What's 1000 miles on the car? If you use it a lot anyway, 1000 miles won't add much to your yearly usage. If you only drive a couple g's a year and want to keep the mileage low, then take a different vehicle, either rental (cost more) or the Toyotee.

I struggled with the same question once, just once, but took the car anyway for an 1800 mile trip. Enjoyed it more than a rental, for sure!

If you were going to Philly or someplace high crime, then take a rental car.

Take the Stang!!!

Well, I took the stang and knock on wood I had no mechanical issues. However some road debris did hit my windshield and the top of my car (leaving a little scratch)

Also, I am happy to report I received around 19.8 MPG (according to the computer) in and out of boost. Not bad.... :P

Good for you. Driving the Mustang makes any trip much more enjoyable. If I knew I was going to encounter bad weather or bad roads, like dirt or gravel, I'd drive my wife's car.
