Check out my new car

Folks I am trading in my car!!!!
I have always wanted something fuel efficient or even electric and I have found it.
Top Speed 7MPH. No more worry about speeding tickets.

Neiman Marcus is getting into the electric car biz by way of Burning Man. Well, sort of.

The 2009 Christmas Book, that repository of gifts for people with more money than sense, features an electric Cupcake Car designed by Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace. We saw these things tooling around Burning Man back in 2004 and loved them, but seeing them in the Neiman Marcus catalog seems so wrong. Charging $25,000 for what is essentially a glorified golf cart is so anti-Burning Man. Or maybe it’s a commentary on what Burning Man has become.

Neiman Marcus calls the Cupcake Cars a “joyful chaos of a gift that is mind-blowing, triple-dog-dare, double-infinity forever cool.” It goes on to suggest that you “make the kids or grandkids literally squeal with joy. Bring it to work and buzz the breakroom. Crash parades! Putter about the ‘hood.”

If the Cupcake Car isn’t your cup of tea, you can get a limited-edition Mission One electric motorcycle for $73,000 or an Icon A5 airplane — complete with training for two people — for $250,000.

The Mission One is a sweeter ride than the Cupcake Car; it recently set a land-speed record for electric motorcycles when it topped 150 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The Cupcake Car, on the other hand, has a top speed of 7 mph.
