I miss 100 mpg & lean burn. (Sniffle.)

If you build an extension to your 20' flatbed so that you can haul two more soy bags (about 4' cubed) on the back instead of simply starting another row on top... because it's more aero that way.

Your car looks like it is due for being scrapped but at 19 years and 250000 miles it is in better condition mechanically than most cars on the road to the point that Main/What a Piece of Junk - Television Tropes & Idioms this trope fits.
