    People that buy OEM systems think Linux was a Charlie Brown character, a registry is something you see at target to buy shower gifts, RAM is a Dodge truck and a hard drive is DC at rush hour.

    Lambo driver needs to learn how to kick the rear out during tight maneuvers.

    That said, I liked the ford fiesta vs corvette better.

    I could safely say no cause the lambo won the drag race. With May driving it, the lambo would take 5 minutes to cross the finish line at a whopping 8mph.

    I'm not sure if you missed the part where May drove that silly VW or not.

    Well yeah, it's kind of hard to go slow in a 1000hp car, even for Captain Slow.

    Types of women each car will get you

    Fiesta > Annoying organic food eating PETA feminists...and their grandmothers.

    Lambo> NFL cheerleaders, Hugh Hepher's Playmates and Charlie Sheen's groupies.

    James has shown a few times that he can do quite well when going in a straight line, so its not out of the norm at all for him to have won a drag race, considering the vehicles in use.

    Exocit sports car + Milk + Icecream = milkshake.

    I have driven two seaters before and they suck as far as a good ride and they don't fit either. I have heard the Miata is much better but is that comparing to a Vette or a Chevelle?

    SO: Any womah who wants a ride in a lambo only wants the money not the ride.
