Actually, I think 'Nautilus', which I believe is gender neutral.

I've named some. My first was 2nd hand Beetle and I called it Woggsy. They were called 'Wog's Wagons' by we rednecks at the time. The 2nd was a bronzey/yellow Toyota and I called that Tojo.

But after them the cars were called "the wheels".

Odd I should have thought of naming the scooter really.

I even had a casually adopted cat once that answered to Cat. I told the neighbours it was spelled Khat. ..but it really wasn't, I was never a cat person, it just hung around and I just fed it, no deep relationship developed.

The wife likes to name her vehicles.

I convinced her to name her Jeep, "Eugene".

Had to happen.  'Muscle' mobility scooters.

They look more Steampunk than 'Predator'  but  .. cool .. or fool??

Damn!
15K for that? 500 watts is only 3/4 HP.

Heavily Steampunk.

Fit that sucker on the right with an Oerlikon and a V8 and I'll buy one.

Right?

If the souped-up mobility scooter only offers 2/3 Hp, for 15K, wtf...

Could you even do a spin out with that rig?
Avoid the 8 move k turn?
Just to get back in the garage without hitting stuff?

For 15 g's, i expect to fly.

Or at least burn a righteous path of geriatric rubber.

Perhaps Di hasn't heard these songs in a while?

(The Little old Lady from Pasadena; Jan and Dean. Go, Granny, go! That's the spirit of the song.)

Or this one; an all time great, the beach Boys: I get around.

hopefully Di is feeling me.

A mobility scooter has to do decent wheelies.


(pm me for fashion tips. When you pop a wheelie on your mobility scooter, in front of your neighbor's garage, you don't want to wear floral patterns.)
