    EV Thread

    A pair of cringe-worthy videos proving how bad an idea EVs are: The entire purpose of a car is to have the sort of freedom you don't have when relying on public transportation. It makes me thankful for the 5 minutes I spend every couple weeks at a gas pump, cleaning my rear window while...

    You sure are a long way from home, boy ... I mean car.
