The American love affair with the automobile is dying, or should I say being murdered by the liberal progressives. Between the green movement and the governments intrusion into the manufacture of automobiles, it woun't be long until the car becomes nothing more than a way to get from point A to point B. People that don't love cars will never understand this but people that do love cars know just what I mean.  The automotive aftermarket in America has created millions of jobs and billions of dollars for our economy. This will be greatly missed and very hard to replace. Our government has a way of shooting our horse BEFORE we have a new one to replace it.......the middle class will suffer....as usual.

I grew up with all the cars from the 60s and 70s -back when a guy did not need a college degree and a $50,000 in equipment to work on them (if you had gas,air,and spark - it ran) --and back then they changed something on the body every year - so you could tell what year it was --all the crap these days is so bland -- I have been a car lover for 50 years -- I have a Silverado with a duramax and when I open the hood to work on it  I say a lot of notty words

im in the aftermarket electronics industry, the future I see is a car that accepts your smartphone and utilizes it for audio, communication ,navigation, web and everything inbetween, at is pinnacle, the backup cams,sensors, all radar sensing brake activating ,crash cam, will be so m****duced that even the cheapest base cars electronics systems will be as sophisticated as a 100,000 k auto...and the aftermarket industry would be left to the tire and wheel industry...

The Toy, Pig and VW at an auto show in metro-Detroit, USA...I wonder if those drivers even possess a hint of remorse for what they represent.
