Who said a 3800 couldn't have guts....
Yeah i KNOW they have guts... thats cause i saw them all spewed out over the highway in front of a Park Avenue yesterday.
Apparently this woman driving had a blind spot (on the drivers side) the size of an 18 wheeler cause thats what she merged right into. Her car spun into the wall (on a bridge) being pushed sideways by the semi. The semi did her the favor of removing and disassembling the 3800 for her so the wrecker service wouldnt have to go through the trouble... courteous semi, huh?

Do me a favor fellas, KNOW your engine has guts, but dont let anyone ever have to see them :P
See what I am talking about? GOOFBALL!!!

like 102ish, not real sure, the needle was comin back over 100 when i let off, it was gettin scary, the roads around here are crap too, hittin potholes goin 100=not coolness. i need to hit the limiter one day but im afraid ill get caught and its just not worth it.and it is kinda scary, feels like drivin on ice.

With the only difference being, this one was built from wrecker parts in a garage in Canada.

I had all two of my gauges pegged to the right on the Florida Turnpike last month. For a short(very short) time my Speedo was at the max @ 85mph and my gas read "F". It doesn't get any better than that.
