Why Can't Great Gas Mileage BE SEXY?

One of the Sexxxiest Cars ever made The 1976 Chevy Corvette Stingray

Yesterday, My Wife, my friend, and I went to the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix. Mista Jaycee received Tickets from a real nice Fella who blessed me with two premium tickets. We walked the grounds, entering the Long Beach Convention center and checked out the Automobile exhibits. Now, just so y'all know....I love certain types of cars. The 64 Impala, the Super Sport, The 85 Olds Cutlass, the 83 Buick Regal, the 68 Camaro, the 64/65/70 Mustang! The Cadillac Northstar STS! The 78 Mazda RX-7 the 76 Stingray Ohhhhhh Yeah! But I wouldn't say that I'm a car buff.

Mista Jaycee, Aren't all those cars kinda like Gangsta cars?

1968 Chevy Camaro

Well, I'll give you that on the 85 Cutlass and the 83 Regal. Both GM cars by the way! And the 54 Bel Air but so what! Ohhhhh they're soooo pretty!

The 54 Bel Air is a thing of beauty. Now as I strolled the show exhibits I dug the SMART Car and a few of the new economy cars but I feel like the auto industry is still trying to CON us. Why can't we take the shell of a Regal or a Super Sport and put in an engine that will run on clean fuel and give great gas mileage?

Bomba! 1954 Chevy Bel Air

Great gas mileage is defined as 45MPG not 24 or 33 highway or any of that nonsense! How about 45 to start? All the cars I saw with the exception of a few race cars were these super compacts. Now, the 1980 Honda Civic was small and egg shaped but it was a great running car.
That's right! The 1980 Honda Civic was a great running car! Small, yes but it ran great!

1980 Honda Civic Hella lot Bigger than the Smart Car!

I believe that we can build a great looking, good size car that runs on clean fuel. (Peanut Oil) Electricity and Biodiesil. This is America!

BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!

I had the chance to buy a cherry one years ago. The dude was selling as a result of his divorce. He retracted the sell and gave his soon to be ex something else.
