<<And if I could afford it I'd buy and even smaller more fuel efficient car than the one I'm driving. I wish the Scion I.Q. got better gas mileage than it does. Or the Smart Car. If they got 50 miles to the gallon I'd be tempted to buy one.

I'm sort of saving up to buy a Prius C; maybe like after I start social security?>>

<<The problem is my car is paid for and it only has 53,000 miles on it and runs fine and gets decent gas mileage 31/37 and I only drive like 5,000 miles a year so the damn thing will probably last me till I'm 70 >>





Hey Art---

Your're only spending $500/year on fuel as it is.

Buying a new car for reasons of economy is usually something for suckers to do. Be HAPPY with what you have!

Or buy a new car when you win the lottery!
