Green Car Congress smart Shows Diesel and Gasoline Hybrids EV…

12 December 2005 DaimlerChrysler’s smart division has developed a series of concept test cars that incorporate a range of advanced and alternative-fuel technologies: gasoline and diesel hybrids, cng-fueled, and electric. These follow on the premiere of the crosstown hybrid showcar concept presented at the Frankfurt auto show in September. The crosstown hybrid. The crosstown smart car prototype combines an electric motor (with an output of up to 23 kW) with the 45 kW (61 hp) gasoline engine from the smart fortwo.

Thursday, August 30, 2012 Crosstown drainage fix: Phase 1 of 4 nearing completion Riley says Tuesday’s flooding would have been worse without preliminary improvements Posted by Paul Bowers on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 12:18 PM Some of the streets in downtown Charleston looked like the canals of Venice on Tuesday, only with college kids on air mattresses instead of docents in gondolas. And while S.C. Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian took the flooding as an opportunity to make some jabs at Gov. Nikki Haley for leaving the state to speak at the GOP Convention, the rest of us out here in the sopping-wet real world were left to wonder: What is the city doing to fix this daggone flooding? ...

CROSS TOWN TRAFIC Shields Gazette

CROSS TOWN TRAFIC Published on Wednesday 7 May 2014 23:06 Ten Second Review You know where you are with a Renault Trafic and that means a lot to LCV operators. The attractive, spacious design, low running costs and general durability stand out and they’re proved to work in the field. In some areas such as cabin quality and refinement, it’s less impressive but Renault’s small panel van continues to prove that good design never goes out of fashion. Background Some vehicles have barely begun to warm-up under the showroom lights before they start to look old. It’s hard to put a finger on precisely what causes this but it can happen to models with bold, forward-looking ...

The Smart Car Would Be Better As A Dune Buggy

The Smart Car Would Be Better As A Dune Buggy The Mercedes-created Smart, for all its tiny charm, isn’t a great car and it sells horribly. I think I have a solution to both problems: turn it into a dune buggy. I remember as a kid, even in my relatively boring central North Carolina neighborhood, there was always a neighbor or two turning an old VW Beetle chassis into a kit car of some sort, most often a dune buggy. Maybe some were actual Meyers Manx kits, but I think most were likely knockoffs. It didn’t really matter, though— they were fun. I remember timorously walking up driveways to see what was going on, irresistibly drawn to the funny wheeled-flying-carpet look of a bare ...

What smart cities can learn from Memphis

What smart cities can learn from Memphis With recent successes in battling urban sprawl, Memphis is demonstrating creative ways to foster neighborhood revitalization. Memphis now has lessons to share with others on urban planning, neighborhood involvement and ‘bootstrapping.’ The story of sprawl in Memphis begins as early as the 1950s and with one of the first suburban shopping centers in the country, Poplar Plaza, built at the edge of the city’s eastern limit. The sprawl continued in earnest throughout the ‘70s, cutting into the surrounding county with the deliberateness and tenacity of a Mississippi River current as developers gobbled up land further and further ...

Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged Short Take Road Test Car Reviews…

Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged A feel-good pill for the Camaro blues. August 2005 BY RON KIINO PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEFFREY G. RUSSELL The fact that the Chevrolet Camaro is gone but not forgotten doesn’t change the fact that it’s still gone. When Chevy pulled the plug on that affordable muscle car after 2002, it left only the Corvette to satisfy the bow-tie brand’s horsepower junkies. The price leap from the Camaro to the Corvette was cavernous. Back in ’02, a Camaro Z28 cost about $23,000, and at almost $42,000, a Corvette listed for nearly double. Thus, horsepower crazies who were cost conscious were forced to get their fix elsewhere. After all, it wasn’t as if ...

Crosstown volleyball figures to be close; Helena Capital both…

Western AA Volleyball Standings Are you ready for some volleyball? It’s the season’s first crosstown match, with Capital High entertaining Helena High in The Bears’ Den, scheduled for 7 p.m. And “entertaining” could be the operative word for the evening, considering how evenly-matched the two teams are on paper. Both clubs are 5-5 overall, although Helena is one-notch ahead in the Western AA standings with a 3-1 mark in league play, sitting second behind conference leader Glacier at 4-0. Capital is tied for third, at 2-2, with Flathead. The host Bruins are led at the net by 6-foot-1 Michaela Dowdy, with 80 kills and 35 blocks. Setter Rayna Pilgeram has passed for 249 assists, ...

Crosstown passenger no spectator sport | Students Rebuild

Crosstown passenger: no spectator sport They say the journey is the destination. If so, then the journey could only be improved with cameos by the few folks that magically recur in your life. For someone who’s built friendships in Haiti based on the periodic week-long visit, being stuck in a car can lead to the most memorable moments — where attention is (almost) undivided on *being* with people. Ronald It’s been years since I’d seen Ronald. I only got to know him during the four visits I’d made to Haiti since 2010, yet somehow we clicked. I was always inquisitive of Haitian culture and politics, and he was always happy to explain things, with a signature ...
