EVERYONE knows what my car'* got under the hood when I take off...she SOUNDS awesome, just doesn't have real great pickup

Dang I love my car regardless And now that she'* got the new canister purge valve, she runs great and sounds INCREDIBLE!!!

But yeah, when I had the Buick, my passengers used to think I had a V8, the pickup and the speed that thing would reach are amazing!

I'll have to try that
You guys let other people drive your car?!?!
I don't even let my fiancee drive my Bonnies..... the only other person I let take my Bonnies anywhere is my father. RCMP.... so you know he knows how to drive!

i like flooring it and seeing the front end rise a few degrees. The exhaust note on these cars is one of the reasons i dont think ill ever get an aftermarket exhaust. Im in love with that tone. Sometimes when i get home ill open the window and sit and let it idle.

People over here never think it'* a V8. Most of my friends know a lot about cars, so they know its a 3800. Other friends don't think twice about my car cause they don't care.
