Theres a used chademo on ebay right now for $2,500, it would be a toy more than anything.
I'm waiting for a market crash so I'm trying to save up as much cash and off load as much credit utilization as possible.

I don't really give much weight to the POTUS affecting the economy much; though I suppose it affects markets as much as any single person could. That said, I don't think the markets will do as well as they could once they get Bern'ed. I'll probably save my expensive projects for the next downturn when skilled laborers are hungry for work.

It's unclear to me if used vehicles get cheaper in a down economy because less new ones get purchased. Seems the supply of used tightens, but everyone needs a vehicle. Perhaps used prices go up then.

Just the possibility of socialist sanders or chief spreading bull winning, who both say they want a 42% federal sales tax.

The entities that covered the grant were not using money that was donated to them, but money extracted unwillingly from the public. And it went to a private business, an individual.

not to cater to a very small/specific demographic that tends to be more well off than others. That fits the description of anti-progressive...
This reminds me of all the government guaranteed loans given to developers to build strip malls that stay half empty or less then get condemned.

One more famous local case the developer hasn’t done as well as expected, hasn’t paid property taxes in years and owes $10m to the town.

No one builds retail anymore with their own money.

Oil Pan, how many electric cars are in your part of New Mexico? I see some Teslas on the road in Show Low, but never parked. They don't stop in the entire area?

Saw several stories last summer about this... but not really a lot since then.
