.. I don't remember anything fondly from 1972 to 1976, the Dark Ages of Engines, when cars had wimpy power and dropped from 17-18 MPG down to 9-10 MPG... well, my '74 Pinto 4-banger got 15 MPG... but 3 years later the Pinto 'Pony' was at 30 MPG and more power as well and things started looking up again...
