    you also dont live in Minnesota.

    I would probably be willing to live in FLA for that kind of rent.

    There is nothing like waking up at 5:00am for work, only to step outside and have your balls instantly recess back into your body like you're a 5 year old.

    okay, maybe not.....what about the antagonist's car?

    [​IMG]


    Okay, not that car either....but combine the two.

    AHA. Ive found it....the love child of the 72 Firebird and the 75 corvette.

    corvette summer (naturally, i've watched it) is an ok movie.

    The best part of the car...

    Look through the passenger window, and tell me what you see there! ;)

    Nope, mine only had the Ram Air 2. That has both Ram Air2 and 3. A custom job that I've seen once, and I didn't like it then - don't like it now :)
