minivan drag racing

Paul Smith is a high-profile inductee into the school of minivan drag
racing. He picked up his van in 1999 for the princely sum of $800 and it
is now the quickest and fastest four cylinder minivan in the country
(12.65 seconds at 105.44 MPH)!

There are a lot of 10 second mini-vans.

SMACK SMACK SMACK on the other side of your head for getting jazzed
over *any* minivan in whatever lame group you were in.

Don't encourage him. Minivans are the spawn of soccer moms mating
with the Devil known as Lee Iacocca.

I'm not Jazzed, just busting a friends balls...

That was supposed to be a private email (DAMN this friggin Mozilla
Thunderbird) to a friend.

I'm a life long through and through Ford Nut. But I'm not so myopic as
to believe nothing could ever beat any Ford... I get so tired of this
friends rhetoric about his ride, he is unrealistically over the top and
believes nothing can give his second string 5.0 stang a run for it's
money...

The non Ford Mini van was the perfect illustration of his under
performing ride. Kinda like the time I convinced a childhood
bodybuilding friend that his head was too small... Well not quite as
cruel, at least this friend can do something about his Mustang. :-)

It seems just about anything can be hopped up these days. But if you
really want to screw with him, tell him to read the 385 forum at
Network54.

This dude gets my award for originality, for sure! He's running quicker
than my 400+ hp 66 Fairlane (12.74@110) ever did...

I am very much impressed.
