FxdGrMind, he say:
05 VW Golf TDI 211K miles @ 55+ Average MPG over it's life. Love it!
Dude, I have an '03 with the smaller engine, and only get 45MPG. What are you doing to get 55?

Tartan and Volvo, seems to fit, classic, safe, a little sporty, seems to me car and boat have a lot in common.

Both are relatively inexpensive, very versatile, cheap on gas, and the green one can pull the red & blue one....
What car is going to go with the Power Tri in development? You did so well matching already.

Keep the S-10, my dad and I were just commenting on how many of these POS little trucks we still see all over the place.
Keep the SanJuan too, not a POS, so your car and boat don't match!
