Corvettes(6 speed) already have very impressive gas mileage for what they are. I would be impressed to see if they could push to the 40mpg mark.

It's not an impressive thing just for shits and giggles, but a requirement for everyone to meet a minimum fuel economy, or the company receives a really big fine. At some point, they have to.

I want to sell my extra PS3. It is the 80GB (fat) model. It includes 2 controllers (1 dual shock, 1 regular), power cable, generic HDMI cable, charging cable, and I might throw in MW2 since I don't need it.

What do you guys think it is worth?

$150 maybe? Is that too high/low? Everything works fine.

When you reach boss status like I have, buying the same thing multiple times is every day practice.

Like the silly people that couldn't afford a regular corvette would get a V6 version, however I don't think GM should make it. I always want the corvette to have a V8, and with how much power and gas mileage they've been able to get out it is possible for them to reach that mark.
