The Amazingly Off Topic Thread II: OT Harder

After nearly seven thousand posts in the thread, the original Amazingly Off Topic Threadô has gotten a little...buggy. This is the replacement thread for it. Carry on off-topic-ing!

I will just say that I thought it was amusing that the '97 Cougar was described as "Grandma"... by someone that owns a Taurus.

Guess I am the proud owner of two Granny mobiles!

I drive like a grandma...until someone makes me mad and the taps are opened

The Vulcan actually has some serious pep for what it is. Especially with the ol' A/C delete modification

I'll make a video one of these days showing what a healthy Vulcan can do. It's not going to touch a Tec, but it's fun in its own way

I used to gain about 70HP switching off the AC, it's much less of a difference now with new intake manifold gaskets.

Wow, that's crazy. I'm pulling the compressor next month to replace the clutch, so I'll go back to standard, low performance mode
