Looks to me like 0, 3.5, 7.5, and 12.

I decided to find a cheap car with a manual trans as a throwaway practice car, so I could learn how to drive a stick, and perhaps practice some hypermiling techniques, and resell it for parts if I break it, so I don't end up spending money on a good car and end up killing it. I put up an ad on Craigslist, and got an email back about a 1996 Ford Aspire 4 door for $700. I decided to check on how it would match the template.

The rear hatch is obviously too steep, but the rest of the roof matches up pretty good. I think it might be a good candidate for a plexiglass kammback. And since it's OBD2, I'd be able to get a scangauge and actually test the effectiveness of different mods!
