    Killing you would probably be the best thing. If she divorced you she would get the rusty car and all of your tools which would be cruel.

    OSHA requirements are that you have yellow striped lines on the floor all around the motor to keep small children, dogs, and cats from being sucked into the manifold when it is fired up.

    Reminds me of the day I was street drag racing my old 440 back in 1973. I was racing against a mustang and winning. Then I saw the cop. I don't know why he pulled me over I was only doing 73 in a 35 mph zone, in the wrong lane, and drunk as a skunk. The one and only time I have ever been in jail. Taught me a lesson I will never forget. Young and stupid. Racing belongs on a track and drunk driving is so so stupid!
