Had an F150 crewcab as a rental. It had a naturally-aspirated 3.3 V6 that was surprisingly peppy. After turning off all the nannies, I was able to powerbrake with ease. Yes- both wheels :thumbsup: I only burned them for about 5-7 seconds. Them tires were about as flammable as dead, dry oak leaves!

Seconds later, I couldn't see in front of me:

Did that with a loaner Grand Marquis--early 2000's. I had smoke coming out of the dash speaker grills.
Rentals are the best. You don't have to pay for the tires :rolleyes:

Tried to get a 2010 Camaro to drive to New Orleans to catch a cruise ship after my wedding in 2009. They wouldn't let me get the new Camaro cuz I couldn't return it to the same branch in Baton Rouge, so I got a 2010 Mustang. Might have to click on the link above the thumbnail.

Can't watch video. Was it a V8?

Dammit. Can anyone else see it? Probably some BS with Photobucket. Or maybe you need a certain Adobe Flash player.

It was a V6. I don't think they rent GTs. At least not Avis or Enterprise (I forget which I rented from back then),
