Muscle Car Educating the muscle car masses? : Peak Oil Discussion - Page 3 ...: Peak Oil News and Mess... Look Good

I've been reading this board since 2004, though I rarely post. I also agree with the idea of Peak Oil. However, I've also owned a V8 Camaro since 99 . Anyway, I'm a bit confused by the bashing of the new muscle cars. Has anyone looked at the mpg ratings? No they are not as good as a focus or a prius, but they are a lot better than the 20 mpg small pickup truck that an earlier poster was bragging about. If you want to bash mpg, I think you need to stick with the full frame SUV's weighing 5k lbs or more. Besides, haven't we already determined that it takes as much oil to make the car as the car burns in its life?
