I’m going to try out Silvercar this afternoon when visit my family for the weekend. It’s some fancy rental concept that has a fleet entirely composed of silver Audi A4s. I don’t care about the car so much (I’m quite fond of my Civic) as I do about other features like an included navigation system and a simple $5 fee for them to fill up the tank at market rates. Anyway, they offered me a free rental (plus $20 in taxes) so it should be interesting to try and report back.
But my real dream rental car is not an Audi A4. It’s this car made entirely of Lego bricks. Just ask my dad — I have four giant boxes of Legos at his house that he has been trying to get off his hands for years. Maybe he just hasn’t bought me enough Legos, because then I could build my own Lego car and motor down the Golden Gate Bridge at 18 mph. (HT to Slashdot)
