    If I recall correctly, that's still one of the best MPG cars ever available in the US. Keep it :D

    It's more environmentally friendly to keep an old car running than to get a new one. Well, that line of thinking only applies if they made less new cars because of the decreased demand due to people using old cars, but it's a nice way to get a good night's sleep :)

    2007 Chevy silverado Classic wish I had a pic of it. But I bought it brand new with all of 4 miles on it and I just rolled 100,880 miles. but it's done great for every work and weekend adventure I can ask it too. It helps to have to haul around the toys for when I get a wild hair and decide to do something like this

    I really wish I could ride one of those on the road instead of driving my truck every where.

    This is my car. A 2003 Seat Arosa with 61HP and 85.5 cubic inches. It's a pretty small car, consumes little fuel and is actually quite respectable in terms of driving performance (pretty light and large cylinder space relative to HPs).

    I'm a huge fan of wagons, but this one is painfully slow... yet fairly attractive (and extremely competent).

    This is my Mini, there are MANY (3 Million +) like it, but this one is mine. And I love it.

    I don't "drive" much. This motorcycle is basically my car.
    [​IMG]

    My wife has a car, and I have a couple of old CJ3B Jeeps and a couple of M-series trucks (M37 and M715), but this bike (and some others) is (are) how I usually get around.

    I don't keep much on/in the bikes for daily carry other than some tools, but I load them up with too much when I travel on them.

    We tried to work a deal - it turned south at "we take your rig and we keep our fuel bill?" (in case it isn't obvious the white sprinter is ours. Started as a work truck. Did some "converting" so we can travel comfy in it....awesome fuel economy - 21 MPG over 8606 miles last summer...)

    Set up in Reno:

    Set up in Zion:

    Cabinet/table: (passenger seat swivels)

    We also:

    - use our mattress from home on a bed frame my brother and I fabricated.
    - have four golf cart batteries - we can usually run about 5 days pretty comfortably.
    - inverter/charger on board for topping off battery bank when at campgrounds
    - all LED lighting for the "house" (notice in the night time awning shot - amber LEDs under awning - red LEDs in truck.) there are also 6500K LEDs for the inside also.

    2009 - two weeks out
    2010 - 5 weeks out
    2011 - we told our friends and pet sitter 2-3 weeks max....ended up being six??

    Yeh. We LOVE traveling.

    Http://Autolox.smugmug.com if you want to check out some pics from our adventures.

    This is an 04 dodge sprinter. I work daily out of an 02 sprinter - medium wheelbase.

    Wife drives an orange 03 Honda element daily. We affectionately refer to that as our "orange peel".

    Other vehicles? Why yes! When I'm not working I like to stay out of vehicles if possible:

    Yeah, reading that article, I was wondering when they might get to the Top Gear "test" ... Incredible!

    Another great episode was when they drove it up the volcano :)
