Bio:

Zachery hacked this oldtimer as his first car. It was due to bad luck or something very bad with this car happening that he almost got roasted on his first job as a technomancer. Zachery madly fell in love with that thing after he recovered from bad brain injuries, even if some people told him, that there are a lot better cars around.

There is something funny about the radio, though, it’s only playing very old oldies from the 1950s on the one matrix webradio connection the aged bord computer is able to receive. The computer has a sweet female voice, that is sadly not compatible with any modern wireless connections, so Zach started to use a simple commlink connected by a standard datajack (luckily that one didn’t change since then) and gets into the ‘head’ of the car by that.

It’s a good feeling driving the old thing and the V8 motor is doing a low bubbling noise running, while it sucks away gas that fast, that the man at the gas station tells you to shut the motor off or he won’t ever get the tank full.

His friends joke about the car, that it’s sucking away the life force of technomancers who drive it. But that’s just one of those stupid urban legends and do nothing to the love of Zach to the beautiful car.

“Do we now rob a bank? Or just the gas station? Look! You can see the fuel gauge move when you drive! Do that roar with that motor again! Jikes! That thing is cool! Can I drive?” – Nebraska
