In the early 50s, one of the founders of Velorex was killed while test driving one.

Not exactly the kind of thing you'd want to build an ad campaign around... :lol:

Hey Harry, did you know that there is one of those that was locally owned?

I saw a video of it cruising around downtown on youtube.

I used to work downtown, and drove to work every day (no public transportation for me!). Believe it or not, you actually get used to the traffic and the cabdrivers and the buses and the bicycle messengers and the clueless pedestrians. In all my years driving downtown five days a week, I was never involved in an accident. But I don't think I'd want to try that these days... I'm too used to "easy" suburban driving now. The downtown traffic would probably eat me alive! :lol:

I only drive Downtown for the Auto Show any more, I've taken a train down to go the The Museum of Science and Industry and the cab ride from the train station to there was........not for the faint of heard..... Cab ride back wasn't so bad, both were pricy though, for just a day trip like that it would be cheaper to drive the Jeep out, pay to park it, drive home........and that includes getting lost going into the city or heading back out while paying $4 a gallon for gas!
