Moonbat Tech: Eco-Friendly Mobile Home

Why should only Americans enjoy mobile homes? Envirosensitive moonbats can have them too — thanks to San Francisco artist Jay Nelson:

golden-gate-mobile-home

The initial pedal-powered design was abandoned due to the difficulty of getting up San Francisco’s hills. Nelson updated his invention with an electric motor that can propel the vehicle at speeds of up to 20 mph. With a range of 10 miles, the “Golden Gate” can go most anywhere in town.

From a marketing standpoint, one shortcoming is that only the most deranged moonbats would be caught dead in this preposterous contraption. But as CAFE standards push mandatory fuel efficiency farther and farther into the realm of the absurd, the Golden Gate may soon be the closest thing to a Winnebago the federal government allows.

Nelson has also designed a moonbat houseboat.

    Those things would never fly in the windy plains states.

    Wait – let me rephrase – those things would fly plumb off in a windy plains state…

  • Mickey Shea

    Ha…thanks for the laughs.

  • mojo

    Ok, look – I can possibly, maybe see why the car has a surfboard on top of it, but the dinghy?

  • IslandLifer

    Looks like he’s headed out to half-moon bay lol!!

  • Jimbo

    Hey wait – that boat looks like a stealth design…F-117… No wonder I almost didn’t see it. Is that cutting edge or what?

  • SNuss

    It would be interesting to see how that handles crash tests. You wouldn’t need a wrecker for the remains, just a broom, and a dustpan.

    I’d love to see him while I’ve driving the silverado turbo diesel. Pull up beside him where the tail pipe is pointed right at his side. Throw is in neutral and rev like a mofo. I’d either blow him over and/or turn his side BLACK! I actually did something similar to a guy in a Prius with his window rolled down. Blew smoke all in his car :)

  • SNuss

    I will give the guy credit for his wood-working skills, even if the concepts are a bit weird. Getting all those angled seams to meet as well as they do is not easily done.

  • Agnostic Conservative

    You will be pointed and laughed at if you drive one of those.

  • Chris

    Meets California 2050 CAFE standards though…

    That electric bike contraption has some real blind spots. I’d hate to destroy it with my 9,000 pound truck if he pulled out into my way.

    Want to bet which one of would be walking away?

  • Bob Roberts

    My comments on this one were a repost. It is pretty amusing – note they apparently aren’t licensing the contraptions but they are using them on public rights of way and such, so by doing so they are probably breaking multiple laws.

  • Bob Roberts

    Oh by the way it looks like he DID register the boat – it has the CF number on it and a registration sticker.

    The other one – well CA requires 2 plates, one on the back and one on the front, so at the very least he’s breaking that law. It is clearly a motor vehicle.

    BR, you think SF progs care about the moonbatmobile’s legality or safety standards? No problem if it makes them feeeeel good…

    cf. Chevy Volt

  • Sam Adams

    Don’t see much in the way of bumpers on that craft. I doubt that it has a windshield that meets safety standards, probably lacks seatbelts, I don’t see turn signals, then there is the issue of crash worthiness.

    I forgot; regulations don’t apply to liberals. Wonder if he will sue Home Depot when he crashes.

    I thought that if he would ever crawl out of his parents basement, he might make a good carpenter.

    Or at least the original, unmodified dinghy had one.
