Default Road Trip

My mom took the GXP on its first road trip. Well rather a mini road trip (Philly to DC) this week. She said it was a great cruiser on the highway and her 3 other friends had plenty of room and the trunk was the perfect size. She said she checked the DIC and the average mpg was 25.4 once she got to their hotel. She was happy to see something higher than her normal 16-17 mpg. (She drives 3 miles a day to the train station and back on residential roads.) When she gets back tomorrow, i am going to check what the car says on the DIC.

On a side note, we are giving her 95 to my cousin in Arkansas. She is moving there tomorrow. My mom and i aree driving it down friday and spending a few days with her, her husband and baby. I am sad to see the bonnie go, but i am glad its going to someone who i know will keep good care of it. I would love to keep it, but i can't part with either of my cars and 4 cars is too much for the two of us.

Do you have any pics of your 91 caddy Seville. That was just before they went big again right?
