Becoming even happier with the decision I made last year to put my Eclipse back in service. With the economy heading south, and car prices [both new and used] going through the roof, that decision has proven to be a good one. I am tired of feeding the automotive manufacturers a large chunk of my income. I plan to keep the old ones going as long as it is practical. NICE to have no car payments ! A few of these auto manufactures would do the world a great service [GM comes to mind] by closing thier doors for good. Too much production capacity and not enough buyers. Time to get that cheaply built, poorly engineered junk off the highways and driveways. It is only going to get worse. Not good for the national economy. The myth that we will all go all electric in the next few years is just that--A myth. ...J.D.
