    Graham Hill Carshare Baby! Are you a member Waylon? Let's bring back that propaganda which is more important than ever! http://www.carshare.org

    Waylon Lewis I offered to donate a car two years back in return for membership…it was a good car but stick shift, so no go. I just ride my bike, these days!

    But btw if you or a friend would like to write about carsharing on ele, I'll promote the hell out of it!

    Graham Hill done deal!
    I have a interview on Channel 4 at 640 AAA MMMM to talk about Peer-Peer (P2P) carsharing. So if you are not doing anything in the AM.
