  1. there was a time before when everything that does now work it did not
  2. I have a 2013 C-Max CVT 110,000 miles. My history is from the '60s 396 super sport Chevelle in the '80s mustang GT 5.0 Thunderbird turbo coupe all straight drives always ran hard in the '90s Taurus SHO. We have no issues with the CVT just smooth driving as one of the response if you do hit the gas it doesn't have to change the lower gear to take advantage of the torque we just love ours
  3. https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/tesla-cuts-prices-us-spur-demand-2023-04-07/ The fifth such cut in Tesla's largest market since the start of the year
  4. drove by the local franchise in Charlotte, NC yesterday and it appeared the lot was completely full and a new truck load just pulled in. It appeared to me they are building more than they can sell by this 1 data point.
  5. +++, I swapped out our gas lawn equipment 7 years ago. I gave my son all my gas mowers, trimmers and edgers, cans, sparkplug wrench, and oil cans. Never have to change the oil, clean air filters, or get gas. Just remember to charge the batteries for mowers, trimmers, edgers, and blowers. Easy peasy. Can't wait to get BEV, have a C-Max but even less maintenance with BEV.
  6. I remember reading, maybe 40 years ago about a facility in VA, an old hydroelectric dam, that would pump water up at night to run down during the day to increase the peak for the local grid. Same idea as this
  7. OK, I am aware of that so I was basing this on the current situation, like all the folk who say BEVs won't work for them based on the current situation.?
  8. I will show my ignorance here, where I live in the SE USA I was under the ASSumption? that nighttime electricity would be cheaper/more available at night because most homes and businesses would use less. Is that not true?
  9. the last 15 years have not been much better. I became a Viking fan after going to the local movies on a Saturday morning in the 50s and watching Curt Douglas and Tony Curtis. In the Vikes' 1st year, my dad was a skins fan and the vikes were playing them and I watched a little and dad got mad cause Tarkenton kept running around in the backfield and dad wanted him to stand still so the skins could sack him. Been a tough 60+ years waiting on a SB win.
  10. Decided to begin at the beginning of this thread and got to your post and the video is no longer available to do copyright, dangit
  11. a bell curve would be a good description of the extremes and the middle is where we are today, it is up to the Farleys of the world to lead their companies into the future
  12. Let's hope and pray because the problems with H production, using more electricity to make than the energy provided by said H plus delivery, and associated leaks that may be worse for CC are questionable.
  13. I am a pro-union, and pro-little guy, but I hope they are looking for the best and sometimes the best is not the most money.
  14. Thanks for your thoughts. Out of The Crisis, that is the answer and Farley should be aware...
