I came upon this company today while listening to "evil conservative radio". :shock:

AFS Trinity Power Corp.

Interesting, but I was under the impression from the radio show that this company was selling some sort of transmission that would get your average size auto 150 mpg. But as the company shows it is a complete reworking of a Vue suv powertrain. The final cost is only $31,000.

I asked my wife if she would buy one, and she told me that she would take that money and triple it in 2-3 years by investing in the stock market. 8)

Gotta love a woman who knows the value of a dollar. btw, she drives one of our three metros, and loves it.

Evil conservative radio? Was that a sarcastic comment?

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

Love it when Rush Limbaugh stated the "axis of evil; Diane Feinstien, Barbera Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton"

I don't know how anyone can stand the garbage that passes for talk radio and news stations today. Never have I heard people talk so much without saying anything of importance.

I don't miss having television.
