  2. I don't know how I became part this fray, but your outburst is nonsensical. I don't dislike you and I never left... I simply haven't found much to comment about on this tread lately exactly because of the prevalence of this kind of diatribe. My position on EV is very simple and it hasn't changed. (1) EVs do not currently make economic sense because of the cost of batteries exceeds the cost of fuel over the lifetime of the battery (and often times that of the vehicle). That is why they need subsidizes and tax bates to survive on the market. (2) EVs also do not make convenience se

  4. That is one of the main reasons why I moved to a small town a couple of months ago (would have been back in the Spring but COVID slowed the renovation on my home). It's a town of just over 15,000 yet less than an hour to at least four mid-size cities like Raleigh and Greensboro. Nice round-a-bout around the courthouse kind of town that has seen a nice revival over the last few years. Some nice Home-Brew bars and independent coffee shops and a local hardware store that I frequent often. It's not perfect, by any means, but it is a FAAAAR cry from the previous seven years in Phoenix metro. Strip

  9. I am confused as Vancouver Island here which is a normal basic cost ferry ride from the US or from Vancouver city in British Columbia has a population of 870,000 plus citizens. There is a national park there and on the north end of the island plenty of cool camping stuff, hikes, water falls etc. to see. Empress Hotel Basic freeway system, but plenty of dirt roads for off roading. If one wants to get away from it all, then the northern tip of the island is worth visiting to camp. Best park if your wanting a good day trip is Butchart Gardens. They have the

  10. There's a Sierra in transit listed @ $48.1K, tho it's 180 miles from me. I sat in a '19 Silverado last year... but I haven't driven one of these yet... and I'd REALLY like to test a TD out. I looked at Ram's site a few times, but they are more expensive relative to GMs. Ford ties the diesel into elevated packages/trims I don't need.

  12. Wagon of the brain now. Saw this on Craigslist. 2007 SRT-8 with only 67K miles on it and in pristine condition. The down side, of course, was the $22K asking price but still, dark blue on a SRT-8 is hard to find. Only 140 of those in that color.

  17. I kinda go a big both ways here. I do believe that the earth goes in cycles (Hot, cold, etc) and that it is going to change regardless of what we do. But, I also feel we can speed up that change by adding more Co2 and other chemicals to the air/earth/sea.... And we need to find better ways to power these things for the future as well. Can’t simply use nuclear and coal forever. We need to make solar, wind and even sea powered ways to get energy for our car and home. I might be the minority, but I believe that both EV and ICE powered cars can live in harmony, and that both can be aroun

  18. A lot of the Anti-EVers like to say "Well, your EV is powered by coal! Coal is what is used to generate your electricity!" Well... that's become less and less true. It's time to start retiring that line. According to the Energy Information Administration - U.S. Renewable Sources Generate More Electricity Than Either Coal or Nuclear and Begin to Close the Gap with Natural Gas For the period January - September, solar-generated electricity – including distributed solar - expanded by 22.1% (compared to the same period in 2019) and provided more than 3.4% of the nation’s tot

  19. I agree with most of this, however, there are some people who are against progress of any sort and just hate it to hate it. They hold the view that "It won't work for me today, so that means it will NEVER WORK FOR ANYONE EVER!". Tesla was a game changer for EVs. It made EVs substantially more accessible to more people, not just in cost, but in range. Before Tesla, most EVs topped out at 120 miles or 150miles max. It doesn't matter if you were Jeff Bezos, that is a deficit of utility that those EVs could not overcome. Telsa coming out with 250, 300, 350, 400 mile ranges meant that sudden

  20. Ummm @oldshurst442... what did I do to get drawn into this fight lol? Long time my friend.. but after sifting thru some of this.. I am still lost as to why @ocnblu is so in love with ICES that he still finds the need to talk $h! about the EV movement. INSANITY.. Propulsion that moves us around faster and more efficiently and if I rev the engine/motor/ up with a kid standing behind it... he won't get carbon monoxide poisoning and die? U'd think NO BRAINER. OCNBLU.. U must work for an oil company up there in PA. Rest assured.. I'm trying to hold out for either that Hummer EV or

  23. In all seriousness that is the problem a lot of legacy car makers have. EVs seem better as EVs from the ground up. Converted gassers as production vehicles don't seem to work as well. Mini didn't sell a lot of EV Cooper's nor was the E Golf a particularly good car.

  24. Always liked the Aerobirds compared to the blocky 80-82 Boxbirds they replaced. Oddly, the '83-84 still had a horizontal dash very similar to the '80-82. After having Cougars in the early-mid 70s, my Mom had a '77 Thunderbird, then an '80, '83, '87 and lastly a '90, so I grew up around them, along w/ Lincolns and other Mercury products.

  25. NAPA Gold (made by Wix) is $18. I had bought a case of them some years ago; then I think they were $7 or $9 ea, but I only have one left. Last time I bought a 3-gal case of Rotella-T @ Costco- it was $30. That’s a $48 oil change. It takes me less time to change my own oil than schedule/ drop off/ wait/ go pick up than for me to do it myself at my whim in my driveway. Disposal is thru the county- once every couple years I ride about 2 miles and drop off all hazard chems I may have accumulated. Easy-peasy.

  27. Seems a price war is on for the ubber 6 figures luxury SUV products as Mercedes-Benz has rolled out their latest 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 Opulence embraced SUV. Undercutting Bentley Bentayga, Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiogrphy and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan with a starting price of only $161,550. This SUV maxes out at $200,000 so if your looking for the monogrammed floor mats, then look to Bently or Rools-Royce. 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 first drive review: Opulence embraced - Roadshow (cnet.com)

  28. GM DID Look at investing in Rivian but they wanted Rivian to themselves and wanted Rivian to dump Ford and Amazon which I do not agree with. Rivian CEO is wanting the tech to many companies and so GM choose to stick with their own platform. It will be interesting to see which way Ford goes as they will have two platforms, Rivian for a Truck and possibly future SUV and then the Mach E platform. Exciting times we live in.

  30. Google brings up many renderings...could be nice. The red one appears to be the current Charger front stuck on the old Magnum body, seen pics of several of these that have been done in 1:1, even seen a couple w/ Challenger fronts. The 2nd rendering is a wagon w/ the current Charger lower bodysides..

  45. I've gotten pretty good mileage out of my two EcoBoosts. I have a pretty light foot though so I expect to do a little better than the ratings. I have also noticed with both of them that once you hit about 70mph, the fuel economy starts to drop quite significantly compared to n/a vehicles I've owned. My AWD 2.3T MKC is rated at 18/23 and my lifetime average over the 19,094 miles I've had it has been 23.2mpg. My AWD 2.0T Escape was rated at 21/28 and I averaged 24.7mpg over 24,611 miles.
