What to call them...

edited November -1 in General
I've been trying to think of a name for the non-Tesla car manufacturers; The ones still stuck in the old paradigm of doing things. The companies that think EVs have to look like a LEAF or an i3; "Traditional Car Manufactures" is lengthy to type. How about Legacy Auto Manufacturing Enterprises... or "LAMES" thoughts?

    I'd rather just call them what their cars run on: dinosaurs.

    I prefer fossils. Dinos were and are rather successful branch of the tree of life (all birds are actually dinosaurs with wings).
