I get exactly the same feelings-of-disappointment after each presidential election: "...promises of GOOD, followed by actions of BAD..." (wink,wink)!

Honda will launch a 1.6 liter V6 hybrid engine next year.
It will not see the engine bay of a 3rd gen Insight, sad as that may be.
It will power F1 cars though.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about burning over 100 kg of fuel per hour...

Those stupid wing implosion spoiler things are proven to work with A-B-A testing.

Pretty much anything in the unicorn.

BMW fitting a 3-cylinder 1.5L turbocharged gasser into the 3-series, 5-series, X1 and X3. Maybe in a mid-term future it wouldn't be just a prank...

CAUTION (my warped sense of humor is showing) ! !

1) GM re-introduces their new 2015 HUMMER IV EV vehicle?

2) Ford re-introduces the Edsel?

3) GM re-introduces the Corvair?

4) American Motors Corp re-introduces the Gremlin?

5) Florida Voting Department suddenly discovering a long-lost cache of Presidential-ballot "chads."

6) The Ex-Lax Company merging with Hersey Chocolate?

7) NSA suddenly discovering the dreaded "Blue Screen of Death" on ALL of their Microsoft OS machines.

8) The U. S. Postal Service experimenting with flavored "lickable" postage stamps?

9) The Supreme Court Judges suddenly declare Obama's Affordable Care Act 'null-and-void' because they discover it APPLIES to them too!

10) Canadian scientists discover "Cold Fusion" is the REAL cause of 'Climate Change.'

I should have asked my friends if they would believe I traded in my Mustang for a Prius.
