Naaaa... All the hybrids & such are just too costly. I'm cheap! When I spend a dollar I want get the most for my money. I DO plan on building an electric car, but, it will be a seasonal vehicle.coalnewbie wrote:the only buyer was ..... freddy.

Speaking of which.... is all the talk about a hydrogen car finally done? What a waste of money THAT was!

The company said about two-thirds of Volt customers in July and August leased their vehicles, compared with about 40 percent earlier this year.
So $250 down and $199 for only two years..... C rap, I just paid $2000 for a hydraulic pump for one of the tractors... so the technical question of the week to the group is - can I use this Volt to pull the horse manure cart to save money? At last I think I found a use for one.
