Today has been a happy day - Forza 4 will include George



Quote:
Sometimes good things come in small packages. The Aygo is very, very small. So does this mean it’s very, very good? It’s clear there’s one thing it excels at… soccer (or the game our European friends call football). The agile little Aygo is famous for being the star of an impromptu 5-on-5 pickup game on BBC’s TopGear, clad in sports uniform livery and played on an asphalt pitch. The cheeky stunt was not only fun, it did a good job of showing off the Aygo’s dynamic personality. With a happy face and neat detailing, like the multi-element rear lamps, it’s a cheerful car for happy urbanites. And the motor may have just three cylinders, but it’s an eager partner in any urban adventure, even if those adventures don’t involve punting an oversized soccer ball towards a giant goal—although with the free DLC car soccer environment, you can do that too.

Finally getting around to helping my 5th veh. down the ladder get a new rear tire, and then having a few days to enjoy it before seasonal rains.

Finding (a couple of weeks ago) that my '87 CRX is still capable of 60.24 mpg even though it was crossing Wyoming (higher elevations) with the interesting mountain grade 85 octane., and heavily loaded with all my food, and water for a week's road trip.

3,200 miles, Vancouver, WA to Chimmney rock, Nebraska, up to Cody,UP the mountain, north to Deer Lodge, MT., on to the car museum at Deer Lodge, Mt., then to Lolo Pass from Missoula into Idaho, (great sports car, and bike road for Carver's)
then loafed through eastern OR., and WA. home.

Averaged over 53mpg. mostly using scenic non mpg. type roads.

Carry my own drinking water as the minerals in mountain states non too tasty!

Lowest fuel price observed was in Wyo. at $3.43.9!

PS. Does anybody here still enjoy Canyon carving while ALSO balancing trying to keep the mpg up?

A small car makes that chore? much easier to keep a racer's line balanced w public roads.
