I'm sure that's coming but you won't be seeing one in any of my cars! I love the rumble of an American V8 through Flowmaster 40's waaaay too much!

Like it or not, it is coming. It's OK for my golf cart but I too need to hear that V8 music. The word is that in BC and maybe all Canada will be cutting off fossil fuel vehicle sales as of 2035
I think my biggest objection to electric vehicles is - why do they have to look weird? Or maybe I'm just stuck in the past and just don't like the modern plastic futuremobile Transformer look.....

I'd like to build one so I could park it in a prominent place and blow it up.

GM and Hot Rod Magazine just converted a well-known 57 Chevy, Project X, to electric and unveiled it at SEMA this week.

https://www.motortrend.com/features/...ev-conversion/

I don't plan to EV convert any of my stuff or build one, but it's cool that they're making it accessible. I like that GM is sending the message they're still in the internal combustion performance game with engines like the ZZ632 crate engine and LT6 in the new Z06 Corvette.

I couldn't imagine how something like Hot Rod Power Tour could remain functioning with thousands of cars travelling the same route if even 1/4 of those cars were electric and were looking for charging.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

That's a sweet looking Falcon! The no noise thing is weird, I was at the end of my driveway on Sunday and a Tesla SUV drove by. The noise of the tires was all you heard.

When they talk about cutting off Fossil Fuel vehicle sales, I just think of more remote areas (like in northern Alberta and BC) where people either farm or are so remote that electric vehicles seem a lot less feasible, especially in winter conditions.

At least something like a hybrid with an onboard gas engine used as a generator (EX: Chevy Volt) is a little bit more adaptable to not being able to charge.
