Nothing against unshiny paint - beaters have been around for years and can be as cool as a shiny rod. To me, a rat rod is a whole different kettle of fish.Having shiny paint doesn't mean it's built properly. Rat rods are an aesthetic choice, I doubt we'll be judged at MOT time for that!
....but I bet YOU dont own one, someone else dime, there is a difference, you dont care how much it costs, to charge, etx etc,Five years ago that would have been true but it’s not even close these days.
An example is where I work…we have five pure electric VW’s that regularly see 200+ miles per day, they’re charged at work via a stored solar system and, if they want to charge them whilst out on the road, then it’s not a problem as the infrastructure is more than large enough for them to charge wherever they want to without having to “stay in a B&B overnight” as they charge 80% of capacity in 20 minutes.
It’s not free driving but it is just a different type of driving and technology is improving at a hell of a rate.
Think of it like this, the more electric cars there are out there then the longer the finite reserves of petrol will last for us to burn.
Oh, and I’m the fleet manager that introduced them to the business so it is possible to wear two hats, eco and hot rodder
As soon as anyone makes a car that can carry six people, tow a race car trailer or be a general tat wagon like my Mk7 Transit daily then I would gladly switch to electric for every day use. I commute 25 miles to work so from a fuel and company vehicle benefit in kind it makes absolute sense as I can charge it at work for free.....but I bet YOU dont own one, someone else dime, there is a difference, you dont care how much it costs, to charge, etx etc,
Also, you dare not get rid of your gas/derv vehicles completely and park electric only in your drive, you would be too scared to do it, prove me wrong.
