Didn't you go to McGill, though? And work on an electric car project while there? That's what sticks in my head.

I see that Mustang sales have increased every month since the 2015 reveal.  Could that be because potential Mustang buyers don't like the 2015 and are purchasing the current model while they still can?

Possibly a more likely explanation is that the economy is on the rebound and people have more disposable income. Mustang is not a necessity, it's a second car for a lot of people. 

 

Camaro is up so far this year as well. 

 

I don't understand the reasons to buy a S197 when the S550 has already been shown, and it looks to improve in every way on the S197. I'll take mine in Triple Yellow, 2.3L EcoBoost, please!

0% finance for 60 month +$2,000 cash back or %4,750 cash back sure greases the wheels...

Money losers?  Why are all the taxi companies buying hybrids then?  Depending on the usage profile, hybrids and EVs can save tons of money in the long run if you look at total cost of ownership.

I'm sorry but it appears we have come to a decidedly difference of opinion my fellow Canadian. Perhaps we should discuss this over a poutine and beer, eh? Of course I'm always up for a beavertail and some backbacon too so please don't consider my pallet singularly focus'd on the staples.

More to the point however, I would like to express my concern with purchasing a vehicle, (that in this area at least) has basically no resale value and requires all maintenance be performed at the local dealership. The alternative being that we send the tech's on courses ($$$) and obtain tooling and equipment ($$$) for a vehicle that we will retain for 3 years.

 

Please don't think I take your counter to my opinion lightly as it causes me great anguish to have to do so. But, I feel I must express myself, as is my right as a Canadian.

 

Sincerely,

Your honourable opposition.

It's a shame you can't discuss this like us Americans.  It would go something like this:  "You freaking moron!  You have no clue what you are talking about!  Get out of my forum you worthless piece of trash!"

 

Canadians!  Are you sure Justin Bieber is Canadian?  He fits in too well with the American celebrities.

 

Side note...I had to look up backbacon to see what it is.  Dam, that looks yummy!   :drool:
