Reality is an unknown concept to this guy and his several siblings.

ummm... sure, but it'll just be my 12 second tow vehicle for my (possible) 81 mercury crappy RS, which IF I get it will have a turbo 300 straight six, or a twin turbo 4.2 v6 with 3.8 heads.

I STILL think i can go 9's and use it as a weekend toy.....
btw, there's only one me, but there is another troll around, possibly with split personalitys, I heard it might be 90, but I ain't sayin anything about anyone, and it might not be him...... pepole like to talk.

Um trying to stay open minded but if you want to run nines.....buy yourself something you can ahndle....i think a nine second car for someone of your "EXPERIENCE" will get away from you and youll end up in the wall.start low and get some drive time under your belt or your gonna get hurt real quick,thats just my two cents,

Funny how people think its easy to drive 9 sec. runs....dude have you ever even driven 12's or 11's? You'll hold on tight for sure. 10 secs already you'd pee your pants, seriously....
