That's exactly my point. It's sad.Yeah, I can't see my grandson (now 5) grasping what his grandpa (me) finds so fascinating about the rumble of a Hemi V8. I can just hear him - "You mean it burns gas and you actually have to drive it? What is that loud rumble?" He just won't get it.
I can say I’m doing my best, but he seeks this stuff out on his Kindle on his own. He loves shows that involve cars, trucks, and construction equipment. He loves “muscle cars” (who doesn’t? Lol. He has multiple Challengers and Chargers in Matchbox and Hot Wheels form...they’ve always been favorites, even before he could talk. The boy is a natural...and says he wants to be an engineer. 😀You are bringing himup right!?!!!!!!!!!
Pretty much the latter.I find the level of stupidity and/or willful ignorance in the world seems to have risen to epic proportions. Perhaps it was always so....lol.
You can call them "the good ol' days," and every generation talks about "the good ol' days," but very few people really would go back 50 years. Now, going back 30 years for me would take some adjusting because of the internet, but otherwise, not a whole lot would really change. There is so much more information at your fingertips now, and you couldn't have a conversation on the internet with someone on the other side of the world without getting a Ham Radio license and expensive equipment, making an expensive international phone call, or writing your penpal, which may take a week just to get the letter. We can access information now on a phone just about universally in the developed world that we may not have even known about 30 years ago. On top of that, if you take a trip and forget to change your thermostat, now you just grab your phone.That's exactly my point. It's sad.
The quest to mechanize and automate every aspect of life is going to bite society in the *** one day. The "good ol' days" are called that for a reason.
Definitely cost.Electric cars will need the skills SRT has, too... as long as they still have suspensions and brakes!
I've sometimes wondered why police cars don't get the SRT "comfortable but terrific handling" treatment; instead they get shocks, bushings, and struts seemingly made out of solid steel (with no moving parts, and with coil struts replaced by solid cylinders). Cost?
I bet back in the day there were people saying,”You’ll never see me in one of those mechanical buggies”If there is one thing in life I've learned to "Never say never".
I see the advantages/disadvantages of ICE and EV vehicles. Neither are perfect, but they are better (IMHO) than riding a horse or steam engine.
The "absorption" of SRT into FCA actually occured over a year ago... it's just these idiot writers trying to get clicks and viewers to their websites.SRT (engineering) isn’t going anywhere.
I always hated SRT (moniker) to be honest. In my mind, this is where the R/T badge was supposed to sit.
Making it a brand was idiotic, to say the least. Don’t worry, they’ll be performance cars.
Let's exclude Patrick, who had an honest story that he reported, trying to get ahead of the BS rumors.The "absorption" of SRT into FCA actually occured over a year ago... it's just these idiot writers trying to get clicks and viewers to their websites.
The SRT Engineering staff were employed with FCA, and now Stellantis. Don't worry.
