I used to drive a Crown Vic around. I would love to have that V8 rear wheel drive back.
I feel you. When I started driving (2005) I had a 1983 GMC pickup. Maybe 15 mpg. In college, I was given a 1987 Monte Carlo that maybe got 20 mpg. When I moved to AZ in 2009, I went 2.5 years without a car.
I picked up a 1974 Dart out in the desert in Fall 2011. With a stock 318 and a dual carb, she gets about 10 mpg, no more than 15 on the highway. Thank god for the train.
