I was at the dealership and a guy was walking around my car looking it over. He finally asked "so how fast is it?". I told him "the best so far is 12.2 at 118" (turbo V6 running low boost). He said "psssh, that ain't fast" and the parts guy said "sure isn't slow, especially for a V6!"

The guy then went on to tell me about his pick-up with the 4.6 and "chip" - how he is friends with the state police and they agreed to clock him out on a stretch of I-94. At the end of the mile he was "clocked at 160 - now that's fast and just a chip needed". Parts guy and I just looked at each other and let the guy go on about his fast pick up truck.

After he left we decided he had no clue what I was talking about when I said "12.2 at 118"

Obviously, the list can go on and on.


Pick your poison.

No the best is when it's a "b" series Honda motor and it has the intake on the back of the motor by the fire wall, and the exhaust manifold on the front by the radiator. So they put a hack job auto zone specture intake on like 3" from the exhaust manifold lol. ^ like you said no heat shield. It also makes me laugh how every Honda boy I meet that builds their own motor, lasts about 5 days until it drops a valve or spins a Bering. My good friend spend a whole winter building a b20 and it ran e85 and had 13.1 compression na. It made 224 wheel hp and lasted one week before it blew up. I feel like it's a waste of money to try and make a Honda fast. Their family fuel economy cars.

Pretty ignorant thing to say, the Escape has 178HP and the Mustang has 310HP.

Also you need to learn better grammer, it's their not there.

When you start a sentence with "also," you use a comma after.
(in this instance, of course.)πŸ˜‰

Use common sense before criticizing others. πŸ™‚

It's grammar, not grammer. Also, in the context you were correcting, it's they're, not their. Sorry, couldn't resist...

Hopefully you don't mean he thought your Mustang was a Camaro?

On the other hand, if he was giving the Mustang respect while additionally stating he once had a fellow pony car, good for him! As much trash Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger owners throw at each other, when it comes down to it we are all just muscle car fans. It's nice to spread the love now and then!

Best and worst of the last 2 weeks:

Worst, 30's guy in a Prius, "Your car is really loud" "thats the BOV on the supercharger" him, "does that help gas mileage?" me, "no, worse but kick a$$ horse power (smiling big)". Him, well arent you proud, Make sure you smile when you look in the eyes of all the species your gas hog is killing!" me, (smiling huge), "Im smiling... your still here... damn"

Best. 2013 Fusion with a 60+ yr old couple in it rolls up and motions to roll window down, wife talking..."Wanna drag for beers!" me, "only if we all get one!", Her " car sounds awesome have a great night... rev it once good for us first though!"

I had some ****** in a Prius motion 55 with his hands as I passed him one time. It was in a work zone, I was in the ambulance (not going hot), everyone was passing him, aaaand he was only going 50.

I've had a few Prius drivers shake their heads at me in my Mustang, one also complained cause it was too loud.

Moral of the story, I can't stand them.

I pulled up along side a Prius listening to this old school punk song (yeah, it was kinda loud) and the woman gave me a look of disgust that I'm assuming included the song, my car, and how I look

I turned the radio down told here "I get 30 mpg" and went back to imposing my musical taste on her. Yeah I know it wasn't nice and the 30 mpg is a lie but sometimes ya just gotta do it.

Last night at my kids MMA class a dad was asking about my car and what all I had done. we were going back and forth about cars. Another dad jumped in and said sounds like you have spent allot on the car and asked how much seems silly what do you get out of it?

LOL, stupid because if you dont get it... you just dont get it. Second reason stupid. Because it is ridiculous lol, but oh well.

F that. I think I can speak for most of us here when I say we work hard to play hard. What people spend their money on is their business. Don't like it? Too bad. Oh and by the way, how much was that Prius again? Oh it was more than my mustang. Cool.

LOL. I think you both have a good point. Depends on mood how I respond to things people will say.

As for true feeling though. Hell I take care of things in life. Provide well *** a father without totally spoiling so if I wanna spend on my Stang... I will.

I have a shaved head, beard, few tattoos and dress most all days in khaki shorts and a t shirt or hoodie with flip flops. I get all kinds of loos when people ask what I do and I say VP of a marketing company with campaigns in 8 countries lol. LOVE to throw preconceived notions in peoples faces so I generally have plenty of fun with any and all tree huggers or non-car annoying people

It's unfortunately how the world seems to be going. Everyone is judgmental, jealous and outraged over... well everything, lol. I've been called a thug and millions of other things. I am a good dad, friend and man. I work hard and pay my own way while enjoying the hell out of life.

Next time just smile and remember their life is so miserable they have to use anything they can grab hold of to make them feel like they are doing better and happier than they are. Sad really.

PS. I really dig the hair.
