Now that President Bush has signed legislation that auto makers have to meet 35 MPG , some are saying that the muscle car era is ending. Gas prices are expected to rise dramatically after the elections. Some experts and commentators state that big oil is losing presently and is waiting till after the elections to start making up for lost profits presently. They haven't adjusted much due to the 100 dollar a barrel increases. They are talking 4.50 to 5.00 a gallon. We'll see. Unlike the 70's our muscle car gets 26 MPG which I love! Pickup trucks have been the staple of most manufactures and they average 11-15 Mpg. So my question is "Do you think our cars will level or go up in price as demand for muscle may not be answered by manufactures ?" Meaning past muscle may be the only answer for some. I'm sure there will be many small displacment, fast cars but nothing I would be comfortable in or even consider. Some are here now I just don't fit in them and they get worst gas mileage than our Zo6 to my surprise. Subaru WRX as an example. Fast, small, 20mpg on a good day. Nothing I would consider. I remember 70 GTO's going for $500. dollars in the mid to late 70's. I don't think that will happen to us. Let's hear it chime in!! I know there are alot of variables to the statements but in general!
