My Opinion.

Hi, you young'uns out there buy up all those new Diesel, electric, and Hybrid vehicles; Our economy needs a boost from you. Mean-while I'll keep my, paid for, gas guzzleing, Airstream towing Lincoln. The way I see it, the only way it would be feasable to buy a new vehicle is when the one you own now will no longer serve it's purpose or can no longer be cost efficient to keep on the road.

the vic is no longer available to the public, however it is available as a fleet vehicle so taxis, cops, etc. can still get them. I do not know for how long though.

TMI on the Vic

You can still get all the Vics you want. Just talk to the Fleet Manager. That includes the P71 (police Interceptor) or any other varient. There is talk about the Vic going out of production in 2012.

the problem is that Police Depts. keep ordering them as the front wheel drive competition has higher operating and repair costs and don't last as long. Many PD's who went to the front wheel drives are going back to the Vics.

Now if they come out with a diesel Vic. I'll be the first in line for a P74 Model.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

We still see the Vics towing TT's around these parts. A few years ago there was one camped beside us. It was towing a 30' Award. The other was a newer Vic towing a 34' Bullet(with the orange connection).

Speaking of Mileage

My 2008 Diesel 2500 Silverado quad cab long bed - is getting 19.5 mpg. This is up from the 2003 Suburban 2500 gasser's 12.5 NOT towing!

It isn't a "sipper" but it's a helluva lot better and torque! OMG.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Uh...what's the difference between an "sd" card and a "SIM" card? The last, I don't know, three or four phones I have bought had them and I just took the card out and put in the new one and that was all there was to getting a new phone. Well, just about.
