Thanks for that. We should save the silver, and gold/metallic beige for the robot overlords. It gets confusing. Yesterday I though I was being chased by one of the overlords, and well, it was just Nissan Armada. Its a good thing I didn't see Transformers....
That is perhaps the scariest picture I have ever seen. The third one looks like the one I trapped though.
Careful with that, some dude *cough*"vacationing" in Amsterdam trapped a "goblin" ... turned out it was some poor kid with downs syndrome...
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
I don't think the price creep will keep people from buying new vehicles, but it will surely suppress light truck and SUV sales for some time to come. Right now, many consumers paying attention to the spot price of oil however are scratching their heads. After all, why is oil at it's lowest price in years, yet fuel prices are climbing? Blame station owners for attempting to actually make a living!
Demand is down, so they have to make up for the lower volume with higher prices. History has already shown what the market will actually support there. The only real challenge for them now is to remain price competitive with their peers as they attempt to jack some profit back into the business.
Just voted, "NO WAY". But that's not really true. I am not in the market for a new car right now. My wife and I have six running (more or less) vehicles - three '91 Civics, an '03 Altima, '95 Sonoma and '93 Wrangler. So we've got the "new" car, the fuel misers and the utility. I'm enough of a mechanic to keep the fleet running without much expense.
We are in way too much debt to even think about a new car. Our jobs don't require anything newer, and I'm not excited by what I see on the market.
That said, I'd at least consider the Aptera if it is available outside of California in a few years. The smarter thing to do would be to move closer to work if the housing market ever always me to sell.
