    Is Detroit looking for interns?
    A group of junior high school students from Missouri have built a car that gets 358 mpg.
    Under the guidance of their industrial technology instructor, Marcus Reynolds, the seventh and eighth graders from Aurora Jr. High School used their creation to win the Missouri SuperMileage Challenge, competing against teams made up of older high school students.
    The single-seat car weighs about 100 pounds and is powered by a 1.3 hp 35 cc Robin/Subaru motor that is typically used on motorized bicycles. A custom two-speed gearbox was built for the car and its streamlined corrugated plastic bodywork designed using scale models shaped in a small wind tunnel at the school.

    Great job kids! If Obama has his way you'll all get good paying jobs in 10 years at McDonalds.
