Aren't electric car batteries significantly WORSE for the environment just during the manufacturing process than most cars during a lifetime of use? And then disposing of it..? Plus wouldn't it be worse if everyone had electric cars from our electricity manufacturing? Of course, we need to drop reliance on fossil fuels, i guess.

Though instant, steady torque is dandy as candy.

As an FYI people...

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...488306242.html

U.S. exports of gasoline, diesel and other oil-based fuels are soaring, putting the nation on track to be a net exporter of petroleum products in 2011 for the first time in 62 years.

A combination of booming demand from emerging markets and faltering domestic activity means the U.S. is exporting more fuel than it imports, upending the historical norm.

According to data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Tuesday, the U.S. sent abroad 753.4 million barrels of everything from gasoline to jet fuel in the first nine months of this year, while it imported 689.4 million barrels.

I like the 2nd one more. The first one looks like it has rust on a few spots. Trying to decide if those are ebay or st170s on car 2. Sucks I cant make it out there to look at them. Anyone bored on the detroit side?

2nd one also looks lowered.
I can look at car 2 for you, if its in the lot I'm thinking it is I'll be able to see it after work since there isn't a gate. You want pictures of anything specific?

i bought my girlfriend a camera for Christmas and it arrived in the mail today, omg im jealous of it now. I tested it to make sure it works well. Its a point and shoot but with the large zoom. I cant wait till spring/summertime to take pictures of cars, and maybe go to car event like focus rising or one of the big vw events.

Nothing specifically. Just want an opinion of it. The escort we went and looked at looked mint in the pictures, got there and the rear bumper was cracked and broken by one of the mounting points. The front bumper had cracks, and the interior was cracked with a rust stained footwell. Needless to say we walked away from that. I want to see if those r ebay headlights or the inpros/st170s. Also curious if that is a fart can or just a tip. Looks like it is lowered a bit too, curious if its just lighting or w/e. Look at tire wear, general condition of body + underbody(rust or funkyness).
