First Car

Well I was just riding my bike to and from everywhere, whether it took me two hours or 5. Long rides for sure, but my parent’s decided that I needed a car. They found this maverick sitting in some one’s garage, rarely driven, brown, 302 with a two barrel, 68k miles, interior was nice except where the large man sat when he drove it. Sold for $800.00 and drove it home. Given I was only 15, my parent’s wouldn’t let me drive…on my own, so when I turned 16, we moved over a city and some one had to drive the car, thus I got my license. That car lasted me till i was 19 when I was looking for a new car, when I drove it up to the dealership, they wanted to give me $1500 for it as a trade in for a mustang…needless to say I quickly accepted.

I have an Electric Focus, and all the charge handles/plugs I have seen and used, including the one that comes with the car, are meant to look like a gasoline nozzle. The problem is, that a gasoline nozzle is in a gasoline car for a few minutes, and an electric charging handle/plug is in the car for hours on end. So, this large charging handle/plug is sticking out of the car, almost a foot long, and it gets bumped into, when people pass by the car, including myself when it is dark out.  Also, the first car cover I bought from the Ford dealer in 2012 had no provision for the charge handle, and now the cover is tearing where the handle/plug and cord stick out so far!  Why can't the charging handle/plug have a hinge on it, so it can fold flatter against the car, so that it won't stick out, and be hit by people passing by?
Electric plug in for vehicles that folds flatter.
