Re: Laugh at High Gas Prices With a 282-MPG VW

Can it fit my golf clubs though?

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

Re: Laugh at High Gas Prices With a 282-MPG VW

The real question though, is how many ponies under the hood, and how many more could we get out of it? Like the seats, they look kind of like my Aeron at work
