      None of our cars get much better than 12 mpg. The Cutlass might get 14 mpg on the highway, but we don't go on the highway much anyway.

          Reliability is more important than mpg. Unless you can't afford it. Found this on Craigslist. https://topeka.craigslist.org/cto/d/...434418494.html

                I'd like to have it but too far for me to go to get it.

                  I would want to see what shape its in. No pictures of the front end or engine. I assume its a v8 and either 350 or 400 transmission. More $ than I want to spend. Its about an hour west of us. Says yellow but looks white to me. I already have an old car that I don't drive.

                    Back at you Phil! We haven't seen you since 2018 I believe. I was on the fence this year until I saw Pensacola. I was stationed there in 1969. We talked about swinging over there after Mobile in 2010 but that was the last stop & we needed to get home.

                        George - a buddy of mine saw your post but could not respond. He suggested you NOT stay in that area. He lives down south and hits all the tracks in that area - here is his quote.

                        Tell geo1861 that days inn sycamore view was a very bad choice. Slum area! go to Germantown parkway! I could not post on bangshift.

                          Sunday and Monday I personally am further EAST (not west as posted previously) out I-40 on Germantown Pkwy In Cordova TN Comfort Suites - then 3 Sleep Inn stays - until Pensacola at the Clarion. I think Millington is safe too.

                                Phil, ask him about the area we are in. Best Western Plus Galleria Inn off of US 64. I think that’s the Galleria-Wolfchase area?
