1969 Ford F100 4x4 Custom Cab - bored out 390, Holley double pumper, agressive cam, headers, and glasspacks, got an amazing 6-8 mpg

1992 Mitsubish 3000GT VR4 (have had for 8 yrs now, stored in garage) 3.0 liter, twin turbo, intake, boost controller, fuel controller, gutted precats, stillen racing downpipe (eliminated main cat), custom cat back exhaust, ansa mufflers. 370hp. Still fun to drive, but currently in rebuild process.

then the 2002 focus zts, bought wrecked, then fixed it up for my daily driver, so i wouldn't have to drive the vr4, good gas mileage, lacking in power, but i guess i was expecting that.

bought a 2005 Saab 93 Arc for wife, a great smooth ride, 5spd, good stock hp (210) getting chipped in a few weeks!

the car i had before my focus was a 1988 Toyota Camry with 215,000 miles. that 2.0 was a hell of a lot slower than this 2.0.

1988 Cadillac Coupe Deville... The thing was a friggin boat. 17 mpg usually... 22.4 highway. The one thing I miss is the "information center" computer it had on its dash and the air suspension... oh well.

before that I drove a 2001 PT Boozer.

I hear ya! same deal here, I had a 2001 mustang gt, my pride and joy that car was but had to sell it - needed something with more space for the baby and especially something with better gas mileage.
