C5 economy


A good reason for buying a late model Vette,
People don't believe that a 600hp car can give 30mpg,
If you can't see the pic clearly, speed 60mph, revs 1500, mpg 30.9
( remember that's a smaller US gallon )
I bet the Vette in front was not doing that on the way to the Nationals today, was it Ross

Perhaps he had to take his seat belt off to reach for his "hands free" camera. Doh

Revival of an old post I see, old habits I'm afraid Rich, being a London cabbie I'm exempt when working and just find them restrictive, not an excuse I know!

Re: C5 economy


Legislation is not a replacement for brain power - I'm guessing there's loads of nasty edges and surfaces to do yourself a nasty injury in a cab in the unfortunate event of a prang - and let no one one say Tony has a hard enough head not to be injured Driving Driving
