I got 20 MPG today
« on: June 09, 2008, 09:53:29 PM »
My 289 3 speed with a 2.73 rear got an average of 20 mpg today when I took my 400 mile trip.  Most of that was 70-80 MPh freeway speeds, but a lot of it was in town stop and go too.  About the last 100 miles was the best that old girl has ever run.  I guess it just takes a stretching of the legs every now and again to keep these old dinosaurs running at their best.  Ol' Yeller is the best running original 1965 289 coupe on this planet, bar none.  :)

A  T5 would be nice, but would take a bunch of miles before paying for itself.  I'm kinda thinking about getting a small beater pickup with a 4 banger in it, and only drive the 65 on weekends. 
BTW, Ron Paul threw in the towel yeasterday.  One of the things he said that sorta surprised me was that he never really considered himself a real candidate, but that he wanted to get the word out.  He also said he wouldn't support McCain.

I'm not sure how that fundraising money thing legally works.  Are you saying that he can take the extra 5 mil and distribute that to other Republican candidates such as senators, etc.?

OK.  Sounds like a plan.
