Old thread died. Foamers are on my case to make ar new thread.
Dicking around the midwest in a borrowed International 9400i while I look around for a truck to take the place of yellow baby jesus during her partial restoration.
I've been pulling a power only trailer, and it is kind of fun. Delivered some bubble wrap yesterday, and I'll be pulling a load of whey powder before I deliver the trailer for a long life of hauling furniture. This might be something I do more regularly during the slow season for flatbeds, particularly round trips. I'm also submitting a bid to join a contract for FEMA relief in Texas and Oklahoma, because why the fuck not.
As always, questions are welcome and expected.
AMERICA FUCK YEAH

Europoors when are you going to accept the dominance of america sports cars? The Corvette ZR1 and Dodge Viper shit on their European counterparts such as the Ferrari 458, McLaren MP4, Lamborghini Gallardo, and the 911 Turbo, yet costing only half the price. Lol even around Laguna seca the Corvette Z06 was faster then the Mclaren MP4, and the Viper ACR dominates the nurburgring. A 30k Mustang GT can go around a track just as fast a 60K M3, yet the mustang also achieves more torque and much better fuel economy, what even more embarrassing is the fact that the M3 has worst fuel economy then both the Camaro SS and Dodge Challanger SRT8, look at link to prove it, eurofags when are you just going to admit defeat and quit talking shit that you can't even back up.

ITT: Europoors defending cars they will never own
Laguna Seca Lap times, Americans shiting on the competition
Ford Mustang GT disgracing the BMW M3
M3 has much worse fuel economy then the 3 American muscle cars

>Chevrolet has officially dropped power figures for the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The sports car's 6.2-liter V8 can crank out up to 460 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Most of the torque, up to 316 lb-ft, is available from just 1,000 rpm, and wide open the LT1 V8 produces just 5 lb-ft less than the outgoing LS7 in the Z06.
Not bad, Chebby, not bad.
