Not like most 5.0s can do it and not feel like they are gonna rip to

Actually, as crappy as my pinto looks,  still don't like it when it gets
worse.   I would prolly have a fit if it got dinged.

Also, I jus love it when Im at the track and people come up to me and say
things like "Thats only a 4 cyclinder?????!!!!!"  How many people are
impressed that your 5.0 huffer runs 12's?  

I like having a car that runs 13's, is streetable, and only cost me about
800 dollars total.  How fast did your cobra run with 800 in MODS?(that
includes things like tires, too).

I like having all factory parts on my car.  The only thing aftermarket in
the WHOLE drivetrain is a hurst shifter, and a summit mini spool..and some
aftermarket cheesy Wells ignition stuff.  But it even runs Ford oil and a
Motorcraft filter.  O yeah, it has a K&N...EVERYTHING ELSE IS FACTORY.
And my car weighs jus shy of 2400..so its not THAT lite.

Its cool to go to the street races and have assholes like you laff at me.
Your ignorance shows when I take yer money.

its nice to not have to pay out the ass when the car breaks.  I can get a
spare anything cheaper than you can.

Im not sayin my car is great, but I am not sittin here tlakin about how
your Cobra is a dime a dozen Cookie cutter car, that needs to get mods out
the ass to run 12's, etc.
