  1. That is an important point. For my wife and me, we aren’t willing to accept that challenge. So, our next vehicle will not be an EV.
  2. Most of my career has been in business-oriented software development (not banking). I usually have a 95% rule. That is, make sure the code can handle 95% of the possible scenarios. The remaining 5% may never occur. Just make sure that the error-handling routines gracefully handle that 5% if they actually occur. Even with this approach, it takes extensive testing. For level 5 autonomous driving, this approach would never work. I can’t imagine how difficult it will be to solve this puzzle. I’m still not sure it will be solved in my lifetime.
  3. My 05 Mustang GT had the two piece plugs. Two of them broke when they were replaced. This was the 3 valve 4.6.
  4. Looks great. My brother ordered his Bronco the last week of December. He just got a VIN with a build date of the week of August 15th.
  5. We can agree to disagree. If I agreed with you, I probably wouldn’t have bought the 2018 model that I currently drive. 😄
  6. What don’t you like about the headlights? The look or the performance?
  7. While I agree with this, I don’t think there is enough money to be made with this approach. So these ideas will never be pushed.
  8. Not sure I agree with the bolded part.. if you have to install the infrastructure for 25% of your parking spots to support charging and provide actual chargers for 10% of the parking spots, that is a significant increase in the electrical demands. I would expect that to be pretty expensive.
  9. Agreed. I have never liked the look of the Crosstour.
  10. I know Ford used Skyliner. I don”t remember Skyline, though.
  11. The number I saw was a little over 109,000 public charging ports. The article I read (dated August 2019) didn’t mention the number of locations, but the number of locations would be significantly less than 109,000. The number of gas pumps would be significantly higher than the 145,000 gas stations. It appears that the author was incorrectly comparing charging ports, not locations, to gas stations. I don’t expect the number of charging locations to match the number of gas stations, but I don’t think it is necessary to have that many charging locations.
  12. Technically, I’m retired now but I’m working part time. Another 12 months and I’ll “probably’ retire for good.

    Stellantis inline 6

    From what I understand, that’s correct. The 240/300 was a bigger engine physically. Side note: In the early 70’s, a few drag racers made cross flow cylinder heads for the 300 based on Cleveland heads.

    I’ve had my current Mustang for 4 years. I’ve changed the ambient lighting probably 4-5 times. The dash lighting has been changed much more than that. 😄
