Why does everything turn political on this forum? I’m outIf you can afford the $75k+ price tag then who gives a rats a** about what the mpg is or cost per year in addition gas.
Anyways there will be plenty more hybrid and electric vehicles being pushed on us soon by the current US Admin to save the “environment” which in turn will leave a surplus of gas for big block Jeeps, Dodges and Fords to burn. And heck each big $$$$ big block does more then their part for the US economy then two or three small hybrids or electric vehicles. The big blocks provide far more in gas taxes, registration fees and sales taxes. Which all our local and state governments need to fund road and transportation improvements.
California learned this lesson to the tune of over $2 BILLION in LOST gas taxes and registration fees during the big push for small cheap fuel efficient hybrids five or so years ago. Now they add an additional fee to hybrid and electric car registrations to make up for the loss in gas taxes and also hugely increased the registration fees for everyone else. All thanks to small cheap hybrid and electric vehicles!!!!
So I say big blocks are the solution not the problem and will thank everyone that buys one for doing more then their part in providing for a solid tax base for everyone to benefit from.
Don't let it get to you too much. I spend a lot of time on the Corvette C8 forums, Shelby GT500 forums, and now here, and it's common on all forums these days, even the ones that expressly discourage it. It's always been the worst during election years, but more so this year because of a lot people's anxiety & anger about coming changes. Honestly, in my op, this forum is actually the best of the 3.Why does everything turn political on this forum? I’m out
