Do you think that this will spell the end of the rising prices paid for Australian muscles cars (say xw to xc) because people can simply not afford to run the big V8's.
The bubble has to burst sometime. I mean $190, 000 foir a xy gt ph3 is heavy but for a car you cant afford to run because fuel is through the roof is nuts.
Its not impossible to forsee $4 or $5 a litre in the future. Oil production is at max at the moment and resevers are running low. I think the world is just starting to run out of oil.
Also I think i heard at the last motor show that every manufacture of cars is working on an electric car or hybrid system.
Is this the the beginnnig of the end of the aussie V8 past and future?
There is plenty of LPG left in the ground, cough!
