Hey all. Been a while since I posted. Considering a new (old) pickup. Current DD is a '68 Bug, which gets 26 mpg. However, I commute 50 miles round trip (mostly freeway), and own a home that needs work. Needless to say, the bug is less than safe for hauling the occasional kiddie, useless for yard work, but fun to drive. My last DD was a '66 Suburban, which I loved, but could'nt afford to feed. Aside from parts, it needed fuel--11 mpg sucked, no matter how cool the thing was. My question is what are you driving, and how's the economy? Obviously I won't find a full-size that gets near what the bug is getting now, but I've heard of guys wringing 20 mpg out of Ford inliners, small Chevvies, Slant-sixes, etc. Maybe bullshit, maybe not. I have visions of a short-wide with a 300 six and an overdrive... Thanks for your help.
