... a moose in heat?

HAHAHA!

What really bothers me Mike... is that I too have those same strange feelings!

Hey... if its an aluminum V6... handling might be a different story.  If not, then pull it and install a V8!

It sure is an "IN YOUR FACE " machine, especially with the side pipes and the engine half hanging out the top!

I like my approach much better...."Project Manager" for the day job, "Enthusiast" after-hours. Leave that thing out to pasture.

Take that dough and hop a flight cross yonder and we'll fix you up nice.
