Thanks for the comment. I was so intrigued with the elegant simplicity of what you propose—which at a certain level does seem glaringly obvious—that I wrote a follow-up piece that posits a simple model to try to work out the feasibility, pros & cons, etc. Further comment welcome! One question out of curiosity: where do you stand on the future of personal ownership of vehicles? Are you comfortable with the prospect of its demise, or perhaps even an advocate for the end of personal ownership?

Good thought. The small showroom/two-bay service garage there is a very vintage building as well.
What do you guys think of the new Miata? by pcdoodle in Automotive

I think it's great--looks like a mini Jag. Mazda is crushing it when it comes to design!
