now electric scooters. Would this be another class of vehicle to go zero-emission soon? I sure hope so, for the millions of motorbikes that are polluting the air in developing countries. Here is a picture of Ho Chih Minh City in Vietnam during rush hour. I have tried crossing the street (there is no choice if you are a pedestrian there) and it is real scary. Here is a picture of ...

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Mar 17th, 2008 3:30pm

We’ve all been there, us gals. We walk into a dealership and start looking around at the cars or trucks and we get approached by the salesperson. Let the pandering begin! I remember when I first started taking my Acura RSX in for service. My husband was with me and they spoke directly to him. Because why would I won that car? It has a manual transmission after all.

Go to a NASCAR race, meet your soulmate

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Mar 11th, 2008 9:40pm

Is NASCAR the new singles meeting place? Having worked in NASCAR for many years as a beat reporter, I am apt to say no -- it’s more like a playground for singles to hook-up, girls to trade booty for hot passes to get into the garage, and a place for unhappily married men to have a reprieve from life at home in the arms of equally shady chicks. However, my opinion aside, if you’re looking for love at ...
