Here’s the official EPA sticker for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt.  If all it got was 37 mpg, there would be no reason to even consider it. However, the first-adopters will likely do everything they can to minimize the times the gasoline engine kicks in to drive the generator, and in turn, the electric motor.

This 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet is similar to the one driven by Captain von Trapp in the 1965 movie, The Sound of Music.  These pre-war Mercedes are worth a fortune and are highly coveted.  It’s an engineering masterpiece and a work of art.  Beautifully and meticulously restored, it won the Best in Show at the 2010 Amelia Island (Florida) Concours d’Elegance.
