This is lame beyond belief, Wack Willy. With this "logic", jerks
like you could pound a group with BS facts and sit back waiting for
other people to rush in for damage control. What the hell is wrong with
you?

Don't take the high road with me; you've got too many recent
comments involving homosexual oral copulation and posterior romance for
that crap to wash.

I have a serious question for you. What are you on? No, seriously.
How do we know he doesn't fly a P-51 to work every day? You are the one
who opined about what his nym means, and now you're coming up with
psychotic crap for screwing up info about a car model that *you* own.

You are one very sick person. And from what I can see, getting worse
by the day.

Go suck on your 352-inch Shelbys, Mr. Correct.

I don't even have to try, your psychotic expulsions flame themselves.

Have you ever heard of self-parody, Limpy? It goes something like this:
Poster no. 1 posts a photo of a 38 year old car and says he knows no
details. Poster no. 2 replies that the car might have such-and-such an
engine, because that was an available option that year. In fact,
such-and-such an engine was only available for six months of the
succeeding model year. Poster no. 3 knows this, and proceeds to scour
Poster no. 2 with this:

"Let's try something that actually makes sense. Neither the 427 nor the
GT-E were available in 1967. If you knew anything about Cougars, you
would see the 6.5 liter badge behind the front wheel well, and figure

"You are WAY out of your league here. '67 427's. BWAHAHA!!"

A day later he adds this:

Gosh, Limp Rick, I wonder why no real gearheads hang around "your"
newsgroup? I can't wait to see how many web-based boards give you the
boot when you pull crap like this.

And why are you (1) cross-posting to RAMFM, and (2) violating your own
"freeze" on me?

Somebody send me a sound clip from the Twilight Zone theme. I need
to play this when I read Willy's posts.

(1) Because I want them to see the extent of your wackoness,
including "explaining" what was posted, which was already apparent in
*my* reply, and (2) see (1).
