Not so fast…

I’m not sure I like the title because it implies Mazda was not objective (maybe they weren’t), but this conclusion from the study is very telling, to me: “consumers don’t necessarily share the view of many organizations that the internal combustion engine has no role to play in the future of cars.” (I will also add that if anyone thinks autonomous cars are the only way to travel in the future, just read about Air France flight 447 and get back to me.)

In the classic movie Animal House, Dean Wormer tells Flounder, “fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.” I would paraphrase that and tell all of those political ideologues who are so sure they have the right to tell everyone else how to behave, “smug, self-righteous and arrogant is no way to go through life.”

From amcarguide.com a picture of a 1967 Corvette. I will always defend the right of a person to drive one of these.
