I've had mine five years this November. For everything that breaks, I try to fix two things. Fighting so it doesn't become a beater.

SC is a daily and will remain that capacity.

In that case, all of my cars are beaters. They dont get abused or driven hard, but I also dont polish my cars and keep them garaged like a trophy. They get driven, eaten in, slept in, used to haul people, and pick up anything bought at the store. Just another form of transportation which is their primary function. A car that just sits in a garage is useless.

That's one thing I don't like about Mustangs, they're a dime a dozen. Unless you find the older ones, there's nothing really special about them.

And, gas must be WAY cheaper in your area than it is here in SoCal - currently $3.89/gal in my area of SoCal - for you to consider that v8 monster of an engine your econobox.

A that's the first time I've ever heard a factory 4.6 2V referred to a monster of an engine Besides, a 2V does high teens and mid 20s all day long, so an extra 5 mpg over that isn't worth driving a ****box IMO, unless you bought something really recent(in which case, enjoy the monthly payment) most late model econoboxes average mid 20 to 30s at best if you actually try(and struggle) to keep up with traffic.

And $3.89? at least in so cal you have nice weather, that's what regular is here in Chicago and it sucks 9/10ths of the year lol

Not by much. It's $3.69 for 87 octane today. It's a 4R70W/3.73 car, and it averages 22-24 MPG, depending on how much traffic I get stuck in. That's far better than the F150's 14 MPG average, and a bit better than I could squeak out of the XR7 if I tried, so yes, it's my economy car.

Don't get me wrong or anything, they're still awesome cars, but for me, since I see them so much it doesn't get me as excited about seeing one as say....seeing a Mazda RX-8.

Looks like the rest of the country is catching up to our gas prices!

What are your MPGs out of your XR7? On my Bird I average about 20.5 MPGs. Hopefully I can get a little better out of her after I finish my PI intake and PI cams swap. We'll see how that goes for me.

Our gas prices have always been roughly parallel to California, you just don't hear about it much since our corrupt politicians and the several mini ice ages make better headlines for national news

I average 20-21 with 60-70% city use, with all city is usually being 18ish and all highway around 26ish depending on speed (75-80mph is usually where I find myself comfortable).

And here in California we're like, "Look, boiling water stays as water instead of turning into snow when you throw it out!" LOL

About 95% of my driving is freeway driving to and from work and I get the 20.5 ish MPGs I mentioned earlier. On a few occasions, I have managed to break 22MPGs out of my Bird, but those have been few and far between. I would LOVE to get those 22MPGs (or better) on all freeway driving on a regular basis out of my Bird. I have no idea what my mixed or all city driving MPGs would be.

4hrs?! Damn, that's far! Big Bear is 20min from me, and my favorite beach, Newport Beach, is just over an hour from me.

I can't say that the NE's are all that common around here anymore. I've actually only seen one other Comp Orange NE in person since buying mine in '10, and that was nothing more than a passing glance on the interstate.

I can't say that I really track mileage in the XR7, as it is rarely driven docilely. One of the few times I can recall running a tank through it without really being on the pedal much was on the way to the Hot Rod Power Tour in '12. Cruising at 80-85 MPH on the highway with a couple blasts and limited backroads, it averaged a little over 20 MPG. Keep in mind, that's driving a blower without a bypass valve, sans EGR, sans IMRC's, and with 4.10 gears. I'm sure I could improve significantly on that number if I cared to.

Did anyone else notice that the members here that actually use their Thunderbird or Cougar as their beater will not take part in this poll?

You know the ones that are keeping their car held together with just duct tape and bubble gum..

Then they come here looking for advice..Just so they can get a couple more miles out of the car before they completely run it into the ground!

No matter how safe it is..
