I haven’t looked but the average new car for a cheapie but not thee cheapest is something about 25k with around9% interest and fees from what I see although here too,your result may vary. I was curious about a term known as ckd or complete knockdown as in one must assemble the product, it may not be wholly dissasembled but the package is “complete” Ithen couldn’t find much on the subject till I hit upon whats a modern price and? voila, we go to malaysia where you can still get a public whipping i’n you want one for a surprisingly silly offense to say where I’m at…ra ra usa. well It takes some doing making the minimalist sense of numbers and so the malaysian assembled vehicle minus insurance is 130,888 for a volkswagon sorta like a jetta. I really didn’t capture an exact price but the usa exchange this instant says that’s approximately 42k dollars a minor bite above my market. now the point of this isn’t the cost but the feeling of how can one nearly afford in one year a car in the usa and yet in malaysia it is from what I saw 3 years to afford the jetta option… that just seemed wierd. to the credit side of malaysia though they do have far lower interest rates going.
I was and have looked up quite a lot on the steam car. be this a boble e type roadster oo lala with that almost traffic cone side window so very distinctive. be this an earlier white which was such good steel that most were melted down for the ww1 war effort. ghosts of tries like the baker automobile based out of of all places pueblo colorado which isn’t exactly home but geographically close wow colorado could have been motown!… the linde hop aint nowadays beebop moving on. or brooks being canada’s notable steam car folk… belsseler became what doble couldn’t be but nothing says he did any better as obviously past indiosynchracies steam was dead by the mid twenties and who had money for innovation in the depression…plenty but not for steam. stanley is the name when people think steam cars and or household carpet cleaning in the usa which sure does make a steam car researching difficult and steam cars as a term links more to steam cleaning the cars than steam powered cars. modern steam seems to be an embarassment swept under the rug in the late sixties early seventies. no modern as in 21rst century vehicle past the one offs at soapbox derby clunkers or million dollar speedrecord buster jets on wheels seem to exist. the most interesting thing on steam and modern still is peter peland and the pelandini cars that are small things from kits…and a whole lot of nothing further on it save he did this or that or couldn’t do this or that…it’s really like reading an obituary trying to read anything about steam powered cars. yet,without exception there is some development somewhere forever chasing the dream steam. the cyclone mark 5 is about enough to do the modern automobile thing. jay leno in an afterbreath seems to have said it best when he offhanded that steams just fine if you don’t mind 6miles to the gallon. that last sentence isn’t a quote just how I left and remembered that information. and here’s an interesting enough to me segway to other topics.
steam era cars had not the electricity so the gas light was the headlight. I thought that neat as i still have and always since highschool have had an affinity to a material that with this or that makes fire fuel. water to fire ahhhh. stirs my soul really. yes duh it’s dangerous and I wouldn’t reccommend them save in safe enough situation which there seems to be a limit of that. its a flammable gas acetylene from calcium carbide and thus you can knoc out flames but to turn off the leaking gas must be full proof automatic and lets be fair in the nineteenhundreds it wasn’t. however as steampunk vintage goes oo lala. think of that deserted michigan cabin in the woods with snow by the cat load high and the hiss of calcium carbide bubbling up the woof for let there be light…
the really neat thing about being able to tollerate boring things is, I can read long enough into a hempseed to oil production average with all those if you do it rights heheheheh.. and see that hempseed is about 2.4 tonnes per acre now I hope that means tons because I know there are some words that don’t have the exact measurement as in america…but presuming my math is wrong the idea is not, bio fuel is an expensive proposition… in this case… 2.4 tons per acre is roughly 300 gallons. I hate to break the new to you that a lot of land area to go from place to place. now racinic plants like palma christi can be close to this fantasy of biofuel that is 2 acres to every man if, IF he could sustain forever intensity which no land can … that is
an odd thing to remember from jw notions I heard of paradise by the way that’s an abundance of food and fuel and with hemp fibre pants and paper… it just neglects the earth must rest or be conditioned or it depletes and blows or is carried away. but anyways the haha of two acres or two drivers what a lifestyle let down the earth can be… now onto the dreamland of ocean algae oil. 😀
