Red Baron is on a distinguished road
Default 5.slow

ill start off by saying wednesday night was a good night for the red baron. i was bored sittin at home so decided to go for a cruise about 9 oclock, the weather was great, nice and cool the bonny was luvin it. on my way down town i saw up a couple grand ams goin at it for a few lights, i just wanted to join the fun, but when i flew by them in the turning lane they decided to split (think i scared them?).So i went for my cruise down town on my way home pulled up next to a gm truck he raced me and smoked me. so we get a red i was kinda upset that i got beat by a truck so i figured id race him this time.(had to do the ol look around make sure no cops). I see two cars back a 90 something mustang (wishing he was in the trucks place) me and the truck race on the green i got ahead of him about 1/2 a car lenth before we were through the 4 lane intersection. we hit another red now with the mustang behind the truck (mustang revvin) i let the truck race him self again, i wanted to try the stang we eventually get next to each other doin a little side by side racin we finally get a red light he starts revvin the 5.0 so i whistle back a little with the sc. light turns green we stay pretty even through the six lane intersection they i hit second perfect shift and i start pullin ahead and continued to do so for about a city block, hoping to give the guy another shot he turns into the tim hortons parking lot, *** in hand.

These being the red baron'* first kills

What year of 5.0 was it? notchback or hatchy? and was it auto or 5spd? I need to know these things because I am probably the only ford fan on this site!! If it had mods then it would have ended in shame but i guess your car is */c. Wanna try my bros 5.0??

One marketing strategy I'll never understand. Cars that had a legacy of big V8'*(Mustang, F-bird, Camaro) and then reintroduce them with 6'*. They give them all the styling of a FAST car and they end up being slow. If I buy a sports car, it is not going to be a Slowstang(V6). If you want a sporty car but want some economy, get a import and save yourself a lot of cash.
