Yeah, it is alright! It's called-

Ganja
Maui-wowee!!
Mary Jane
4-2-0
Wacky weed
Hemp

and about a thousand other street names! Wink

All three of those 350's must be FOR SALE!

Not on it's best day, but you go ahead, son. I'm guessing that in addition, none of these gents are 16 years old and getting this kind of mpg either, eh?


I did neglect to mention earlier that it IS a very nice lookin' truck! And for the $$, seems like a good buy (except for the care and feeding part!)
