RONN Scorpion

RONN Scorpion

Strida Folding Bike

Strida Folding Bike
$500-$800  Buy Comment

We like Areaware’s Strida bicycle for what it doesn’t do: it won’t take up a lot of space because it folds away, and it won’t soil your clothes with grease thanks to its clean Kevlar belt.

Volvo Extreme Gravity Car

The Extreme Gravity Car by Volvo takes soap-box derby racing to, well, extremes. For one, they flip the rider on their stomach and face them forward; the racer can hit up to 35 mph.

Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT

Depreciation is a big issue for most used vehicles, but probably not for this Porsche Gemballa Mirage GT Coupe. If your beater can do 0-60 in 3 seconds, give us a call and we’ll deal.
