    Since when do they make good solar panels? The best solar panels I've seen are barely 20% effiecient. Even my hamster can beat that.

    like i said before, just mount a giant windmill to your car. sure it will stick out like a sore thumb and be topheavy, but its way more efficient than solar panels and can realy generate some juice going 70+mph down the road.[/sarcasm]

    IT would be like one of those geek beanies with the propeller on top.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    instead of a carbon fiber hood, a solar panel hood? haha. might be worth seeing if you have a bunch of extra stuff laying around. new VW's can come with a panel for the front window, right? haha/
