Out of curiosity, are the extreme taxes on the bigger engine cars only when you purchase one new, or does it also apply to used cars with bigger engines? I suspect it is an annual tax that is still high on older cars with bigger engines. If that is the case, wouldn't that make the resale value of used cars with bigger engines worse because people wouldn't want to pay the higher taxes?
