The greenest cars are the cars we leaf behind.
The fuel efficient cars shown at the Denver Auto Show this weekend will never be as green as the leaf-covered 1976 Mercury Capri II shown in the picture above. And alternative fuels and hybrid technology will never match the low energy-impact scores of Denver's parade of parked classics...

Its important to have a nature friendly car so it doesn't have any contribution at the pollution. Thanks for posting this.

Where there is snow, there is also usually salt on the roads, which is also highly corrosive. Always wash down your car when you have used it in snow to remove the salt and never put on your car cover until this has been done.

no joke - old cars that get good mileage and are kept in good running condition save the tremendous amount of energy that manufacturing and shipping any new car entails; that and driving a lot less are the best ways to reduce the energy impact of automobiles, short of not driving at all
