SLANT 6 Mopar or No Car!
Mopars and very attractive women.....Mopars Kicking ASS! What more can you
If you like what you hear, come and visit me at CDBaby! In case anyone is
curious, yes, I've owned tons of Mopar products! There is a SRT4 in my
driveway right now. I've had Coronet R/T's, Challenger RT, Demon's, 300's,
SRT8's, I love em all! And I have no problem with other cool Musclecars.
I even own a Buick with a V6 that is fairly quick......
However....I loves me Mother Mopar!
