Counting the GM stockers wheels and tires and the Savini wheels and tires and my new Forgeline wheels and tires and deducting the selling prices I got for the Savinis and GMs I'm still over 10k

Yes, but according to the Bible and our wedding vows we are ONE. So by default, I work out too.

I love that logic... wait... so does that mean you've posed scantly clad all over your car?

and that extra $90.00 is both of your expense...

i didn't have to 'try' to impress you
that & the whole reason i was out there required i drive the car - it saved over $100 in gas while also allowing me to make good time (which i really needed)


standing by...
hopefully you can stand by for a long time - i'd rather keep this engine good enough to put in the truck when the stroker goes in

you have no idea how true that is...
yeah i do
...

you need to stop looking at PQ's asterisk so much
it's like a train wreck... you don't wanna look but you just can't help it

purple... interesting matches your fog lights...

I will say that I was impressed... that you brought the vette over the truck.

I should have driven to pick up the car tho... since I knew where we were going anyway... oh well, maybe next time.

why not drop a 6.0 in the truck? with a turbo?

exactly! i always quote-reply with purple
and maybe next time
because that's a ton extra monies & parts that i ain't got. putting the stroker in the car gives me an LS1 just sitting around to either use or sell, so why not make a mild cam build for the truck with it? i can reuse all my accessories, intake, fuel system, exhaust, etc. then sell the 5.3

I'm using this logic. Starting now. Although, my vows were in German so I'm not exactly sure what I agreed to.
