MAKE Asks: Tricked out Rides

MAKE Asks: is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: We all need to get around, right? Whether it’s by car, motorcycle, boat, bicycle, or hovercraft, what have you done to modify your ride to your own specifications?

I once was a pizza delivery driver and spent lots of time in my car, winding through suburban streets. I went crazy with some velcro and attached my phone, GPS, Walkman, and a portable digital four track recorder to my dashboard. I felt like Han Solo in the Millenium Falcon!
