About “1 wild truck”

i bought this truck seven yrs ago was a drag truck at one time still have the same motor that in it that i run today sometimes it scares me when i have the urge to get on it.

About “Marqinator”

One day I was going to trade my laptop for this Mercury. The kind people gave me this car for free. This car had one problem, it would have an accelleration problem, it would "bog" down, and have trouble making it up hills. I tracked down the problem to the problem to the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. Replaced it. Now Runs like a champ! 195,000 miles!
