Having Fun @ Work with the Big Block

Saturday I took the Purple Bird to work At the local Ford Dealer. I blasted it a little that morning, Displayed it all day then gave it hell that evening.
Here is the Video I posted on YouTube. Listen to the guys I work with.

Man it was nice looking at your car, but the best part was seeing the sun shinning! 2 more months of winter

The car did sound like a 12 gage

Thanks for the compliments....The boss was all worried that the cops were gonna show up that morning when I first unloaded it. I cranked it & scared little kids several times during the day. then at closing time we did the video.
The crew I work with is a trip!!!!
The next day the owner saw the black strips in the parking lot & asked how I was gonna clean it up ...I said I wasnt.... but I was gonna submit a advertizing bill for the race fuel that I used $10 a gallon lol!!!!!!
