Vehicle Description

As I walk around this car I am thinking WOW what a lady this car is!!!
Beautiful 2-tone green paint , great lines , beautiful sweeping chrome bumpers and perfectly proportioned stainless trim that compliments the very slight expanse to the rear quarters ..Ok Ok so it is not a Corvette or a Mustang or a Charger.... But it has great lines and is genuinely a "pretty car". if you were the type of person to actually pin a name on this car you might call it Rita , or Marilyn , maybe even Lucille not Lucy...... certainly not Lucy, it is just not elegant or aristocratic enough for a car of this stature......
........But as I get closer to this little sweetheart I begin to notice things that protrude where there shouldn't be any thing sticking up at all ..... Wait what is that sticking straight up out of the tunnel hump that doesn't belong on a Lady!!!!
OMG....There is a B&M shifter sticking out of the floorboard....... My curiosity has been tweaked, in fact it has been played like a Banjo......... My desire to know makes me lift her hood to reveal a big ass Hemi, my reaction is instant Holy sh_t this car has been altered, it ain't no nice Rita any more it has transformed into a badass RICKY or from an elegant Lucille To Lucky Lucy the gangster chick with no manners whatsoever...! From the Outside this car appears to be the sedate and dependable chariot that carries the beautiful silver haired lady that lives around the corner and goes to church meetings three or four times a week ...
........But there lurks a demon under the hood !!! During the full moon this sedate and dependable chariot transforms itself and the beautiful silver haired lady driver ....... Into a gas guzzling,fuel thirsty, fire breathing, evil superduo......... Something tells me that something bad is about to happen .......... Go ahead and unleash your demons ..!!!!!! Go Honda Hunting !!!!!!
Well this car has been through a major transformation , but she or he is still extremely cool and I would drive it anywhere and probably beat you there...... It is sporting a 392 Chrysler Hemi. ( the previous bad ass hemi to the much feared 426) This is the motor that demanded respect and struck fear in the hearts of the old school drag strip kings.... There were a ton of ford and Chevy converts out there when this motor hit the street....... Dr. Mopar was BORN !!!!!
