When the light turned green, I eased her off the line, wound her out in first, power shifted into second, spun like mad which induced wheel hop, proceded to break the motor mount, then the fan ate the radiator! My buddy was in the lane next to me egging me on! It sucks, but I would do it again!

Thanks goodness it's a truck and you didn't trash your freshly painted hood!

My freshly painted engine compartment looked like crud! Antifreeze and pieces of radiator core everywhere. It's all clean now! Except there's a big gap where the radiator goes! I've got the word out with the local Ford boys that I need a radiator. Steve I'm glad it wasn't my Stang, or like you said it would've got the hood too!

Yeah, I dented the original hood on my Sprint with the fan once when I blew an engine mount.
