Cool gas prices

As far as gas prices,I just got rid of my 4 cyl to get the bonneville just when gas prices were climbing. Remember, your in America!!! Nobody is going to influence my choice in what I drive. Its our choice what we drive.the last thing I'll do is buy a hybrid.

I have a friend that thinks his wife'* car gets better gas mileage because her tank is bigger.


By the way, how bad do those guys feel now who got rid of their vehicle now that gas is below $2/gallon?

With mine even with the fishbowl effect, I feel just like sbortoloni, love the FAST leather recliner.

Considering that my 2000 SSEi gets about 28MPG and my 2004 F-150 get'* 16MPG. I'll keep the Bonny for the economy as well as the thrill.
