    But wait, there’s more, fake mufflers with speakers to make any electric car sound like a V8. Turn your eDart into a Hemi eDart with a flick of a switch.

      You push it, just like I did when I ran out of gas once. :D

      Where did you find that about California requiring retrofitting emission compliant engines?

      We could go back to the horse and buggy days, BUT no, there is the polluting gas from horse farts.
      But..... Now, the Amish drive the buggy down the road, horse takes a dump, the guy gets out and scoops up the horse chit, they take it home and fertilize the garden, they take veggies to town and sell it to you tree huggers as organic. Pretty cool huh!? hint" they make their own clothes too.

        Electric cars are the elephant in the room that no one can see because it is occupying so much of their field of view. Everybody knows that when you convert one form of energy to another, there is a loss of efficiency; nothing comes from nothing and nunuvit is free. We the non-electric car owners will be forced to subsidize those who do, because the true cost of ownership and specifically, maintenance, will be otherwise so high, that only the rich would be able to buy into, it. And you know rich people, they like to multiply their riches, mostly by stealing from the poorer.

            Uh... NO! I will not take a 4 stroke dirt bike.

            To keep this relevant to the original topic, I recognize the work that went into converting that dart to electric. Ain't my thing. I kinda like the smell of my mopar when I'm messing with the engine in the driveway. I kinda like the sound of my mopar when I'm on the throttle. I kinda like the chaos and FEAR that the threat of my small block mopar instills in my enemies.

            What is good in life?

            and to hear the lamentations of their rice and battery powered women!

              I see what you did there.

              Are you saying that everyone has to agree? You know, if I don't like someone, I'm free to put them on ignore. Trying to shame people into silence is not good.

              So what if 72 and YR get excited in their arguments, does that invalidate any of their points or the data that they provide? Why do you assume that people here besides yourself are unable to handle any prickly discussion? Stop trying to protect me from harsh language and mean words. I'm pretty sure I can handle it. It's one thing when it's just a few posts are going back and forth, and I can recognize that it's another matter when a discussion gets nasty and never-ending. Often in that case, it's someone baiting another into continued argument.

              I appreciate that the above two mentioned guys BOTH presented good information, and I am grateful for that.

              Why don't you ask yourself who is in the wrong? The prickly grumpy old guy with back pain, or the passive aggressive (for example, this comes from my own personal "lived experience,") ex-wife who just can't stop poking and poking and poking to get a reaction? It's NEVER EVER the constantly passive-aggressive cheating whore who gets off on baiting and tormenting others, that is responsible. I get it, the grumpy guy automatically loses with many folks.

              I don't care how an argument goes as long as GOOD DATA is being presented. Show me where I am wrong, or sell me on your idea. But, don't lie, or try to sugarcoat bullshit and ignore passive aggressive shit-disturbers.

                I thought it would be more appropriate in the n&p section with the comments that were being made. Like if someone put a for sale ad in the middle of the thread. Really not trying to silence anyone in fact I encourage them to have it out in n&p section. I don't really know enough about how this forum works to know if n&p is where those comments belong so probably should have just kept my mouth shut. Sorry if I offended someone.

                  His arguments are full of conspiracy and incorrect facts like crude oil is a renewable source of energy. Bizarre.

                    It seems there's a lot of misinformation and plain ignoring of facts based on how people feel about how the world is changing.
                    When discussing science and the facts around the upcoming progression of light weight batteries and capacitors all of a sudden a conspiratorial and blanketing of communism fear and population control rears its head. For those of us not in the USA we understand that socialism is not communism, green energy is not communism but anything that goes against the traditional held belief of what the USA has been is considered communism by some US citizens.
                    Just because you call something a name doesn't make it so. And therefore when you debate facts with conspiracy against evidence your argument falls apart. And yes, traditional fuels are not fossil fuels but come from biomass which is plankton, plants and algae that are about 300 million years old and it is not a renewable resource no matter how much you scream it. Science says no. This is not about facts, it's about how people feel. And it seems the majority of people here feel that their world is changing without their permission. You can't stop progress.

                      Your argument is invalid. The Amish reject progress so you cant equate it to electric cars.

                          Uhhhh, then why does a capped well after 40 or 50 years produce 70 or so percent of the oil it did for its first drilling.

                          When one can’t refute a fact they call it a “conspiracy theory”. Sounds like you are young enough to have not lived through the “peak oil” lie, global cooling or any other bullshit science you must believe.

                            Well see, you’d be DEAD WRONG. Again. Socialism IS communism. It’s the exact same thing. The difference is how you came under the control of that Godless, despicable Bolshevik system.

                            You should post less and study more.
