car talk
I get to wish my black car a happy 10th birthday pretty soon, it having been first sold in October '97. By then I'll probably have somewhere around 120,000 miles which is pretty much pocket change. For a 10-year old car it's still a blast to drive. I can hit 80mph in 3rd gear but still get close to 30mpg when cruising in 5th gear at well over the speed limit. (I hit 31.5 mpg this evening while cruising around 75mph. I'd say that's not too shabby.) Meanwhile the blue car turns 40 this year. Look for party invitations in your mailbox soon!
