you can't have both? wtf you talkin bout?

You can probably do it with a DOD 6 that's in the Camaro right now. gets 29 right now.

Other ways of getting mpg's would be making the car more aerodynamic.

An easier way of getting mpg's would be to make the car lighter. The lighter the car the less power it will need , hence the economy will go up. Less rolling resistance helps also.

I will not be buying a new car for a long time once I get my Camaro and if I don't like any of them being offered I will just keep on rebuilding the ones I already have.

I am sure that with the Nanny Government that the American People voted in last November that they will find a way to take those older cars off of the road. Taxes are a powerful weapon. With them the government encourages and discourages behavior. Go look at the window sticker on a Shelby Mustang or an SRT8 Challenger. Look carefully at the section that shows the $1,700.00 gas guzzler tax. Our free republic has been co-opted by the communists. They give deductions on your federal income tax for the behaviors that THEY deem appropriate. It is a sad state of affairs. Here in Massachusetts we have an esteemed proffessor at MIT that disagrres with the global warming scare. There are many like him but the prevailing media will never let you hear their opinions because their opinons go against their agenda. "The American people get the government that they deserve." If you buy a $42,000.00 SRT8 here in Taxachusetts, you will pay a 5%(soon to be 6.25% thanks to our governor, Barrack's friend Deval Patrisk) sales tax. Then you will pay an additional 2.5% excise tax each year that you own the vehicle, combined with the gas guzzler tax you will have payed $3,150.00 in taxes before you have made a single payment on your loan or insurance. If we don't like this, we must vote the Nannies out in the next election.
