What do you think about this car? Should I buy? If my topic does not fit the topic, please move to the desired section. Thank you very much.

How do you intend to carry the bikes? On the roof, inside or on the back? After trying them all, my preference is now to have a tilting carrier on the towball. That way you can go under overhangs, don't have to lift them high and you don't obscure your lights. I've seen Vauxhalls with built in rear racks, how about Renaults?

You can carry an entire family in a tuk tuk, so a cheaper option would be to duct-tape 2 tuk tuks together, then you can put all the family in the front, and an entire stack of servers in the back. Or computers in the front, bikes in the back, family on the roof.

Renault is all well and good, but they look so boring and if you're travelling alone, they take up a lot more space on the road, so I'd recommend something a bit smaller and with a LOT more style:

If you don't need 4 seats, I'd be looking at a van.

Hello friends. Just out of interest, how many posts has BladeBringer made?

@Hawkinspeter - yes, but can you buy your SquirrelMobile for between 8 and 11 Lakh Rupees?

I recommend the Renault Birdy Num Num.

What's the exchange rate with acorns?

I believe tuk tuks can be modded to make them run on branded luncheon meat.

He'd be better off with this - I believe the current owner is looking to sell it for peanuts

Interesting - that does look appealing.

Squirrels shouldn't mess with the chimps...

Yeah, but the chimp is clearly in a different weight category. You'd need about 10 squirrels to make it fair.

Now, a squirrel vs a snake is a closer bout:

That's one agressive little furry tree rat. Snake was happily minding its own business, basking in the sun.
