Green mechanics needed
Glenn Reynolds points to a post by Sebastian Blanco asking "Will the green car revolution bring about the end of local mechanics and garages?" There happens to be a solid, straight-shooting mechanic around the corner from us -- and we don't use him, because our hybrid requires specialized equipment and knowledge at the dealer. I think over time the locals will be competitive in this kind of thing, though. And you'll know the green revolution is really taking off when hobbyists start getting into it the way they did with rudimentary computers in the '70s.
