so you're tellin me I ***** footed my 96 trans am when I was getting 22 mpg on the interstate? that's the only place I got good gas mileage. anywhere else I got like maybe 10 mpg at most. lol.

no thats good if your getting 10 mpg then your a driver just like me. it depends on what kind of driving you do. if im just driving around town.... im not doing the speedlimit if im driving a long distance im probably not doing the speedlimit but im not trying to race anyone either, its just a constant speed and now stopping. but around town yeah ill burn up more gas cause i float through traffic. i hate beeing stuck behind slow drivers

HAHA...you want to know something cool? My wife is excited about the new camaro coming out. She wants to help choose options (told her is was ultimately up to me, since it would be my car which she understands). When we got her the Kia, I let her get all the bells and whistles (even freakin butt warmers for the love of God...We're in TEXAS for cryin out loud!). So...when it's time to get my car, there won't be any complaining at all.

Ouch! Yeah, believe it or not, my wife was driving a Mustang. She wasn't too happy with that car when she was pregnant. I held off as long as I could. But when it was time, there was no cutting corners on safety for the little one. I sold the Mustang to one of my buddies, used that money to pay off the Z-28, and took out a full loan on the Kia (to avoid having two car payments. That kept the monthly payments to $400 vs $700 for both. If you stay single for a while, no one can tell you what to do. However, if u meet a cool girl who has the same interests as you and ends up becoming your wife, well....there's nothing like two incomes and all the money saved by staying in the same house, etc, etc.

That's cool. Now, make sure she remembers she said that! I remember those good old days where it was "my money". hehe... What I wouldn't do just to be able to get a nice set of headers and Y pipe for my SS. The wife knows all I want for Xmas and my Bday's are "car parts"....specifically headers/y pipe. Maybe once all the landscaping and the deck is done I might get lucky. We'll see.

my dad has a new chevy impala ss with the 5.3 liter v8 that cuts down to 4cylinders. The car averages 18 mpg. Its a good idea to save gas but gm i guess just hasnt perfected it yet.

DOD(displacement on demand) Technology is awesome as long as it doesn't cause engine lag.

Know what ya mean. I drove the 07 Impala when I went on vacation for a week in Los Angeles. I couldn't tell you just how many miles I put on that car! It had DOD and I tell you...if there was lag, I could never tell, not even for a single moment. I'd romp on it on the 101 and that V6 kicked right in.
