The search goes on by auto manufacturers for a car powered by electricity. The latest effort, by Chevrolet, is an evolutionary step: Part gasoline engine, part electric motor. However, it is different than the hybrid combos that have been on the road for several years.

    Thirty-five years ago, I bought my wife a Chivy compact so she could learn to drive using it. I new if she totalled it, I wouldn’t get mad–she didn’t, then I did get mad.


    Remember the Corvair, the1961-63 alluminum V-8, the Vega, the Cadallac 4-6-8 engine, the 1984 Cad alluminum V-8 ? What GM wants you to forget is thier 50mpg GEO which they could still produce if they wanted to.


    This is just another farse from the global warming corporate communinty with the intent to plunder your wallet. The game plan is to create a new environmental product market and dump a Carbon tax on you. If you do not beleive me, just call your Knox County city and county governments and ask them if they have plans for implimenting a carbon tax. Al Gore’s United Nations big lie has fallen flat on it’s face. This is not a man made item. We’ve had these warming cycles since the world began. Their “proof” is flawed. Recently, in San Luis Obispo County California, it was found that outside temperature measuring devices were purposesly set up in locations that would provide abnormally high air temperatures. Anyone who buys this GM boondoggle is just plain stupid.
