The first four apply to me and I can say too much horsepower isn't a problem with my car. The horsepower it has is on it last legs.

1. The emissions test guy starts laughing as soon as you pull onto the rollers.

----Who need's stinkin' piston rings. This baby's got 286,000 orignal miles on her and she never been touched my a wrench.----

2. You can't drive your car in the rain.

---Cowl rust -- Yeah, Baby! Free foot washing during rain storms.

3. Your 'significant other' is afraid to drive your car.

---Call it four wheel drums in need of a rebuild.

4. You are afraid to drive your car.

---I wasn't afraid till I went to hit the brakes and did a "Fred Flintstone" through the rusty floor pan, but what heck that worked better than the stock drum brakes. Call it a free brake upgrade!!!

My car already has so much horsepower any more might split her in two. Well that's if the rusty hulk doesn't split into just sitting in the driveway first.

RestoRod (aka "RustoRod" don't tell anyone)

P.S. Actually, as of this weekend my baby is "Rust Free" and I am ready for "too much horsepower."
