About “thunderturd super poop”

got the car on 10-7-10 traded a v8 kit for a fiero for this car to be my year round daliy driver with 121000 miles on it. when i saw it in craigslist i just had to get it. it has the same interior as my cougar had and being that it has a 5 speed it was hard to pass up and the fact that theres not a lot of rust. Its by far the fastest winter car i ever had
traded the car on 5-15-11 for a 1994 honda del sol 18mpgs just wasnt cutting it
