will muscle cars always be allowed to roam the streets?
Has anyone other than myself given any thought to the destiny of our gas-guzzling muscle-cars? It seems that the price of gas will continue to increase, therefore it only seems logical that a point will come when a new fuel will be adopted for the masses. Some may scoff at the idea that this will happen, but how much more can we Americans pay at the pump before the American life-style changes, and more importantly, how will this change in life-style effect the economy both here in the U.S. and also in other countries. Point is that America is a major consumer of goods from around the world. If we begin to not buy the stuff that we don’t need because we have to pay for gas, all of those countries that depend on Amercan consumers will be pushing to fix the problem, which brings us back to the price of gas. There is no way around the fact that if the price of gas continues to go up, there will be a change in how we fuel our cars. When that happens, what will come of the American V8? Will we be able to buy gas at the corner store or will we have to buy it from a specailized dealer? Heck, will we even be able to operate our vehicles on public streets? This is all just food for thought but I believe that we must realize that in the not to distant future, there will be a great change in the way we fuel our transprtation and in that change, the great consideration will be “cost effectiveness” and “effect on the environment”, not “what about the good ol’ boy in the 74 nova”.
