    Not any more. Providing for a family realigned my priorities.

    Still an accomplishment to have owned both cars none the less.

    I don't know why a prospective wife would make a case for getting rid of your car just due to marriage...maybe due to children, if you needed something bigger for trips, etc. But then, an SRT-8 vehicle probably isn't the ideal choice as a principle family hauler. An EPA mileage of 11/14 would start to sting after a few long trips.

    Yea, I meant that she would probably want something like an SUV or a minivan or something a little bigger/safer than a car. I don't know. But you're right, an SRT8 would not be an ideal family car. But the gas mileage wouldn't be any worse than a big 'ol Suburbasaurus or Tahoe or Escalade ya know

    True..I guess I was thinking of our minivan, which somehow manages to break into the low 20's on long trips.

    I've only come across low 13's stock. It has a lot of power, but 4000 lbs isn't easy to get going.

Sure I beat him off the line but man once we started going through gears he started pulling like a mother ****er.
    Mods?

    It claims 11 mpg. That does not sound like a fun bill to pay.

    His car is a fair bit lighter than yours.

    In elementary school, they had these toilets that had the old school highrise reservoirs that gave you that serious power flush. My friend Marvin was the only guy who could actually piss up into them.

    I just make it a point not to race high-rise vehicles in a straight line.

    That is a possibility I've considered, but it still doesnt make me think the SRT-8 is teh slow.
