Oops! A mis-type if ever there was one!

Yeah, it's right side up on Flickr & my phone. BF won't render it like everywhere else.

What 15 year-old wouldn't want an e-bike? It might be cool to get her one as a cool gift regardless of timing with the new program or not. It'd probably save her Mom a bunch of obligation as well.

I think if it were me, the e-bike option is what I'd do.

And, yes, Mom would likely be driving her most of the time. But there could be days when that isn't possible or practical, so one must be prepared for the inevitable.
Even more reason not to go to the trouble and expense of getting a car on the road if it will only be used occasionally for 5 weeks.

Sounds like you are doing it for other reasons and the niece's visit is just a prompt to get you working on stuff you had been intending to do anyway.

Don't look at me, I had a bike and wanted a girlfriend and mag wheels on a bad car. My dad had a '70 Ford pickup with a 302 automatic, non-towing package and spoker wheels or whatever you call the standard rims with triangles pressed out to look like big spokes and striping around the edge. Two tone, the top was dark blue like Ford engine blue and some native American style woven blanket for a bench seat cover.

My dad drove awesome crap.

Of course by the time I was 15 he drove a 1978 Chevy C-10, plain Jane, inline six, got the jobs done.
