Time for a new thread, I think many of us grew up seeing the various auto mags and the crazy Hot Rods that were totally custom rides from vans, to custom corvettes, etc.

Post your cool find of Custom Ride.

I will start by one that just blew my mind, talk about the perfect Van / Boat Hauler.

      Faraday Future and Lucid Motors, Newest EV Automakers in America!
      Tesla as well as the Detroit, European and Asian auto companies have new competition. Tesla has seen in the last few years, engineers leave that had alternative dreams / plans that conflicted with Musk. As such this fall 2016 we are seeing coming out of the skunk works mode two new EV auto companies based in California is Farady Future who is already big in F1 E-Racing with over 1,400 employees world wide and Lucid Motors. Both companies have broken ground in Arizona for auto production lines. While there is little spec on motors, battery packs, etc. both companies using a rich background of Tesla Engineers clearly seems focused on building new Green auto's compared to waiting for Detroit to figure this out.
      Faraday has their F1 racer which also uses the same skateboard platform of which their concept driving around California is using. You can check out plenty of pictures online of heavily disguised CUV type EV.


      Lucid Motors also has their release pictures which includes their own camo covered auto's.




      For reading interest you can get more details on either of their web sites listed below.

      Apple Car Boom or Bust?
       
      So the question has to be asked of forum members, is this iCar a boom or bust for Apple and is this what the millennial crowd wants? Being that Apples biggest market is the millennial crowd I am wondering if this brick of a self driving electric auto is what they really want.
       
      Steve Jobs originally stated that Apple would work on an iCar and we ended up with this released drawing:

       
      Motor Trend had an exclusive first look at the iCar and this is what they ended up building:

      EV Car Owners Allowed To Use Bus Lanes in UK Cities
       

       
      UK DOT has given the top 8 cities funds to install electric chargers, preferred parking spots and advertise in a bid to encourage citizens to turn in their petrol auto and move to EVs. The biggest benefit is EVs are now allowed to use the dedicated Bus Lanes all over even if they are a single driver.
       
      According to "the guardian" the UK sees this as their solution to meeting the carbon budget and cut the illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide pollution that chokes British cities. England's government give £5,000 to buyers of Electric autos. 
       
      To quote the guardian, "Milton Keynes and Derby will copy similar measures in Norway and allow the cars to drive in miles of bus lanes, while owners in Hackney will be able to plug in at street lights. York drivers will be able to recharge their batteries at a solar-powered park-and-ride and electric car owners in Bristol and Milton Keynes will be allowed to park for free." 
       
      The full Story is found here.
       
      So what do you think, is allowing EVs to use dedicated Bus lanes a smart move? what about some of the other perks various cities mentioned above have done to encourage EV purchases and use? Could this be the start of a push to rid Diesels from the streets and get auto's to alternative fuels?
       
      Sound off on what you think about this!
