Mostly for the US folks as Tax Day is upon us. Even so, I’m sure everyone can appreciate the sentiment.

It must be spring: the smile of the sun peeking out from a cloud, a sky of spectacular blue, your heart starts to soar like a bird on the wing then you realize… your taxes are due!

•December 28, 2021 • 2 Comments

Electric cars generally have much lower maintenance…generally speaking that is. So what do you do when that expense came to $22,800? Why you’d do the natural thing of course: blow up the car. I mean: what else could you do? Oh and, of course, you record the car’s demise then post it on YouTube.

Skip to the 5:00 min mark if you just want to see the explosion.
