I bet the neighbors really enjoyed that. (snerk)

So, if the thing doesn't blow you up or gas you to death...you'll be stone deaf in no time flat!   ::hysterical::

It does prove one thing quite clearly though, old stuff was well made and tough.  Anybody think 100 years from now anybody will fire up a Prius...or want to?

Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

My neighbor rides a Harley - he has nothing to say when I uncap the headers ;')

My neighbors (in-laws) know when I fire my Harley up. ::evilbat::

I like them, so I try to avoid early mornings or late nights. Not too hard at my age. ::unknowncomic::
