I want you to sit there and tell me you don't want to smell the whiff of chowdah as a white Ranger that sounds like this whips by:




I'm sorry, but that freaking Italian eargasm gets the blood flowing to the extremities for me.

You lost me at "whiff of chowdah"...

He's used to that... he's got a 2.9L and a mopar.

Another "miss" for you. Spontaneous or expected vehicle combustion is unique to GM products.

I'm pretty sure if there was a fan on that you'd have a hard time standing up in the flow. I haven't done any calculations but I bet the fan tip would be traveling over 60mph.
