Some cars were designated "evolved" because they were some touchstone in the evolution. Other than the Chrysler Airflow, I don't see it but somebody made that call.

I'll take the Ruxton.

Burn the rest.

New cars are OK if you know the language.

It's complicated...

why the fuck not.

I've seen uglier. I've *driven* uglier. Could be brightened up with a single color paint job...


crashbar/towhitch is a nice touch.

The structural integrity of that Vette concerns me.

Wasn't great to begin with.:neutral:




Would make a decent HotWheels car, though.

That Corvette used to live in Laguna Beach Ca. It some times has a box equipment trailer behind it. That is a contemporary picture at the Trader Joe's in El Toro Ca? There have been others. Edit: That is a new licence plate

Autonomous cars will have a PR problem for a long time. Even if/when they are statistically much safer than human-driven cars, and even when the novelty of an autonomous car crash is no longer a news story on its own, they will still make mistakes that no human would ever make (because they aren't human), and therefore remain in the news.

They will also be a big headache for insurance companies to sort out.
Not my fault, the car was driving itself. I can't be charged with a violation or a higher insurance rate, go see Elon. :jail:

Man, I was thinking that very thought while reading HapMo's post.

I was wondering who'd pay for it, the human, who, like Bruce said, wasn't driving, and can't be held at fault, the insurance co (Would the insurance rate be based on the self-driving programming, the company whose algorithm is being used, or the car manufacturer's track reord ?), or the car co?

It's a slippery can o' worms...

I can see it being a group policy managed by the car company, but the car is constantly watching you to see if you violate their EULA.

They would be stupid to not do it hat way. Elon Musk got his start with PayPal, revolutionizing payment systems, I can totally see him revolutionizing insurance too. You buy a car, you have to subscribe to their insurance plan too. Why haven't they done this already?
