138. You look look forward to roads with 45MPH and 35MPH speed limits since it allows you to "legally" travel at a nice fuel efficient speed without the "peer" pressure from other drivers to at least drive at the speed limit.

139. You curse when you look in your rear view mirror and see another car coming up behind you on a two lane road without a passing zone.

On 136, I think Compaq's point is that he had a nice comfortable car that got good mileage, but once he got involved in gas saver's, he decided that his car just wasn't good enough and so he went through the hassle to unload it and find something more acceptable. I don't think he'd have probably done that if it weren't for gassaver's.
Gary is right. I unloaded a comfortable, easy to drive, automatic with 4 doors for a every bump felt in the butt, hard to drive, manual with 2 doors.

The seats are stiff, the car is stiff, and so is the tranny. The only thing the altima was better was at handling, i swear. Surprising as it sounds.

141 You spend $32K for a diesel truck that gets an incredible 19 mpg highway. <slaps forehead>

Basjoos: These two are pretty darn funny, largely because it's so true. Thanks

Man, I don't know if the price for this one is worth it. Highly Questionable

143. 139 happens three mornings out of five with the exact same vehicle approaching from the rear, you maintain the speed limit, and get passed despite the illegality every time.

144. You learn not to care about 143 because you would rather have that guy in front of you than behind, and are relieved that he at least has the courtesy to find an alternative to tailgating.

You've been hiding in the back of my car, haven't you?

145. To prevent the cursing caused by 139 you tear off your rearview mirror.
145a. You also do this to reduce aero-drag.
