Not Green: 8 MPG Plymouth GTX

It’s simple math really.   You take one totally awesome California raised Plymouth GTX, subtract all cares about what other people think, and end up with a bold custom license plate.   Oddly enough, this car was spotted last night at a Massachusetts cruise night.  Let’s throw some more math into the post for fun’s sake.

According to Google, it is about 3000 miles from California to Massachusetts, and high octane gas is around $2.97 per gallon these days.  We’ll assume that this car uses high octane for today’s equation.  3000 miles divided by 8 mpg = 375 gallons of gas.  375 gallons x $2.97 per gallon = $1113.75 .  Worth the drive?  Heck yea, every penny.

Love It?  Hate it? I’ll let readers decide ;)

What Happened To Miss Belvedere?

Miss Belvedere was the talk of the town in June of 2007 after being unearthed from the deepest darkest depths of downtown Tulsa.  She was a brand new 1957 Plymouth with just 4 miles on her when they dunked her in the pit of no return.  Fifty years later when the light of day finally shined on her again in 2007, she had not aged well.  She looked like an automotive version of the Cryptkeeper (Remember that show – Tales from the crypt!??).  Anyway, as it turns out, automobiles cannot be preserved by dunking them under water for 50 years. Wait….WHAT!? Yes it is true, dirty gutter water from the Tulsa streets does not preserve sheetmetal, fabric, or plastic.

Shortly after she was raised from the sarcophagus, she was put on display for all the interwebzz and journalists to get their piece.   » Continue reading more of this post…
