There will be a price increase on all cars in the near future due to this.

He's trying to legislate internal combustion vehicles out of existence to push some B.S. pseudo-utopian agenda.

Funny how the government can't seem to shake their dependency on our tax dollars, yet tells us that we'll have to buy high-miler cars to lessen our dependency on oil, regardless of source (which likely means the end of high-performance as we know it). Luckily by then I'll be too old to give three craps about it. Our next generation is totally screwed.

It's not the government. It's the buttheads IN it. Vote 'em ALL out.

For them this is far easier than giving tax credits for research into alternative fuels or expanding drilling. This is the "effort" that they can show to their constituents.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
