    With an increasing abundance of electric, and hybrid vehicles on the road these days, and FCA up and creates this beast called the Hellcat, have you experienced any dirty looks, rude behavior, or even road rage from "green" vehicle owners as a result of owning your gas guzzling Hellcat?

    Hehe! Yep, I just blow past them and stop at Chevron once a week! Making those little suckers rattle the doors when I blow by is all the satisfaction I need to make me smile! Its their punishment for slowing me down on the way to work every day!:D

    No, not yet. It's rampant here in California though. Thousands of Prius' flood our highways, and most have very little regard for muscle cars. Most like to cut you off while driving at high speeds, or jump in front of you and drive slower than the flow of traffic.

    Oh yes! Some uppity old biddy in the grocery store parking lot started fussing at me for ruining the earth with my gas guzzler. That's ok, though, because by the time I was finished, the emotion she felt toward me went from irritated to hatred. And I have no problem with that whatsoever. I enjoyed it, actually. :D

    It's kind if like the days when Hummers were the big bad environment killers... except Hellcats are more enjoyable.

    I prefer the AL Gore approach: plant a few trees and put up a few "solar" panels and call me neutral. Go Hellcat go!!! Another way to think about it is we don't slow everyone else down and make them higher polluters. We get on the road and get the "hell" out of their slow ass way.

    Carbon Footprints, at their basic calculation, used to be a relevant means of capturing the impact our man-made stuff exhibited (now the calculations are all dorked up with 'credits').

    That stated: how, do you suppose, does the full footprint (manufacturing of raw and machined materials and usage of product) of an HC compares to that of, saaaaaay, a Tesla?

    Professionally, I am into hydropower development, I know me and my friends are making the planet better for all of us. That cancels out any accusation they may throw at my Hellcat for eating resources. And like April said above I won't be bashful about standing up for myself and correcting them for engaging their tongues before knowing what they are talking about.

    I think we need a metric of fun per ton of CO2. I think the hellcat would be the solid winner.
