A Monte SS ? My folks weren't as racy , Try a 65 Impala wagon.
I'm kinda partial to wagons. The first car I remember as a kid was a blue '66 Oldsmobile wagon, then later a '70 Ford wagon with a 429 (first car I ever drove). I guess those got me hooked, because for the past 18 years I've driven a wagon. 300 horsepower, turbocharged, intercooled, 6 speed manual transmission, all wheel drive, adaptive sport suspension. Super fun sports car disguised as a soccer mom mobile.
Love that '72! That white roof sure is an odd color to have with the green body and wood paneling. I'm assuming that this is an internet pic, and that the roof, if painted, is something the owner did during restoration. If it's a vinyl roof, then maybe it's factory, after all. I had a '72 Cutlass convertible that was pretty close to the color of that pseudo-diesel wagon. And you're correct about that engine being horrendous. Absolute junk!
Here's some info I find interesting. My local power provider recently held a meeting with public comment to "solicited public input regarding Demand-Response (DR) Standards and Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Standards as part of new requirements contained in the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, which amended Title I of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA)."
The big takeaway I see from the meeting summary is that my service provider has more than 139,000 meters and they determined there are approximately 440 EVs regularly charging within the service area. That means our EV/meter rate is about 0.3%. Presumably that means that 0.3% (or less) of households have an EV (no breakdown of fleet vs private EV provided). EVs are just toys.
The summary is that my local power provider will not be installing anymore charging stations this year. They currently have 6 spread over 19 county coverage area.
