What does it take to make things COOL?

Not that this is all that cool, but after about 10 minutes on Photoshop this morning, this lil’ EV from Citroen Peugot (called the VELV) could make a snappy little ride. It was designed for Corprate Fleets and Rental companies, but could sell to individuals if they spent a little time to make them cooler.

The design isn’t bad compared to some EVs, but the addition of minor aesthetics does a lot as people make buying desicisons based on the smallest things.

Put together by a bunch of French doods, the VELV hits a top speed of 68 mph and can travel about 62 miles on a single charge.

Ok, now I’m mad. ‘Cuz this thing needs to be parked in my driveway. Like RIGHT NOW. Ok, I’m calling the French Consulate…

Fireball’s Best EXOTICS of 2011… so far.

Just what is an Exotic Car, anyway? Basically… cars no one thinks they can afford. BUT THEY’RE WRONG! HaHAAAA!!

Anyone can afford an exotic. Now, if you really think about this, you’ll come to the conclusion that there isn’t anything out there that can’t be bought. I mean, do you really want an exotic car? Or, just to DRIVE one?

I mean, imagine the insurance. BING! The fear of someone keying the car. BOING! The tiny dent that ruins the whole exotic car motif. SPLAT! BUT, there are plus,’ too.

The little beanie you get to wear when it’s cold. WOOSH! The front valet parking space at McDonald’s. ZOOM! The fact that some else has to go get the groceries because you spent all your money on the car. Logical… and tasty.

So, …I say go for the beanie. Why not. It’s only money and if you don’t do it, then you’ll be stuck with that BMW or Mercedes that you just bought. All that leather and hi-tech electronics is enough to make one queasy.And, you have to haul all those Senior VPs around, too. And they whine.

WAIT! Here’s another idea. Exotics come in 1/18 scale, too!! You may not be able to drive them, but just about ALL of them will fit in the garage and most people won’t notice. See, I’m lookin’ out for ya. And my ideas are ALWAYS right on target, right?

Feast of the BEST of 2011 …so far. Cha.

Fireball’s Cool Designs of the Week

Interesting items this week. Extremes. As in, this is really cool/God aweful. And so, we play the field of design to see wus up. Technical stuff, I know. But what do you expect from me? Serious behavior?

IN THIS CORNER! WEIGHING IN AT A SHARP STEALTHY WEIGHT OF….

1. THE ASTON MARTIN SYMBIOSIS

AstonMartinSymbiosisSick. Elegantly wrapped design a glassy liquid form. And if I were a bird, I’d target this one in a big way. Imagine the damage a seagull could create on this beast? It’d be like ARTPOO. Nice. Oh, although not too practical in the “I gotta buy more Windex now” category. Time to hit Cosco.

2. THE BMW VISION

BMW Vision

This cool all green vehicular contraption is all over the web now. So? Build it, BMW. Stop teasing us with lame rendos and give us the goods. Pony it up. Step up to the plate. Ball Sackit. Do the Wild Thang. Gimmee some skin. Am I going to far? Oh, just you wait…

3. THE WINNEBAGO CONDONATION SHAGPAD …TURBO.

ChallengedRides1

Saw this absolutely incredible vehicle near one of my hangouts. One of the most amazing designs ever. The form… The shape… The pain. My wife Kathie said, “I wonder if it actually drives, or is it a concept?” Well, in my vast conceptual knowledge of all things car, I said in a tone of total Buddha wisdom, “No way. It’s a total concept, dood.” And then,… it drove away. …I was devastated.

And what did I do? Went and had a latte.

4. THE CITROEN CONCEPT

Purple. Hm. Now that’s a color for sure. Next.

5. CITROEN ECLIPSE

CitroenEclipse

What the HELL is going on at Citroen? Are these guys on drugs? Are they all frikkin’ freaking out, watching “What the Bleep” over and over and over again? I mean, what in Sam’s heck-a-docious is this thing? Oh, I can see them in their freaky psycho-French boardroom right now…

FADE IN:

PIERRE

So, vaht shall vee call dis?

HOHOHO

Vee shall call it di Eclipse, ho, ho, ho…

FIREBALL

Why don’t you guys call it, the WHATEVER? That way, when someone walks up to it and says “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?” …You can say, whatever……dood.

6. THE FIREBALL LIL’ RASCAL

ChallengedRides2

Ok, this is MY entry for the week. My Mother-In-Law drives one, so it’s good enough for me. (She carries her booze in the front, and that’s convenient) You like the flames? I did that myself. I’m just so cReAtive that way… Oh, you think I’m kidding? Well, think about this… No parking problems, all green, comes in 12 flavors, basket up front for booze, dogs, depends or your actual mother-in-law. AM I GETTING MY POINT ACROSS?!!!

7. THE GOTHA

Gotha

I’m sorry, but this is now my official favorite car on the entire planet. Yea, it’s only a model, but c’mon. Do you think a cop would pull you over while driving this? NO WAY? He’d be peeing his pants and hoping you don’t see him! Also, it’s a good conversation peice with the girls, too. “Have you seen my big black stealth machine?”

There you go. Be good out there, or I’m showin’ up at your house driving this. And you better have chocolate.

More on the CITROEN GT CONCEPT…

gtbycitroen_concept_10

This is a really interesting car. So much there to explore, but well worth it. The only thing that would further its interest would be that it’s Zero Emmissions.

Sneeky BEEMERS…

sneekybeemers1

So, there I was, minding my own business when…WHAM! Sneeky Beemers came outta nowhere! Yea, Pacific Coast Highway is a glutton for stealth car activity. These Cloaked Z4’s headed down PCH yesterday like black mambas on a mission.

As I was snapping,.. and driving, I could see the drivers looking at me… watching. Saying “Who the heck is THAT guy?” If they only knew. Why, I’m the dood that’s gonna take a pict of YOUR ride and share it with the world!

…or at least just put it on my blog for YOU doods to check out and say,… Yea, I’ve seen Beemers before. So what.

And that’s the thing. When’s a car company gonna come out with something radical? Like this?
