I love going top down, but with old convertibles it's even better because the belt line is so much lower. modern convertibles have really high belt lines so you feel less like you're actually out in the open air.

of course, that's also what makes my car a fucking death trap

Sure, based on ">muh performance" etc it's not the best layout, but it depends what driving is for you.
I like to go on holiday by car a lot, and I've driven to a lot of different European cities in a few different cars.
Nothing beats a roadster to really feel the sights and smells of a new countryside, or to cruise around the Champs Elysees in Paris at night, or to drive by the Italian riviera etc

I go top down in all seasons, when it's chilly I just put on a scarf.

But if you cannot enjoy that top down experience then I can't really recommend it. There's no real point then. But I hate being in my own bubble when I'm travelling to somewhere new, I really want to experience everything. It's not just "roll down the windows lmao", the convertible top adds a new dimension to it.

You can use electric battery to power it and replace you when you are tired. With the prices of oil rising give me one good reason besides the price, not to get a velomobile.

Could you make a motorcycle sidecar with the wheel in between the riders legs? I want a thin sidecar and I think this could work. See illustration for details.

sidecars are already unstable and a narrower axle width would make them even more prone to rolling

To be fair, you can be /out/ and /o/, the two aren't mutually exclusive.

>i’m looking for an easy explained text
Very first thing you need to do is take a long metal screw driver and touch both contacts on the battery. This resets your settings and allows you to disconnect your stereo without screwing with the car's electronic board inside the engine bay which stores all your data.

I can walk you through the rest, but it can get kind of lengthy. Let me know when you've done the first step.

>tfw youll never be that guy with tincan doing speed run

Why has no manufacturer built a proper, sporty, one-seater car? There's an entire market that's been unfulfilled for years, being given shitty alternatives like 'slightly sporty family cars'. The cheapest good thing approaching true sportiness and true practicality is an RS6, and even then it's clearly a heavy car in terms of its handling.
What a one-seater car could do is cost less, therefore enable more people to have both a sporty car and a practical car, whilst being fuel-efficient and incredibly light for great handling. If successful, it would also spawn a large second-hand market to provide (with the lesser powered variants) a great used car market for younger enthusiasts looking for good first cars for cheap. I'm thinking £15-35k bracket new - maybe ranging from between 120 to 300hp, and possibly requiring electric power due to size restrictions. Pic a VW sketch of a one-seater interior.

if i have a practical car as well id rather pay 35k for a one-seater that was more fuel efficient, lighter, more fun/better handling etc. than it's two-seated counterpart

Okay. But you can see that nobody else is interested in that right?
If anything cars are getting bigger and bigger.
What you want is really niche, and it's a niche that is shrinking every year.

I got $18k for a car. I really want a 2015 Mercedes cla 250 but I know almost nothing about Mercedes. 18k is already really pushing it for what I can afford (65k a year as a college professor)

Is it going to be a nightmare to maintain and become too expensive to fix at 100k miles? I just want something for 10-18 grand that might get my butthole fingered, as well as might last me for a while without having to be in the shop more than it is on the road.

Generally speaking unless you roll up in an exotic, women don't care about your car. Sorry Dr. your old ass should have had its fun back when you were a student, rather than a professor. Or if your goal is to fuck college kids, make your class harder to get good grades in. Just because this is a thread, I'd be willing to bet you don't teach a hard science, so just give the QTs shit grades consistently until they break down.

there is almost no point in daily driving a newer car except for better mpgs and better safety standards. Lots of old cars still get up to 40 mpg and safety standards only matter in collisions. It is strictly more economical to drive used old cars.
