Just an update. Some of you know GM has lent me a fuel cell vehicle for evaluation for two months. Here's two pictures of it. One with our 1980 Citation X-11. Family car since new, 48K original miles) and the other photo with both my Y bodies.

Bruce .... the thorn between the roses! LOL
I know that the 'green' car is the future ... and all of the benefits ..... but, really .... just LOOK at the difference.

Funny analogy :)
The fuel cell car is really pretty nice to drive, to the point where I'm surprised how much I like it. It's really nice for commuting & errands, and almost 300 ft/lbs torque available almost instantly (computers keep everything sane) and the drivetrain can be scaled up & down for power / size as required. No, it won't replace anything I own, but I do see the need for more garage space as I'd love to commute in one of these.

No accounting for some people's taste. Have you recently looked around and wondered why anyone would plunk down hard cash for what they're driving??? I won't name any of the cars so as to not embarrass/shame anyone here--but GEEZ some are bone UGLY!!!

That's what I keep telling myself everytime I look at a Mercedes Benz .... (I can say that .... we own one.) Only one - last one.
