I removed it however, I am unable to remove the statement from your quote.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I will delete mine but it is quoted in others replies as well. I wouldn't hold out hope that they will do the same, including your own reply.  ;)

Sorry if I caused any grief. That is not my intention.

No grief at all Shelbydoug. We're cool. You are a complex thinker. I always enjoy your insights and observations.

I know I can be a $#@& disturber sometimes.  Things sometimes fly out of my head and onto paper or a screen in a stream of consciousness sometimes. I should exercise better restraint.  That is the failing on my part.

A complex thinker? That's complex? I suppose it could be a reason that no one knows, WTF I'm talking about? Frankly, sometimes I don't even care what I think, i.e., what my opinion is. Certainly no one else does.  ;)

On my own thoughts, sometimes I'm the first one to think, "what an effin as shole", but I can't shut up my mouth. It goes in rebellion against ANY common sense just to be a contrary.

I blame my parents. They were the ones to mix up the genetic code.

One of the GREAT philosophers of our time said, "life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you'll get." Thank you Forest.


I think it would be appropriate at this moment to remind you that a good attorney never asks a question that he doesn't already have the answer to (supposedly)? Don't ask questions as you did, you will just start a riot that you can't stop.  8)

...and not that you intended but playing Devil's Advocate can get you burned at the stake as a witch.

I MIGHT be able to save you from the stake but; "How do you tell a witch? Simple. Throw them in the water. If they float, they are a witch - BURN THE WITCH! If they drown...they WEREN'T a witch."  ;)

I know all about witches.  I was married to a couple of them.  But that's my own fault for not doing my due diligence.  Young and stupid, I was.  Now I'm just old and stupid, but not stupid in that way anymore.

Going to reply to myself here. Stop hijacking threads. In this instance I hijacked my own. That said, electric Cobra. Not so much.

Not in the true sense but the new owner is somewhat?


As far as the thread being hijacked, sometimes the unexpected side trip is the most fun?

I personally find this topic electrifying and somewhat illuminating

Going to reply to myself here. Stop hijacking threads. In this instance I hijacked my own. That said, electric Cobra. Not so much.
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

With all the Technology out there, why is it that all these new Companies now building Electric Cars only make it where their Cars only go 100 to 150 Miles per Charge instead of the 350 to 450 Miles per Charge like the bigger Companies are doing.  For what they charge for the Car you would think it would go 450 Miles.

best question ever !!!!   A friend just posted that oft repeated meme during snowstorms, you know the one that shows a giant snarl of stuck cars and indicating electric cars would be even worse as they would kill their batteries trying to keep warm, and then be dead in the road blocking traffic and even generator towing saves couldn't get to them.........it was fact checked with that "there is no evidence electric cars fair worse during snow storms....jeezuz i would like to choke the fact checker that wrote that bull chit
