Worst hurt I've ever had put on me was by a 252 cobalt with a 502 and a procharger. I thought we were even until he finally gave it some gas. Beat me with 5 people and a Golden Retriever in it.!

Nice boats, quite a few of them around IA, and some of them are sleepers...!

Saw this boat at CPR at LOTO this spring waiting for the new, INSANE power!
he should name it "Fountain Hunter" as he like to pull up beside fountains (others too) and leave them sitting! Insane boat, a real cool sleeper.

Bad example, your gonna start a fight that the cobalt is better balanced than the cig.

OR
The reason you heard it going by full out is because the owner of Cobalt or may be his son have the horrible job of getting to run that baby all summer and the goal is to try and break something. Wish I could get a new Fountain each year and run the pi$$ out of it so they could see what I could break.
