When I first got our Charger on the 350 mile trip home it did around 22 to 23 mpg, but I could really care less. I did not buy it for the MPG as much as the MPH.
With the aftermarket mods and a predator 93 CIA tune it is a blast to drive. I wish I could have gone with a SRT but the budget just would not allow it and with a baby on the way a Challenger was a hard sell to the wife.
She does love the Charger.

Chris, I fully understand your position as I have been there, done that, with the kid thing. My BIL has a Challenger and it is cool, but somehow it doesn't "do it" for me.
Jonathan, yes I am looking at a new Charger as well. As you have learned I am a "wide bodied " individual, and comfort is key as the years advance.
Decisions decisions decisions.......................

That was my very first car. I drove her 350000 kilometers in 8 years, and eventually gave as a present for my cousin on his 18th birthday, so he could commute to the university.
Since I needed a car, I got one that did fit my bill. A 1975 Ford Taunus. Zero electronics, Zero electrics (minus lights of course)
I drove it every day for about two years, and then I found that it was too good, and that was a great reason to buy a second car, so Taunus doesn't have to be on the road the whole year. Now it is just a plain nice weather/summer car that I use as often as I can.
The daily driver for the next years was found cheap, and served me for the next 3 years and about 100000 kilometers with no breakdowns whatsoever. A 1982 Ford Granada:
Since the European Granada is the best car ever made, the only reasonable thing was to get a 1976 as a stationwagon. You always need a stationcar.
Then I thought that three cars are more than enough. I was wrong, the whole fun begins when you own at least five.
1960 Cadillac Sedan DeVille. Because every man on this planet should plant a tree, build a house, and own a V8. So I got the bggest one I could find.
After the Cadillac it kind of happened that I got one of these. 1986 Citroen 2CV, 2 cylinder boxer, and as simple as a car can get.
Then I have seen an old Volvo commercial with a 1960ies Amazon, and they claimed that "you can drive it as you hate it", and that was what I wanted to find out for myself. So I just did.
You can see where this is going, at this point there were not enough Fords in my garage, so I hunted down this bad girl:
This is a 1977 Ford Granada Coupe with a V6 engine. I got it from the second owner, an old gentleman, and he following three months I transformed it to a daily driver par exelence, and I have been using it ever since every single day:
Then a dude wanted to get rid of a 1981 Ford Fiesta. Look in the papers, the car was born on 6th of May 1981. Just like myself. How could I resist?
And then there is this girl. She is one of a kind. The colors bodystyle and the engine/trans combo makes this 1977 two door the rarest Granada on this planet.
I think that is all I have in my garage today...

With 95 octane fuel now costing the equivalent of $7.50 a gallon out here it doesn't get much use
Here 95 is 2,16 dollars for a litre when it's cheap. That is 8,64 a gallon. More or less. That is why I have a V6 for every day. Gotta' drive 'em as long as one can pay for this stuff!
