Mike - 

The other thing you didn't figure in is cost of
repairs.  Figuring that these cars are now several
years old, I anticipate several hundred - if not
thousand - dollars in repairs every year.  With
insurance costs, oil and hydraulic fluid, the V8 isn't
a smart option - it's a lifestyle choice.  BTW, I
manage much closer to 20mpg around town and on the
highway (actual milage, not indicated by computer),
but I'm very easy on the cars 1) to save gas, and 2)
to save on potential repairs.
