Not just weird-looking....they can breathe atmospheric are, walk on their pectoral fins (fins that have independant movement and a skeletal structure not unlike coelacanths), armoured scales that hinge rather than overlap....all sorts of things that make them cool and unique.

They are suggesting 2008 or 2009 for the VW (I think that Ford or Hinda has one out next year)....it is supposed to have insane gas economy....like 70 MPG.

Do you think if you get your mini van fixed (no clue on how old it is or whats wrong with it) it could make it that long?

Should do....she's only 7ish, and with only 240,000KM....with proper work, she will manage another 5-6 years and a good 120,000-180,000km more. Besides the gasket issue I am currently having, she has good maintenance and plenty of fresh replacement parts.
