    Electric motors are a lot simpler than those gas engines. There should be quite a lot of hot-rodding in the future.

    However, I do have my happy memories, and the hopeful thought that people are going put the planet first for once.
    The relationships between emissions and global warming, etc. are, of course....debatable. In the major cities, yes, it's a problem.

    Yes, but there was something so primal about strictly mechanical-petrol-burning engines. To this day, nothing has even come close to the awesome sound of three cars:

    *A '69 fastback Mustang owned by a boy I knew. The other mech girls and I would stand around just waiting for him to fire it up so we could listen to it. One turned to me, blurted, "I'd wax that thing with my breasts."

    *My BIL-former-ISTP-bff's Camaro that we Mad Max-ed to ridiculous levels.

    *My INFJ garage buddy and his '67 Camaro. It shook all over when the engine was running. Fast as heck too. I offered my hand in marriage to it.

    Honorable mention to my ISTP Faint Catcher friend and his "War Wagon" junkyard dog Oldsmobile with a drinking problem.

    The Camaros sound pretty hot. I don't like Mustangs a whole lot tho.

    But yes, I know what you mean. It's the growl, from its breathing and moving inside way more than it should. A recognized art. It'll last our lifetimes, I think, in niche markets.

    At that time, I detested Mustangs. Which is what made me feel so dirty liking it so much.

    I hope tech advance can keep the old guard on the road.

    Is it the wanting one, or the getting in and out?

    A few years ago we had a DeLorean around town for a while. Probably sold, since they cost about as much to maintain per year as to buy.

    I want one. Serendipitously, we crashed an open house one Sunday afternoon (in a very pricey part of town - we were dressed up for church and parked our ratty car waaaay down the street). The guy who was selling was really nice, an older gent. Toured us around himself. We came to the den, I saw the DeLorean symbol next to his desk, blurted, "ooooo!" and he was so chuffed that someone else liked DeLoreans that he sent me home with stuff. Turns out he worked on the development of the cars and DeLorean was a close friend, came to his wedding, etc. He had original stuff laying around all over the place.

    What a marvelous coincidence.
