I have no relationship to the company. I have followed the stories in the news since the 2009 Detroit Auto Show as a car enthusiast and consumer.

Thanks, just checking.

You understand it might appear potentially suspicious that a brand new member's very first post in a contentious thread contains links profiling the contentious company's work.

Wanted to make sure we didn't have any shameless promotion going on.

The only thing green about the Verde was the pukey color....There was no sign of the mythical magic motor, which most astute folks know is a figment of Doug's imagination.....

It certainly makes for some lively forum discussion. I will stay tuned and see what happens.

I wish people would temper their language as well.

Don't hold your breath waiting for some truth to come from the media. Hell, I fed some reporters the undisputable facts on a platter and they did NOTHING with it.
