Ford F-350 Pick up almost kicks my ass!
Okay, so I'm out Xmas shopping minding my own business when a HUGE Ford pickup truck pulls up next to me at a light. I notice that the badge says F-350 and what catches my eye is that it also says "Diesel Tweaks" or something very similar. I thought this was odd on an otherwise plain looking truck, but didn't give it too much of a thought, until... The light turns green and not expecting a truck to be dragging with me, the guy is keeping even with me! I had done a "normal" GTO partial throttle take off which is usually enough to be across the street before the other guy has moved 3 feet. "WTF?!!?" I think and floor it just in time to have a very nice tire squeal as the car shifted and I left him in the dust.
NowI know back in the early 70's Chevrolet made a 455 short bed that was the fastest US vehicle - this due to a loop hole in the emissions laws that trucks had little if any controls and before catalytic converters this made all the difference in the world. But hey, those days are gone! So what's with "Diesel Tweaks"? Are these some super-sleeper trucks or what?
