    : I was kidding, they have to be one of the most over the top vehicles around. When I was in LA 3 years ago. I was told by some LA friends that they saw Arnie driving around in one.

    [blue] I believe he has 2 Hammers - fully unloaded real military Hammer and fully loaded "full time mom's" Hammer[/blue]
    : I know what car you like. A good old Russian classic. The Lada mk1.

    [blue]Now I am 100% sure, you ARE kidding[/blue]

    : : : 51,000 * 45 ~~ 22,95,000 My kinda money.
    : : : Nice :-)

    : : : I don't own a car and doesn't hope to in the near future .

    : : [blue]I think I know why you do not have it but I would say - lucky you[/blue]
    : [red]Not that lucky,I guess[/red]
    [blue]When I lived in the former USSR, I did not have car I believe because of the same reason why you do not have it now. So I did not have problem with parking, traffic, insuranse(!!!!) and other car-called-headacke. I dreamed about car but I was not that unhappy. Moving to the US made me happy a lot but having car here did not make me more happy. Beleive me. People from the US would not able to understand it but people like us (of course I do not know that much about you and just guessing about reason why you do not have car) will. But I think this a subject for different discussion [/blue]


  • : I didn't say they were WAY more expensive, just more expensive, which they are. If you own them long enough you'll offset that initial cost in other savings, but right now I can't afford to buy anything over 14K
    :
    [blue]I agree that price is not good. I meant that automakers can reduce price for that kind of cars but they want to paid off their expensive for researches. That's why curernt price is higher that price for regular cars. There is one more negative thing about that kind of cars. It uses electricity as source for engine when rpm are low. Then gasoline engine takes over. That's why hibrid cars are good on gasoline on city road. But on highway its electrical engeene is not good - not power enough. So it takes hibrid cars too much time to get high speed. [/blue]

    :In the long run, investment in fuel cells and other alternatives will be the way to go, but since when have American businesses been known for thinking long-term?
    : : [blue] I am not that good in history/analyzis of American economy and do not have answer on this question. But I think too long-term thinking in economy is not good either. Example, Soviet long-term planing in economy ... [/blue]
    :
    : Well, Sovietism is based on faulty premises to begin with ;-)
    :
    : One thing I learned in my University accounting class was that most American businesses have for a long time focused on maintaining a growing stock price. Most people will judge a company's success on their stock price going up up up. That, however, leads to all manner of problems, not the least of which is less willingness to spend a lot of capital on long-term improvement.

  • : Kind of dreamy stuff ? Give me a link .i would like to read it.
    : Leaving for the day now.almost 9 pm here.

    Nah, they were invented like a hundred years ago. At least the technology behind them was. Fuel cells have been used by NASA for decades. The main problem is they are rather bulky. The other problem is that current storage capacity for hydrogen on an automobile is very limited.

    Just look up hydrogen fuel cells. I'm sure Google has plenty of links.
