    I used to drive my blazer, or my '78 2wd stepside everyday. Now I have a 98 civic that I bought off my grandparents. As far as gas, I get between 32-38 MPG, I love that car. Yeah, Hondas are nice! So I drive any of those 3.

    76 Blazer......or 78 LeSabre with a 403. 12 or 13 mpg, so it really doesn't matter. I will be driving the Buick when the temp gets >90 since it has A/C. I guess that will be next week..........

    I've got a '81 Datsun 720 pickup. Gets upper 20's for mileage, and can accomplish quite a bit of work too (more than it should). :whistle: It's taken all the abuse I can dish out, and just won't quit. It's nice to have something that can still be used as a "work truck" and still get good mileage.

    My DD is a CTD Dodge 4x4 ( 19 MPG ) and when/if it fails I crank up my most trusted and reliable Toyota p/u ( only 14 MPG ) which has never failed me.
