I like cars.  Always have.  Here is  some car news:

Pontiac's final model wraps up production
The Pontiac Solstice coupe is assured a place in automotive history as Pontiac's last new model, and the stylish roadster could become something of a collector's item. Pontiac is being phased out by General Motors, its parent, and will be gone in 2010. The Solstice's total production of 1,100 ended in July. All of the coupes will have sequential ID numbers, so owners will know exactly which car of the 1,100 they have.

House considers funding green vehicle research
The House was expected to vote Wednesday on a bill that could allow the Energy Department to spend up to $550 million a year to conduct advanced technology vehicle and component part research and development. Aides said it could lead Congress to increase funding for vehicle research later this year by about $200 million annually.

Mostly, I like old trucks

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
