You were a pioneer to this forum. I was rather late in comparison, though I'm sure I had read posts on here prior to signing up.

I used to spend all my forum time in specific auto forums and slickdeals.net /podium.

A decade from now, what do you think will be your biggest automotive change?

I will be car shopping at one of the last three remaining auto manufacturer's dealership.

Happy birthday Ecomodder!

Big thanks to all who come here and contribute. Its such a great place because of you guys. Darin and I really appreciate it.

In 10 years.... I'll definitely be driving an EV. Not sure what though. I'll probably go through a half dozen vehicles on the way too hah.

In 10 years I hope to still be driving my 2008 smart if gas is still available at reasonable prices, if not I might turn it into a trailer and pull it with whatever is available at the time . Chumly

I'm still driving a 2000 Insight with 270K. Regrettably I blew the engine in my other 2000 Insight with only 148K. I still have a 1999 Metro as a backup.

Mt biggest automotive challange in the next 10 years will probably be due to various physical limitations associated with advancing age and the challenges / ailments that go with it .

Such as diminishing night vision , difficulty getting in & out of the car & repair work that I used to take in stride / for granted .

Getting old is not for cowards .

God bless

I was just thinking, in 2028 my Prius will only be 15 years old; I expect it will be on its second battery by then, and I'll still be driving it assuming it doesn't rust out in the meantime. It might look quite a bit different by then, given all the iterations it's gone through so far.

In the next decade I would love to convert a 4 door truck to EV. Most likely I'll just have to buy one *cough* *cough* hopefully a tesla

What I'm planning to do:

I'm planning to keep all of my present vehicles in operation and in fine repair. It is possible that the most economical and ecologically friendly vehicle is one that doeasn't have to be made. I'm planning to make incremental changes and improvements to my 4 vehicles and drive the one with the best mpg the most and the one with the worst mpg the least.

I have: 1) 1994 F-150 4.9L manual 5 speed
2) 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 manual 5 speed
3) 2012 Ford Fiesta Automatic
4) 1979 Kawasaki KZ400
