91 white SHO+ (broken weekly) [email protected] mph 2.6 60ft
2001 Dodge Dakota R/T([email protected]) - Hedman headers, Flowmaster super 40 muffler, ventshades, 180 degree t-stat, heat range colder plugs, and 4 bald ass tires!!!!i

I've spent more money, time, and blood on this car then i care to even dream of and it's still only worth 500 bucks.Why in hell do i keep doing it? AHH that's right, for the look at the kids face in a mustang who got beat by a 13 year taurus. It makes it all worth it in the end. Now who wants to buy it.....lol
