  •  Dodge Dart has the best mileage, 41 mph if (2+ / 0-)

    you drive a stick, a little less for automatic. The 200 is a real nice car as well.

    •  I had a '75 Dart. Slant six. LOVED it! Bought it (0+ / 0-)

      used in '79 while in grad school. We drove it into the ground--even re-covered the front seats. Then pulled a small Uhaul from Texas to NYC. Parked it for 3 years, unmoved.

      After 3 years sitting in an old friends yard, we cleaned the bee hive out of the engine, and the weeds growing up in there, and roll-started it on a slight hill--a little nervously. It started right up, and with just an oil change, ran like a top, 'til my husband hit a deer and it began eating tires--around '89. The engine still ran great.

      Then we gave it to a neighbor kid who restored it. Still on the road, as far as I know.  What a GREAT American car!

      Okay, the Government says you MUST abort your child. NOW do you get it?
