Are you in Daytona? I'm in St. Augustine.

I drove from St. Auggie to Montrose, PA and spent some time in Binghamton, NY while I was up there and back.

My mom drives like 60 through those mountain roads. It's crazy. I was too worried about pot holes! I used to live up there and the roads suck, especially for a lowered Mustang!

Oh yeah... And dogs.

It's also amazing that the new V6 gets 305 horses and 30+ mpg.

Turkey Rod Run is all weekend long Thanksgiving weekend and is nuts. Biggest car show on the east coast easily.

I like beer, but it fills me up too much... There is blood in my bourbon stream, yes. I've toured most bourbon factories, which end in a taste tests . I can knock out a 750ml and not get sick any more. Cheap bourbon will make me sick even, but like any drink you gotta go quality.

Amen to that. I pounded a Keystone Light last night and I felt kinda violated.. I had to shower right after to get the keystone off of me.

You will never pee so much in your life as you will when consuming that crap.

More trunk and interior space than a fox convertible and coupe lol. Hope you have some quieter exhaust cause loud exhaust for a hours tends to get old
