Claim they're saving the world, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad...
I want a Ferrari. Screw them all.
ban cars that go more than 100? rofl. this is absurd.
what am i going to do with my remaining 3 gears?
most cars year 1990+ are easily capable of going 100+
so then what... ban most of the cars on the road?
hit the hippies with this...

If I was in a debate with the leader of this proposal I would allow him to state all his points, show all his charts, and believe that he got his point across. Then I would ask him to turn to me and I would proceed to kick him in the balls so hard that he nearly hit the ceiling. It would be known from then on as "The Ball Kick Heard 'Round the World for Men with Testicles."
i dont smell bad
and even my mirage is capable of travelling at over 100mph comfortably - it sure as fuck didnt cost me as much as a porsche.
I'd go out on a limb and say that 90% of the cars produced from 1970 - Present can break 100mph.
My 3 clyinder 1 liter '91 metro could break 100. Barely, but it could.
Wow, the barbs on that thing are huge!
even my fucking Insight topped out at 113
that shit is fucking retarded
And if they banned suv's would any of you argue with that?
Most sports cars get worse mpg's than a suv. But the thing about any car that can go above 100mph is stupid.
Al Gore's son recently just got pulled over doing 90mph+ while smoking the green in his Toyota Prius.
He has a history of getting pulled over every few years, going 90mph+ and being caught in possession. Even hippies wouldn't adhere to this rule.
nope ban them all.... at least from the left lane
lifetime, i'm getting 20.4 MPG in the M, and i drive the thing hard.
Fixed... Fixed... fuck you, fixed.
These 4 door pillowy soft Schiessewagens that you people (I'm pointing at the screen) choose to call "Sports cars" are just bulbous luxury cars.
It's amazing how many people rant and piss and moan about how piggy my Supra was but then go bullshit about the 350Z. All of these new cars are denser than Curium and 99% of them are 4 door econo lineups with wings and turbos.
There is no reason, in a post-y2k world, that a CAR. a CAR.. I don't give a shit if it's got a V8 or not... should be getting less than 25 mpg. Fuck, 1968 GTOs get 25 mpg if you pussy them around. The M5 (M for Mist) gets the same gas consumption as a Dodge Durango.
I'm not saying it's your fault, because the M is a beautiful car. But make no mistake - Sports cars are getting SUV mileage and no one seems to notice or care. It's always "down with the SUV!"
This article that I have posted here was the EXACT thing that Jimmy Carter wanted to see in 1977. That's why cars from 1978 to 1993(ish) had the big "55" on the speedo, in red. He wanted to limit all cars to a speed limit LOWER Than 100 mph. To save gas. Japan cars "ping" when you go over 100 kmh.
Finally, you can speed or you can complain about fuel costs. Not both. No one holds a gun to your head and forces you to buy guzzlers.
And this is where I get my Hippy reference. Communist "What's good for all is good for one" beliefs that want these high-end sports car taken off the road for the official reasons of gas consumption, but really is because they want to close the luxury gap (If everyone can't afford a nice car, then no one should). And that's what the real meat of this article is about.
who pissed in Steve's Cheerios this morning?
Close the stupidity gap :shrug:
Because you can't pick up hot girls in an Explorer full of kids. A Ferrari or a Porsche, however...
Classic example of the Blanco / Totalburnout pretzel logic.
Hippies are trying to close the luxury gap under the guise of caring about the environment.
Hippies, by and large, do no more or less about the environment than construction workers, IT programmers or politicians. Everyone does SOMETHING, and everyone fails at something.
Targetting Porsche and Ferraris, but not Rovers and Jaguars is a matter of class, not environmental impact.
Eh, I'm not into em much, but I know high schoolers are.
Porsche has an SUV, too.
