    I'm sure glad I kept my 2002 Ford Mustang in excellent condition with only 60,000 miles on it. :D :argh:

    Circa late 60's --- Charger, or a Cobra. Driven them both and I mean "hard". Scary though because the parts are really hard to find if you mess one up.

    This reminds me of the buzz about IoT exploitation by angry ex partners.

    I heard it will be illegal to drive a car over 10 years old one day. I don't think that is too far fetched of an idea either considering they need a car with the most up to date electronics for spying.

    I have an EMF detector and my car emits this horrible signal that last for like 6 seconds. It's probably the wifi tire pressure system though.

    I don't even drive (I have my parents and sister drive for me) because I don't want to be burdened with the extra risks and dangers of driving, and most importantly I have no need to endanger my safety driving.

    Yeah, those will run forever, with good maintenance. If you can keep the body from rusting away ;)

    "Every minute for three months, GM secretly gathered data on 90,000 drivers' radio-listening habits and locations

    On September 12th, GM's director of global digital transformation Saejin Park gave a presentation to the Association of National Advertisers in which he described how the company had secretly gathered data on the radio-listening habits of 90,000 GM owners in LA and Chicago for three months in 2017, tracking what stations they listened to and for how long, and where they were at the time; this data was covertly exfiltrated from the cars by means of their built-in wifi.

    The company says it never sold this data, but the presentation to the advertising execs was clearly designed to elicit bids for it. Toyota has promised not to gather and sell telematics data, but GM seems poised to create a market in data gathered by your car, which can listen to you, follow you, take pictures of you and your surroundings, and even gather data on which passengers are in the car at different times by tracking Bluetooth beacons from mobile devices..."
