    Here in Northwestern Pennsylvania, it's about $2.69 a gallon. By far not the cheapest out there, but nowhere near as bad as most places I am seeing on here. Thus, I guess how I can afford to drive vehicles with such large engines.

    2-I live in Venezuela.
    3-Gas price is the unique good thing of our-crappy-economy.

    Here in southern Illinois (Think St.Louis area) I've been paying about $2.45 for 87, $2.60 for 89, and around $3.00 for diesel.

    Still, I'd rather have a Miata with a rotary swap.

    So it's official, the creeper van is not slow. As much as I dislike the 6.0's, the can make power.

    Are 70's-80's American cars a common sight or rare by now?

    Should've left the license plates visible. These heroes deserve to be recognised.

    Won't be as slidey and fun as a RWD pickup though, and doughnuts would have to be done in reverse.
    At least diesel is cheaper than gas like it should be, I don't like the fact that I have to pay more for less refined fuel.

    Really it depends where you live... in more populated areas, most cars are mid to late 2000's. In places like where I live however, if your driving a 95 (I drove my Subaru today) you probably have a solid decade or more on most vehicles you will see. Now most of them aren't anything cool... most are like the LeGran, so your stereotypical grandma car.

    True that. We also pay less tax on diesel cars, for some reason. Easily over half the cars here are diesels :)

    In most country areas of America about 1/5 of every truck here is a diesel, and about 1/10 of those diesel are from some fuckhead think rolling coal is cool.

    That's a surprisingly low number still, pretty much 100% of commercial/work vehicles here are diesels, and half of all normal cars i'd say are diesels too.

    Few things in car culture irritate me more than rolling coal. It's absolutely pointless on its own, and it's just a shitty thing to do when you blow the soot into some poor bystander's face. People who do it are nothing more than scum in my eyes.
