A stretch Hummer!!! Sorry Gatoland, just make a limo joke.
When I took the photo I was wondering, square missing, more than enough car?
Too much car, for my liking!!!
Toledo, as well as an ancient city where the three religions coexist (Christianity, Judaism and Muslim), is a city of narrow streets where a small Mini has trouble twisting in some corners. Imagine the monster in the photo, not even allowed to enter the city, ha ha ha
or the worse, "the monster" would become stuck inside the city, never to roam the roads of freedom.
They are cars for attention, nothing more, and go whether the call, especially the police, ha ha ha
I have never driven or riden in a Hummer, but I have heard, that they ride terribly! The military in this country uses Hummers in their convoys.
Me neither but here also used the European version of the Humvee that was made (the company closed earlier this year by the crisis, after decades) here in Spain. They are monstrous, especially for traffic from Europe, unaccustomed to such large vehicles, they are also vehicles that spend a lot of fuel and remember that here costs more than twice that in the U.S., so people who bought one has sold, you can now buy used for a quarter of what they did with very little mileage, almost no one wants, there is much more efficient vehicles in rugged terrain that cost less and above all, consume a fraction, any Japanese, for example.
I saw a Hummer on the road yesterday. All I could think was how much money you're sinking into your gas guzzling gas tank!!!
If they see now that exports to Iran has closed six European countries, including Spain, gasoline is going to be at twice the price, I'll go oiling my bike...
I hope that doesn't happen! But if you can get around on alternate transportation...go for it. You'll save a ton of money!
Well the latest is that Iran does not sell oil to France and Britain thus appears that the party has just begun. There are many alternatives to car transport but none are realistic, electric cars are expensive and do not stop being a golf buggy with four added accessories, public transportation is very expensive and for me, I walk to my car almost 20,000 miles year, there is no clear alternative, the bike is fine but I have to commute morning and go about 200 miles in one day, it is impossible to make a bike ...
We have electric cars and hybrid cars...but they are priced well beyond what the average person can afford to spend on an automobile. With your mileage, what about a motorcycle?
It's all numbers, if you estimates of what it costs to buy one of those cars and the difference from a conventional one is that the numbers do not add up, are too expensive and the savings are questionable, have a sense if you travel only by land but if you use urban public transportation is that you're even greener and it saves money. I do a lot of distance with the car, I need a transport medium for the time being I am satisfied that I have, I meant in my previous comment on the bicycle, not the motorcycle, things of my poor English, for a walk or a ride short is good, but nothing else, is very dangerous.
a status symbol perhaps?
No, this does not occur as in the U.S., this is not about wanting to appear to be very environmentally friendly, this practice does not happen around here at least in cars, is because people prefer a 6-cylinder diesel (diesel, like the trucks) to a hybrid car.
Is diesel expensive over there?
Years ago it cost a third of the gasoline but today it costs about the same, a liter € 1.39 which equals $ 3.98 a gallon
Creo que el chófer debe tener el carnet de conducir autobuses porque lo que tiene que abrirse para girar, jeje.
Pues ya que lo dices he buscado en internet y en efecto hace falta el carnet C para camiones, en una página he leído que solo hay 15 de estas en todo el mundo y que por 300 euros la hora (esto era una noticia de 2005, a saber lo que cuesta a día de hoy) te ponen ellos el conductor ya que es necesario el permiso C y aparte que lo que tu dices, menudo trasto para girar en las calles de una ciudad, eso es para irse al casco antiguo de Toledo, al final lo tendrían que desguazar para sacarlo de allí, jajajaja, eso o con un helicópeto.
