I joined the Alt-Fuel Movement!

That's right, bitches. After not having a car for one full year, DYY is now the proud owner of an old ass 1980 Mercedes 300TD station wagon that runs on 100% pure vegetable oil!

I named my new car Dolores. Please welcome Dolores with open arms!

I purchased Dolores about a month ago from this Father and Son team in Santa Maria who purchases, re-builds and re-sells diesel Mercedes after converting them to run on veggie oil. These guys are pretty cool.

This is my Beauty Pageant Wave... waving BYE BYE to petroleum and evil bloodsucking oil corporations and HELLO to reuseable waste oil from restaurants!

West Coast for Life, Baby.

This is my gesture of love to drivers who will undoubtedly honk at my Dolores for her slow speed and tempura-smelling exhaust.

yaaaayy! congrats on re-joining the rest of the LA car commuter community AND especially for doing it the responsible way. The ride looks hot, girl and the girl in it - even hotter.

Thank you for thinking I am hot.

Congrats on the new old wheels! So do you go to restaurants to ask for their leftover oil? How fast can your car go?

DYY said...

I have to purchase a home fueling system first, but once I do... you will find me at the alley of a restaurant, scooping up as much oil as possible!

GOOD MOVE! Lola informs me Dolores is "long" for Lola...and means suffering in Spanish. As in, have fun making gas guzzeling motorists SUFFER with your average speed of 45mph.
