Can you believe someone actually asked if my Bonne had a 3.1? I've never been so insulted

nYeah they are really pain in a$$ remeber changing plugs on my corsica. I hope they were not stuck in like in my corsica. The one in my corsica looked like the orginial plugs it was 94 with 250,000 on. I only drove for 9 months. Rod shot though the motor. But only paid $200 for it
