Everyone admires this car for its beauty, it’s history and legend. OG’s will reminisce and tell you about the one they (or a friend). You’ll be tempted to open the hood to show off all the power breathing beneath. Go ahead and do it. Then, after you finally make your getaway you’ll just have to show off by hitting the gas and leaving them in that awesome sound of true MUSCLE!!! They’ll love you for it.
