Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

Finally, someone's crazy scheme that eefers can actually get behind. My good friend MFS recently had the brilliant idea to create a car co-op for New Yorkers like me--who need a car every once in a while, but can't afford to own a car (or don't want to bother with having sole ownership of one). His plan?
...a member-run non-profit that allows multiple households to share a car or multiple cars. Ideally, this service would include private off-street parking spaces and group insurance to reduce the paperwork and hassle.
First step? Testing the market. Take his short survey and sign up for car co-op updates here.

In other car-related news, apparently Jesus drives a Hummer:

Dude, I love my car. I wouldn't mind being less dependent on it, but I wouldn't give it up. EVER!
