    Even though I'm English, I like French toast.

    I got tired of waffles when I was 8 years old... esp. when they brought out those "brown" Eggo waffles... like eating tree bark. Even worse with corn syrup cuz my parents wouldn't buy Aunt Jemima.

    I hate French cars. They all look like they were designed backwards, like the car designer was holding his doodle pad in front of a mirror when he drew them. Pug ugly like a foo-foo poodle haircut. Why do their wheels have 3 lug nuts?

    Belgian waffles are even better than French toast. I still don't like Eggos.

    Someone at work recently bought a restored Citroen 2CV. Three lug nuts. With the odd shape of the car and weird suspension geometry (apparently they lean the wrong way when you go around a corner)... it's a bit of a nonsense car. I guess three lug nuts is the absolute minimum you'd need to mount a wheel on a car cranked by a 20HP motor..

    Oh yeah... the original questions was...

    200 or 250 cubes?... mine is a 200 cube six and the mileage is pretty good, so if my engine is 1/2" shorter and 50lbs lighter than a 250 is there much difference in power to weight for the car? Any difference at all? Does it matter? Do I get 1 MPG better? If I get the other car next week with a Vee-8 in it will I forget about the six entirely?

    I dont care for eggos either. Like I said: tiny improvement from a 250.Not worth writing home about.the V-8 wont work as hard to push the car as a 6 popper does.Less work means more efficiency...
