    Toasted by an 95 Explorer

    So this explorer paces me to match my stop at a stop sign. then proceeds to floor the poor truck for all its worth just so he can get ahead of me and then make a right in front of me.

    If only my wife wasn't in the car...

    But on a serious (semi) note some of those crappy older ones can be quick. The ones that come with the 5.0 5 speed (of course after modding) can do some pretty good times.

    Somewhere on a Ford Exploder forum there's a poor, stupid man posting about how he killed a WRX.

    I find it amusing that sometimes people will be racing you, while you're driving just moderately...and it takes a moment to realize that the screaming, grinding noise in your right ear is the '87 Sentra with a 4' wing next to you redlining its poor motor.

    well...not entirely correct. i've driven the 5.9L JGC and yes, its hauls major a$$. The torque is like 345ft-lbs or something but it tapers off VERY quick. i believe 0-60 times were in the 7s back in 1998. great number for a SUV, but it aint gonna own any stock rex.

    you know, you just reminded me of something......I swear, in my sti if i'm out driving alone...NO one revs or wants to run or anything but as soon as the wife and kids hit the car everyone wants some.....I should just get that old Van Halen song and have it cued up for play....lol........talk about self control, trying to hold back from all these gutless morons who only want to play when they see the car seats occupied, pretty lame
