Can they hack multiple cars from a distance? Or just the car in their immediate vicinity?

These guys hacked one car from a distance. Took control of it from their laptops over the internet.

yeah, I want a dumb car. fuck all of that park assist and lane correction sonar buullll shiiiit. That stuff is fraught with peril. And how do you NOT buy the extended warranty when you buy a car that has that kind of stuff going on?

With Obama opening relations with Cuba, just think of all the "dumb" cars
that will become available (cheaply ?) for restoration.

What's the shipping run for a 48 Chevy from Havana to, oh, say, central Pennsyltucky?

There's a Cuban rule against exporting them and they're all crap after all these years everything has been jerry rigged.

That is why you do a off the frame restoration.

What good will that do when everything has been butchered to adapt foreign parts and home built contraptions like gas from sugarcane converters.

fargon 07-24-2015 10:17 PM

About the only things you keep is the frame, body, and hard parts. Everything is either replaced or rebuilt.

xoxoxoBruce 07-24-2015 10:28 PM

The body's been butchered, the frame's been butchered, and the hard parts are mostly foreign or gone. You're better off with junk yard car, even if the body needs repairs, than one that's been eviscerated.

fargon 07-24-2015 10:32 PM

True. I have been hearing for years that they have been getting parts from Canada, but I don't know how true that is.

By the time you put the chocolate back in the thin candy shell it cost more than it's worth. :haha:
I'm sure there's jewels to be had, but searching them out and importing them would be way more than they are worth, except for the Cuban history bragging rights.

xoB's just trying to turn everyone else away while he corners the market. :cool:
