    It is now. It tests the concept of government-mandated design, a design that was the result of a planning process that had originally been intended to design a fuel cell vehicle.

    That's the best you can do? Blame the messenger?

    If the messenger distorts the story - it's not trivial.

    Is he allowed to drive vehicles that aren't armored?

    Nope. That's it. The presidential car is an armored SUV.

    And, poof. Not that you likely care but all credibility your posts might have once garnered for me is now gone. Your views are your own to hold, but that's me checking out of this thread forevermore.

    The first article is on a temporary shut down of the factory line and the second hardly has "firesale" prices listed for Buy It Now listings.

    Might want to try more logic and less sensationalism - that's why I tune out PETA, even though I sympathize with a lot of their agenda on treating animals better.

    My next car probably will not be a Chevy Volt, but I'm glad GM is working on that rather than the Hummer five years ago. Hummer sales were also influenced by the government with that ridiculous tax write off as "business vehicles."

    The Volt is a friggen joke.

    But I did drive a new Vette, all 430 hp, 6MT with magnetic suspension to Nashville and back last week and got 38 mpg on reg. pure gas unleaded. No fas or anything extreme. Just 65 mph on the foot.

    Think I'm liking a Grand Sport. :)

    I wish 38 MPG made me happy. Maybe in 1980 it did.
