The Unicorn Corral now has a mascot!

(And a Unicorn Corral Notice on the top of every thread. I thought I should add that, since a lot of visitors coming from search engines won't know what the heck this is all about.)

Hmmm, I saw this & immediately went & checked the lists of cars in the "garage"; 28 gasoline and 16 diesel cars (not hybrids) all doing better than 50 mpg.

Furthermore, there are 110 gas, 13 diesel, and 4 hybrid cars more than 30% over EPA, as well as 13 gas and 6 diesel trucks more than 30% over EPA

If that's a "joke", I want in on it!!!
