    New light & medium duty news

    I'm seeing a lot of F-series flatbed tow truck mediums (650 or 750 I'm not sure) with Triple A motor club branding. Also, Gov. of CT just nixed the vote on 2035 EV mandate. Car mfrs. and govts. are slowly abandoning EV's.
  2. It won't happen. Gov. of CT just nixed the vote on a 2035 mandate. Manufacturers and even governments are slowly but surely abandoning these EV's and mandates. Finally some sense!
  3. Did anybody see my take on climate change here? I posted it, took a picture of it, but now it's gone. Why?
  4. I think the car dealers are doing them a favor! These EV's catch fire, can't be insured if you park them in your garage, take too long to charge, aren't reliable in traffic jams and the list goes on! Who wants to be on the maiden voyage of an electric jetliner?! Raise your hand!
  5. All of this is moot, since the industry is drastically cutting back on EV manufacturing.

  7. Replacing a battery costs $12,000. Insurance companies won't insure you if you park the vehicle in your garage. They're catching on fire every day. You can't reduce the carbon footprint of a carbon based planet! Without the greenhouse effect, the average surface temperature of the Earth would be 0 degrees F! With it, it's 59 degrees F. I prefer that! These so-called expert scientists said Pluto was a planet, now it's not. They say milk and eggs are good one year, next year not, third year good again! When there's an impending hurricane, they draw 10 possible paths because they really don't know where it's going! But let's believe them for a moment. They say we've had climate change events (cooling and warming) for millions of years, right? Well there were no cars and industrial plants back then! And they say storms are getting worse. The reason they SEEM worse is because there are more people to be injured and killed and more building to be destroyed. The INTENSITY of the storms is not getting worse!

    New light & medium duty news

    Saturday 9-16-2023, 10 AM EDT from Hartford CT to Exit 73 eastbound I-84: In about 20 miles and a 20 minute time span, I observed around 120 medium duty white Freightliner bucket trucks heading west. I also observed one F750. I also observed about 20 F-series light duty bucket trucks. Where were they coming from or going to is beyond me! I could have understood if they were heading east toward the New England coast while Hurricane Lee was approaching, but they weren't! I was watching a Modern marvels episode about the creation of the Interstate Highway system and caught a peek of some footage of late 50's/early 60's Ford tandem axle Class 8 dump trucks on the job.

    The last three F750's I've seen have had the Power Stroke Diesel emblem. I still haven;t been able to find out if the CT DOT's are PS diesel or gas.

    UAW Demands 46% Pay Hike

    Here we go again. 2008 Part II
  12. Can't they just make an Escape and Edge EV? And why are they even throwing money at EV;s? Ford will soon be so broke, a foreign company will scoop them up and there will be no more Ford. Sounds like sabotage to me. But what can you expect from a company who dropped the Taurus?
