    You made it easy for us! My list 89 Bronco Eddie Bauer 98 Grand Prix GT 02 Trans Am 07 G35S sedan 15 Chevy SS 22 Mach E GTPE 69 Mustang Mach 1 While the GTPE is my GOAT daily driver, not many would pick it over the ‘69 to own.

    Hmm yeah, the R1S will be interesting.

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    Yes, but the 40% domestic content part starts in 2023. Either way, they are out.

    This car is the Greatest Of All Time...

    I think it’s wishful thinking. Kinda like how LED lights last 35 years*** ***in controlled lab experiments. BEVs are much more than just the battery pack. Just like a gas powered car is much more than an engine. I’ve been in 200k-300k mile gas cars. Sure the engine still ran…….. but the rest...

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    Maybe? It’s more of a subsidy than a tariff. They are free to build their cars here too if they want the subsidy. Unfortunately because things just plain cost more here, we have to use taxpayer dollars to convince people to do this. Or (in simple macroeconomic terms) it’s way better to not try...

    Anybody have a solution to get rid of the max 5sec power cut off

    Probably talking about the Genesis GV60 performance or the Kia EV6 GT. Both will beat us in the 1/4 mile and are a part of the “Hyundai” umbrella company. (Although Hyundai only owns about a 1/3 of Kia)...

    300-500k? It’s been done. But I wouldn’t expect that many miles to be a “normal” life expectancy. If it was normal, I doubt they’d write a news article about you: https://www.autoevolution.com/news/this-2018-tesla-model-3-passed-the-300000-mile-mark-here-s-what-you-need-to-know-194534.html

    Anybody have a solution to get rid of the max 5sec power cut off

    They didn’t seem to care when the Model YP already did. (3 cars for the YP).

    Steering counterweight?

    WTF?? 😳 And if you actually have to turn, do you have to unclip your leg first? I get the feeling if you got Bluecruise, you would draw eyes on your eyelids so you can take a nap…… Here are some stickers for you: https://thingstobuy.net/fake-awake-sleeping-eye-stickers/

    This car is the Greatest Of All Time...

    Yup, I live in suburban Florida. There are no apexes to divebomb unfortunately. And even the stock exhaust drew too much attention when I drove aggressively in the SS. (It did sound amazing though). The GTPE ends up being even a better “Super Sleeper” because you can floor it all the time and...

    This car is the Greatest Of All Time...

    While I loved my SS…… I don’t miss it at all. GTPE is just so much a better daily driver. Just more fun to drive. And that’s saying a lot. The SS was awesome. It isn’t perfect (5 seconds, more variability in the suspension, and more range), but for an around town daily driver? I can’t think of...

    Fabulous Mach-E GT builds done by Performance 28!

    Isn’t the rear wiper removable? I would think with the rear Louvers you wouldn’t need a rear wiper.

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    US tax credits are “biased against foreign companies?” LOL. So is…….. every tariff ever. Kinda a non-story. Now if it does violate trade agreements, that’s a different story.

    Desirability of glass roofs.

    Doesn’t seem so. The coatings on the roof and the windshield are awesome. My DMG is cooler in direct sunlight in Florida than my old car (white Chevy SS with ceramic tint). Like significantly cooler.

    Why is ‘X’ increasing in iPhone(X) on my screen?

    Probably has to do with how they sync. For one, how can you know which device to connect to if they both have the same name? And if you never named your phone, I guess Apple assumes you don’t care if it’s iphone4 or iPhone28. Not sure if the “why” matters. But at least we figured it out, and...

    Steering counterweight?

    Not sure exactly. But I believe that the difference between Bluecruise and regular lane assist is more than just the eye nanny vs hand nanny.

    Desirability of glass roofs.

    Yeah the heat rejection coatings of the roof keep heat out in the summer and actually keep heat in during the winter. Good new windows in your house have similar coatings. Basically they reduce heat transmission both directions. And in the winter, especially with sunlight, it would help keep...

    Why is ‘X’ increasing in iPhone(X) on my screen?

    Yes, it shows as changed in your phone. But it’s the act of connecting to Bluetooth on a new device that causes the change. See my earlier post about renting an ATV a few weeks ago. I went from iPhone(4) to iPhone(28) as displayed on my phone.

    Desirability of glass roofs.

    It’s worth repeating. It’s between 30 and 50 lbs. Source? 1. People added up the exact weight of all the metal roof parts vs the glass. 2. The weight difference between the glass roof ICE mustang vs metal roof is about 30 lbs. Up high or not, you’ll never notice the difference. Unlike less...

    Anybody have a solution to get rid of the max 5sec power cut off

    That still leaves lots of other things that could be the “problem.” Or, it’s what the people who did a long video after talking to Ford engineers said: Something along the lines of “there aren’t enough temp sensors and they don’t refresh quickly enough to use temp feedback to limit power, so...
