Sorry, but it's against the law for the "good ol' days" to include CD's. Eight-Tracks? Fine. AM has been allowed for a long time. FM was just approved but cassette's are still under review and it ain't looking too good...

Mileage? Many new compact cars can get 35-40 mph. The new dodge 1/2 ton pickup can get 25 highway. My old thunderbird with a 215hp v8 gets 25 hwy. My wifes 220hp fusion, an older one, gets 32 mpg highway, I've even squeezed 38 while drafting a semi. That fusion with a six speed tranny will take my bird any day. The advantage of mine is the availability of engine mods, which ironically I can't afford, because I make car parts for a living.
I guess I just have bad luck with newer cars.. Everyone Ive had just turns into a money pit. Yet Ive bought a couple of "junk" IH's that have sat for who knows how long, put a battery in and end up driving the thing home burning the old gas that has turned onto "varnish", tires disintegrating...

Ive had my pickup since '01 and my Scout since '06, and both still run.. Every other brand ive had lasted less than a year

I do miss my Cadillac though, that thing ZOOMED! But it was the biggest money put of them all

My mom uses unthaw too. I have always use thaw-out. I looked up the definition of unthaw to see what it would say.
Definition of*unthaw

verb

1) North American*melt or thaw:[with object]:the warm weather helped unthaw the rail lines 2) (as adjective*unthawed)*still frozen: you can cook prawns from frozen by plunging them, unthawed, into boiling water Logically, the verb*unthaw*should mean ‘freeze’, but in North America it means exactly the same as*thaw.

Now try explaining that a turbo or super charger is basically just a way to artificially increase the compression by adding extra air/fuel. "fitting a 5 gallon jug in a quart jar"

Meh, my little 2.5 liter sentra put out as much hp stock as many larger engines from "back in the day". As long as i got a stick to stir the gears, i will be happy; i drove a 115 hp geo prizm (corolla) for a few years and loved it. I could get something out of the trunk while driving down the interstate getting 35 mpg; it was that small.

Just watched a story on CBS national news about Californias economic recovery. WTH, how can you have an economy in recovery when you are losing 100,000 taxpayers a year ?

If we could just make it so that there were 100,000 welfare cases leaving the state every year we would be golden (again).

Okay, for the record...
Since I know it was mentioned in the drinking thread, I kinda broke Cinder's gun. Not really broke though. The trigger bar spring jumped. The internals were completely coated in grease, to the point of just being nasty, so I disassembled it, no problem, we cleaned it, and while reassembling it, putting the ejector and sear back in, that's what happened. Now the trigger bar hangs as limp as a boiled spaghetti noodle. The bar spring is supposed to press the bar upwards.

And now I'm smoking a cigar. And drinking a beer.
