...but don't count on another spur of "G3's" to come from it.

It looks like they want to raise fuel economy standards to 56mpg! Gay

Love this quote though:

"The smallest, lightest cars still have death rates about twice as high as those of the largest, heaviest ones."

And people wonder why I roll in a big car.

I finally bought a small car for the gas mileage a 97 ranger with 2.3 5 speed traded off my 91 Chevy 1/2 ton with a 350. Sad But I will always have big cars. The Fleet: 02 caddy DTS, 77 Cutlass Supreme, 69 442, O ya and 03 civic hybrid that was the fiancee's, but i gave her the caddy Now the hybrid is for sale Smile

Make sure the head gaskets are good before you go through the trouble of getting plates for that Taurus.

You will be sorry. I sold a mint condition 94 T-Bird with the 3.8 for $200 simply because it was in the shop all the time. I had 2 blown head gaskets in less than 2 years' time. JB

DC & the EPA can kiss my (_._) Here goes the Nannie state again...telling you and me both what's good for us. Anyone seen the new Fiat's that are soon to come to a Mopar dealer near you? The thing I saw today look like one of Stupid...I Mean...Smart for 2 cars. Search crash test videos for "Smart Cars" & let me know if you'll be buying one for your kid or the mother-in-law.

I've heard stories of oil companies buying all of these inventions so they can't be produced. . . Found the documentary on youtube, I'll have to check it out later on today.
