The purpose of the Mobil
Economy Run is to determine the mileage
potentials of American passenger
cars under the same city and country driving conditions encountered
by the average motorist.
American automobiles greatly differ in size, weight and horsepower
and cannot be expected to compete on a miles-per-gallon basis, the
field is broken into 8 competitive classes. All classes except class
A, cars must be equipped with automatic transmissions.
Mickey and his wife Judy
both drove cars in the Mobil Economy Run this was there third year.
They both took first place in there class.
