Why the "greenie weeines" comment? This is horrible news on many levels, first off being an American (how "American" I have discussed pointing out there parts coming from China, but that's another thread) being kicked in the pants from lack of sales. While Toyota sells kazillians of Prius the volt being a MUCH more practical design hasn't caught on moving us towards saving fuel in America.

You know the funny thing is a lot of hot rodders get all riled up thinking that America is going to make fuel illegal or something turning their hotrods into 3000lb paper weights. It isn't going to happen, not in any of our or our children's or grand children's life times. No, for me, every gallon I save on my daily commute or others commutes I see a gallon I will have for my Gran Sport or next hot rod.
