Relax, Dad, it's a car for children...
As youngsters around the world fall out of love with driving, one
manufacturer is fighting back.
Only a few years ago environmentalists were worrying about how our
addiction to the car was going to destroy the planet. Scroll forward a few
years and car companies are wringing their hands at how an entire
generation has fallen out of love with the motor vehicle.
This explains why, this week, I was the first person in Britain to test a
concept car built by Toyota called the CamAtte, which translates as "Play
with me". Or rather, my son, Alexander, aged 10, was the first to drive it.
I was in the back seat, with my hand nervously hovering over an emergency
The car, which looks as solid as a Playmobil safari Jeep, is designed for a
child to drive. It has just one proper seat and a mere handful of controls:
an on/off button, a knob that puts the vehicle into reverse or drive, a
steering wheel, an accelerator pedal and a brake pedal. All of these are
controlled by the child.
But there is also a very tiny back seat, into which the parent can squash.
And it is here that you can find the emergency hand-brake and -- if things
are looking as if your offspring is about cause a pile-up -- a circuit
breaker that will shut down the entire vehicle, which is run on
rechargeable lead acid batteries.

Adding a sick cone filter and straight exaust tip to my volvo 940 (MAAAADDDDD!!!)
Stock volvo 940s come with an Exhaust
tip that is shaped like an s. I have no clue why volvo put this on the car
as it is more restrictive then a straight tip, uses more metal then a
straight tip(weight added and cost), it sounds gay and looks even worse. I
was left with no other choice then to remove that thang and put a straight
pipe and tip on which I got at autozone. Well I was there I bought a
specture cone filter because my stock filter was dirty and I heard a cone
filter can give you a slight power increase and the sound better.
This car currently is still slow as shit but has a bumpin sound system with
a DC audio lvl4 12" subwoofer powered by a rockford fosgate t1000-1bdcp and
rockford fosgate mids and highs all being powered by a rockford fosgate
