My Microbus AV concept will be shedding its big round headlights, sporting the squared-off C shape of VW's recent EV running lights in their place.  With their innovative products, Baja Designs show how this is possible.
 
#BrighterBolderBetter lights aren't just for desert people! Endurance racers need lights they don't out pace so they can run straight through the night and to the checkered flag.

Is it just me, or is the German word for "test drive" really, really funny?

As I suspected, it's not any real car at all (or it least it wasn't in June 2000):

Efforts to replenish the country's bee colonies are actually working. It's been reported that diligent beekeepers have helped to preserve and redevelop bee colonies, now up 40 to 60 percent, across the country.

PROJEKT:  MICROBUS AV
"overpowering the handbrake"

Just as the potential of this design compels me to develop it, its possible success has had a halting effect.  If things go as I think they should, this thing will eventually be everywhere.  So, you see, it has to be right.

And as you can see, it's not there yet.  Yet, I'm sharing this page of sketches in celebration of a triumph.  It wasn't easy to face the beast again, but again I am wrestling with it.

No, it's not that. It's my ego not letting me wear my glasses. I now chose to wear my glasses so that I can reread myself. It has nothing to do with French, or any other cultures for that matter of fact. And I'm not French anyway. Just happened to have been born there. Also, I need to turn that idiotic auto-correct...

Sprung from cages on Highway 9...
Albert Einstein kept a picture of Michael Faraday (along with Sir Isaac Newton) on his wall as inspiration for innovation. As the father of both the electromagnetic motor and electrochemical batteries, Faraday was a man dramatically ahead of his time. FF launches in 2017, and follows a similar ...

Wait, what's the German word for 'drive', again?
 
The e-Golf comes around with zero emissions. But what about the passengers?

Der e-Golf ist vollständig emissionsfrei. Aber gilt das auch für die Mitfahrer?

Introduction
My current profile image, made by manipulation of a tuning fork foto, is an approximation of an emblem I'd use for *Harmonic Conversions* -- a shop that would convert classic vehicles to electric.  'HC' is fictional, for now...

As there are 50,000 or more Phil Smiths in this world, I choose my username, 'filsmyth', over my given name, in an attempt to escape anonymity.  Google Plus splits it up, but maybe you can ignore the space after the short version?
