      On this Earth day Autoweek measured a 1970 Boss Mustang sitting, with the gaskets etc of the day, and it emits more HC when not running than a new 410hp 5.0 does at 70mph.  Doncha hate that?

        a car uses in it's entire lifetime.   I've arranged my life so that I don't have to drive I walk, bicycle or ride bus but if a person must drive taking good care of an older car is better than buying a new car that has used much carbon in it's creation.
