    I love my V8

    Yeah, I just fired up the 1977 F-150 for the first time in a month. I had forgotten how much I love that car. Who else has an automobile with a V8?

    It was a 460 when I first bought it. There's a 351W in there now.

    My bimmer has the 4 litre V8 in it. I can be going up a 6% grade and floor it and you can feel yourself being pulled back into the seats. I can do 100 without even feeling it.

    I have had a 71 Torino with a BOSS 302 (pulled out of a mustang). And a 69 Cougar with a 351W in it. Both were real POS cars but the engines more than made up for it.

    I also had a 65 and a 69 Mustang but both of them had straight sixes in em. They looked great but the lack of engine had me wishing for a V8. The 65 was stolen and the 69 I sold off when I had my son for a more economical car.

    I thought V8 was a drink - haha. Shows how much I know about vehicles!

    Does it count if I have a V8 too? In my fridge? :shocked:

    Well, I love V8 Splash too, so I suppose it does count.

    It's the first joke that I've actually thought of that no one else said before me... if that makes sense.

    I used to own this bad boy. Sold it because it was just too much financial strain to keep...

    No joke, I wouldn't want to have to pay the insurance on that.

    Sure, but you have to drive like a little old lady to get it:laugh:

    I can have 8 cylinders if I put my motorcycle in the bed of the truck.

    It was outrageous. I was under my parents' policy, with my mom as the primary driver and my dad as the legal owner -- but with a 23 year old male on the police, as well as my two brothers (21 and 17 respectively), the insurance was out of this world expensive...

    But it is purrrrty! I actually saw it in town the other day... the guy to whom we sold it lets his 16-year old granddaughter drive it.
