    I was worried that I might have run you over the other day. Was just a stick, thank goodness.

    It was in one in 1997. Three vehicles involved. Made the news. This is the only one still on the road.

    yeah I have a stock 96 that gets between 10 - 12
    my 84 w/460 got about 10 ... of course in 1996 gas was cheaper, but it still cost 40 bucks to fill the tank
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Just the other day I bought a clean little '91 Toyota 4x4 pickup with the 22R 4-banger and 5-speed. Have not driven it enough to check mileage but it's gotta be a lot better than what the '78 Bronco gets..LOL
