Joel D Canfield noted: >>it actually got something like 18 MPG. seated 6 large adults comfortably, >>and you could fit all their luggage in the trunk. Heh, Guy around the corner from the apartment I was (recently) living in had a big old (I'm guessing 1953) Cadillac in the driveway. Sea Foam Green & Chrome. Beautiful car. Always made me smile driving by. It sat in the driveway because he kept the 'cool' cars in the garage! One day I drove by and he had twins in the driveway. The Sea Foam Green Caddy and an identical car in Forest Green. Man, I definitely have the wrong job. Anyway, to Joel's point, yeah - once you get them up to speed on the highway it took very little to keep them going. They didn't get great mileage in town ... but out on the highway they wasn't bad. But the smiles may be worth it! RonL.
