My dream job would be some type of performance automotive reliability engineer.

I could see myself in new Shelby's, Raptors, Corvettes, Camaro's, Challenger's, Dodge TRX, etc., running them on the edge in every way! :hyper: 

We have machines that hold a engine on the rev limiter for hours on end. You've been replaced by computers.

What is a very good product to clean the dash and door panels. Vehicle is a 1999 silverado. 

Mild soapy water.  Rinse well.  

That's what my dad told me about his GTO interior.  It's a 66 and has no cracks in the dashboard, it was not parked under a cover until about 1998.  It had PLENTY of sun in those 30+ years.   Someone applying "chemicals" to my interior would give me the same reaction as someone throwing molitov   cocktails at it.

The local county election office mailed out a notice telling where to vote (since polling locations are changed)...... to my mother.  That gives me great confidence in the system. :rolleyes:

Regarding the complexity of a Ford engine (2003 5.4) vs a GM (2003 5.3), how many individual engine parts per HP??    26 valve cover bolts vs 8.   Dang a Ford.

The car doesn't even sound like it's trying very hard. :stare: 

I like going fast, but way too much can go wrong at airplane speeds. 

Remember that Lambo that was going top speed, hit a bump, and flew off the road?

Yeah, stuff like that!
