They do say the 2CV is incredibly easy to maintain, if that matters.
Sort of a cult car.

Re: The Car Thread

A $300 vette. Nice! Even has the top! With so many american car people on here, figured everyone got it, but if you didn't, the blue car with the Lotus, is the Lister Corvette. Probably a very early year too. The black car is a 1957 Dual Ghia. Here's a favorite view of mine. Should be an easy one. h...

Re: The Car Thread

Nice car, Magnum. I remember a pair of small tanks out there, that could do maneuvers with each other. V cool. Here's the best part of california culture. Going canyon carving after a race. Not only is it real, it's a daily driver. https://scontent-a-lax.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/q71/s720x720/142662...

Re: Can I leave a physical ticket at will call?

They would not hold hard tickets that were not will call this year.
This resulted in people with hard tickets waiting for them, being D lotted with the hordes trying to buy a ticket with no shot at all.

I can't swear to it, but I think they used to do this.

Re: Amperage draw before and after DC to AC inverter

Yes, I was just trying to make it clearer for people that find it so baffling. It's all the same thing. Amperage matters when the voltage is lowered. It's simply an amperage comparison as long as voltage doesn't change. Important thing is to realize that sizes for 120 volt will not work for the same...
