My “old clunker,” a ‘97 Saturn, has 170k miles on it, runs great, and gets 30-35 mpg. I also save on car insurance. It’s nice to know that as a reward for my frugality, I’ll be paying for other people to buy new cars.
same deal with my 94 Golf.
When dealing with gubermint, it rarely ever pays off to do the right thing, be responsible or ‘reuse and recycle’.
I’ve got a 97 Saturn also and it’s great.
Sometimes we just have to grin and bear the fact that the govt is screwing us, at least until the next election.
