    Default So I got an American iron with 400 ft/lb !!

    For those of you that saw my FB post. Pls don't say what car it is. trahq'ers are a jealous bunch. Want to keep them guessing for a while

    So I just got this American Iron today. With 400 ft/lb !! That's more than 3 Miata combined !! More than any cars I've owned...

    I can feel my chest hair growing now !! Going to mall now to buy some gold chains. I will be hanging around T1 guys on track from now on... Partying with whiskey, 355 tires, hookers and blow instead of organic smoothie, 205 tires, salads and sausage fest with Miata crowds.

    Congrats on the new car - and chest hair! Be advised that T1 drivers have more back hair than chest hair. Truly manly, Sean Connery x 23!

    This thread should be epic!

    William, my cultured friend. Picturing you saying "hookers and blow" could be the highlight of my weekend.

    Many thanks.

    William, William, William... the Corvette T1 Mafia is very proud of you even though we don't yet know what you got. Hopefully it is a Corvette.

    But it is very evident that these manly ways are new to you. Lesson #1 - you don't go to the mall to buy your gold chains. The mall is a destination for 14 year old valley girls and Miata racers.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    Oli is right. Comparison shop in the jewelry district downtown where they sell gold by the gram. And if you are not in a rush, check out some pawn shops; and don't be bashful about asking for the weight of the piece(s). You may also want to check with Emilio on this.

    Regardless, you really do need to spill the beans and post some photos.

    Not Tesla S
    Not Fox body - they aren't 400LB/ft

    It is a bone stock car.

    Not a Vette and I wouldn't settle for anything under 400ft/lb

    Too many guesses.

    This is a one-question-at-a-time elimination game.

    So . . . does it have 415 lbs torque?
