Gayer than Fossy’s Gay Ute

Fossy’s gay ute is pretty gay…but this is way gayer:

The world’s first electric limousine has hit the road in North America – but not in tech-savvy California or downtown New York, but Nashville Tennessee.

A luxury hotel chain in the city known for country music and a laidback lifestyle is claiming to have commissioned the world’s first fully-electric road-legal limo.

Built by a conversion company in Missouri, the Nissan Leaf’s electric power pack and batteries remain intact – but the 200kg of extra metal, glass and leather added to the middle of the car has blunted driving range.

In ideal conditions a regular Nissan Leaf electric hatch can travel 160km between recharges, but the extra weight of the limousine – and its eight occupants, including the driver – would likely cut that in half.

However, the hotel says driving range is not an issue because most journeys are less than 8km.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
