Default A tie with a yukon

I raced a Yukon with about a 100 more hp atleast then me the other day. I thought I'd race for fun but I actually managed to keep even with my Bonneville 95 SLE. I'm so happy

Our yukon is nice! I love it, my dad thinks it'* going bye bye before we start having lotsa problems. Rust will come, we are sure of it. A windshield company did a bad job, and the roof rusted, so they paid to get it fixed but it'lll be back, i know it. :(

So in about 2 or 3 years, when i'm on my way outta college, and my bro is in the middle, he'* probably gonna get a mid life crisis.

Our 98 yukon has a 5.7L i've seen it rated @ 330 Lb/Ft of torque.... And i love smoking mustangs in it, a chick in an expedition kept talking how it was better then our yukon. Wow it was a massacre when we finally lined up.

The newer Yukons are pretty quick for their size. They run about high 15'*.

I appreciate their engines, but I would sooner buy a neon before I buy an SUV.
Not counting trucks. I might buy certain trucks, but the thought of me driving an SUV just seems sinful. Not dissing SUVs, its just.... well you get it.

Ok, just the X5 4.6 is ok in my book.

one of my friends has one, let me tell you that thing is quick. went for a ride in it and suggested she punch it from a stop, she did. like 10 sec later she let off and i'm like "Commn, go faster" she was like "What do you want me to do, I'm already doing 110..." i'm like "no were not" then i look over at the speedo, and sure enough we are doing 110 MPH, and i'm like "oh, ****..." it felt like we were doing like 35
