Car of the future, 2006 style 

The Loremo is a lightweight with a 15 kW engine, does 160 km/h, and sips fuel at 1·5 l/100 km; a GT model does 36 kW and 220 km/h.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
