Ok I have a question for ya, what do you do for a living that you can afford all this crap? I was under the impression you were a college student or something to that effect.

Agreed, but then you can usually finance a new car, whereas financing parts for an old car is kinda tough (unless you like buttloads of credit card debt, which I don't)

Re: Z beating a Saleen? Not anytime soon.

Maybe it was a Saleen Explorer. Heheheh. Seriously though, it was probably a regular mustang with some Saleen body kit parts on it or something. I agree there's probably not a normally aspirated L-6 powered street driveable Z in the world that'll beat a real Saleen. A high strung turbo, or a well built V-8 that can actually get the power to the ground could possibly do it, but no way in **** is a N/A L-6 gonna do it.

Re: Impressions

> Hehehe.

Actually I do a pretty mean impression of a horse with stripes.

And when I say crap I do mean only the best crap.

Sounds like it's time for some more network certifications for me then. (Maybe I should ditch the wife too now that I think about it....)
