Tevin Bolden: Green thing

Thats a Lada, It's been in the hood for more than two years now.The pic is old as the street has been under major construction for over a year now! Now that I've found this great site I'll post a couple shots of the work.

I've heard people want more "green" vehicle options --- I don't think this is what they meant! har har.

The picture's not that old. I took it in August I think.

steelisreal: 15th Nov 2007 - 23:39 GMT

that is awesome, I have see astroturf bicycles and a motorcycle but this is the first car.

Cameo: 16th Nov 2007 - 13:17 GMT

Why does the car have snow tires on it in August?

Spokesman: These days, everyone's talking about the Hyundai, and the Yugo. Both nice cars, if you've got $3,000 or $4,000 to throw around. But, for those of us whose name doesn't happen to be Rockefeller, finally there's some good news - a car with a sticker price of $179. That's right, $179. The name of the car?

Adobe. The sassy new Mexican import that's made out of clay. German engineering and Mexican know-how helped create the first car to break the $200 barrier. At this price, you might not expect more than reliable transportation - but, brother, you get it! Extra features: like the custom contour seats, or the beverage-gripping dash. And the money you save isn't exactly small change!

Jingle:
"Hey, hey, we're Adobe!
The little car that's made out of clay!
We're gonna save you some money
that you can spend in some other way!
Hey, hey, we're Adobe!
Hey, hey, we're Adobe!
Adobe!"

Adobe driver gets into a fender-bender. She casually steps out of the vehicle and uses her hands to mold her bumper back into its proper shape, in under six minutes!

Spokesman: Adobe. You can buy a cheaper car. But I wouldn't recommend it!

Announcer: Not approved for street use in some states. No warranty either expressed or implied. All sales final.
