Yes Rockem that's exactly the point, and no thanks to "social needea" many follow the words of others in disbelief of important issues such as global warming.
I'll repeat ... I love my 63 Pontiac and my 97 Boxster and every other ICE I've had over the years, and our grandchildren will pay dearly for our selfishness.
Exactly Tim, I've always said that car sales are testosterone driven ... the scream of an engine, roar of the exhaust and vibration felt throughout the body ... I get it but it can not continue without repercussions.
My 2003 F150 runs solely on Natural Gas, in fact if it wasn't for the lack of fill stations or available home compressors I'd keep the old girl going as long as I'm alive (and rust doesn't take over). Here in Canada it is not even a choice in fact most are unaware of the existence of NG fueled personal vehicles. Cleanest fuel ever next to electric! Without the by-products of gas or "diseasal", these engines run extremely clean. Again why are we not putting mega research into Hydrogen in a large scale? Make what we have more affordable?
Blasphemy, maybe, but if the world runs out of crude and gas is no longer sold tomorrow, I would convert my '69 Mustang into electric. There may be other alternatives, like biofuel, also.
Good thing for us living today, though, is that, most likely, we won't be running out of gas in our lifetime. There are suggestions about the end of gasoline, not due to lack of crude, but due to environmental, political, or other reasons.
