So Tuesday when I was trying to climb up in the boat on the car dealer's lot, I could have just called you for a ride?

So let us know who that was so we can make informed decisions on who we may choose to (or not to) do business with.

They're 1550's, not 454's. They are ran at or near max power on long distance runs, so things wear quicker. It's a good idea to do what Gino did to start the season with piece of mind if you can make it happen.

Some racers rebuild after every race.
