I don't have room nor the money... so....


If anything happens to my 307, I'd probably just put an LT1 in its place and call it a day.

few things in automotive history are as recent as one would think


You mean DOHC is not latest and greatest?

Boy, the red tide rises in this thread, haha. Feels good to be right though, even if it took a while to finally sputter and die a well-deserved death. *choke*choke*gasp* :)

Internal combustion FTW, BTW. :P

Yeah you're trolling.

Unless you actually hate innovation and jobs. Then you hate America.

You don't hate America, do you?

Why do you so hate the idea of freedom of choice in electric vehicles?


Some people fear change...

You'll have to give up a lot of freedom of mobility to own such a dorkmobile. Why punish yourself?

In case you still didn't know after the five billion times it's been said, electric cars like the Volt and Fiskers have no limits to their mobility whatsoever.

Besides, my mobility is already severly limited by my budget. If anything an electric car would only increase my mobility by reducing my fuel costs.

That is why a Prius C would be perfect for you at some point in the future, if you aspire to go new. You like quirky cars with personality, the C looks like a fun pup compared to its deathly beige older brother. The base model comes with wheel covers you can take off and ride with black steelies. And it has a particular disdain for gasoline, you know, that evil fluid that built America, land that I love.

It's also a cheapo pile of dung. Toyota is scraping a new low in build quality on that one.

Remember, when you're "green", it's not the car, it's the IDEAR of the car.

...What?

Anyway, the Prius C does nothing for me. I'd much rather have a Volt. Or anything else interesting the Big 3 might offer in the future. The Fiskers are aspirational, but I don't foresee myself being able to afford something like that.

Why don't you grab a Volt, then? Otherwise, you are hoping for a technology to supplant a large percentage of the entire automotive fleet. Unfortunately, its not all that viable yet. Buy a Volt, while they are still availble, and don't expect them to be forced onto everybody... I'm not forcing you to buy a gasoline powered V8... stop advocating that the government waste my taxpaying money to try to force others into electrics.
