Car guys vs non car guys

Thought this video was pretty funny.

http://youtu.be/610rMnK9HCo

Reminded me of the other day I went for a hike with my brother who's like half a car guy. He hates my exhaust delete and intake growl in the Fusion and hated the suspension (until he realized it's still stock :shrug. We had about 1.5 hour highway drive followed by about 20min twisty skinny mountain road with tons of switchback, cliffs, steep drops, big walls of rock and nice views.

I gotta say he had a blast on the mountain road and every time I passed someone to hear the car scream. Next time I head over there I'll have to set up the gopro!

I'll be doing some suspension mods soon but I'm still very suprised how well the Sport handled for a heavier car.

Not going to lie, most of the things in the video are 100% accurate

Whenever I lock my keys inside my car an use the door code to lock/unlock the car I'm bad for that.

Even going to work today I walked back twice. Once to make sure it was locked and the second time was bc I forgot my iphone cable in the car.

I tell you what though, some SUVs and trucks feel way more sporty than you'd expect, especially the new Fords! I really like the new Edge.

Even my parent's Tahoe feels beyond more sporty than my sisters' Corolla... stupid loaf of bread...

That's true! I love the new Edge and Explorer Sport. We have an F-150 for the wife's daily and it's pretty fun, the 5L sounds awesome too.
