Before they opted for the 4.3 plenty of boats had inboard 3800'* in them. The 3800 that came in that car actually, and also the car that came in the full sized version of the Grand Prix, and maybe Grand National.

Everyone calls my truck a tank and they ask how I can drive it. She'* an extended Trailblazer. I'm 19 now. I tell them "it'* simple...I know how to actually drive". And then they get mad. haha
