...for a guy who was head of GM Performance, I expected
him to a lest get down on it a some point, and explain the
joys of handling a rocket, but maybe he's not as crazy
as the people here....

thanks for sharing...

Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business, frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite. - Ronald Reagan

Wow, that too! I was also thinking that the cameraman needed to quit doing those low shots too. And vacuum that damn carpet while you're at it!

They stood out like someone had inserted a naked woman on horseback into the video! At least that's how they jumped out at me. Us waxers don't miss stuff like that!
