Iola 2009.... there was a guy with a red Malibu with the same style blower right behind us but his car was overheating, when it had 2 radiators.....
My camera gives this truck's engine no justice.....he was leaving and we asked him to rev the truck up....
so he did and then he peels out at the last second. my camera had no batteries left in it(power was drained)
