Son of a bitch! I did not realize I was posting a pic of an actual electric car. It's wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. I want the burble and the spitting and the rumbling, and the smell of gasoline. Damn it. I posted a pic of a damned electric E-Type. Appropriate for the thread I guess, but personally, I can't stand electric cars; I don't care if they're fast. You lose a lot of the emotive passion for cars with me. Damn. I posted a pic of an electric E-Type. I am going to hang my head in shame now.
Dino, you want an electric V-Tail?
Don't worry. There are companies that specialize in the installation of a Chevrolet drive train. This makes it the perfect vehicle.
I would rather cut off my arm than live under tyranny!
We now have a Tesla Roadster in space. I wonder how it will fare up there? Perhaps it can be recovered someday and examined. If it starts up again it will replace the old VW Beetle as the Earth's most durable.
My concern about Telsa is it has been funded by the Government, would not be here as it would go away as the last Administration did with the Solar companies, the taxpayers for the most part cannot afford these vechilies, so why the big help. Musk is a very smart man, but to me he's flighty, jumping from one project to another. As one other poster said repairs take time, but that doesn't worry me as I cannot afford one, yet my taxes go to this corporation , yes I pay taxes, minuimn distribution on my IRA and I can tell you it's a good sum every year.
Darn that corporate welfare. It's not that I don't get it, I just don't agree with it.
I had a few Pontiac Fiero’s that became associated with becoming fire hazards in a post Nader world. I ran into a GE engineer that worked at the Mesa proving grounds in Arizona, and he told me that before the bean counters pulled the plug, they had already created some really smoking concept versions, with Supercharged V-8’s and racing transmissions. Sadly, the die was already cast, and the flaming reputation was in the public consciousness resulting in lagging sales.
My V-6 could smoke the tires, and straightened out the curves... a lot of fun.
