Totally hilarious though, would of been even funnier if the girl got out of the car and wanted to ride home with you.
She was kinda eyeing me throughout the night as he just continued to ramble about how great his car was... Almost as if she was like "hey lets just sneak away while he's still rambling".... LOL

I doubt the 1/4 would have made much of a difference in the end result...

The guy recording the video kinda knows him so I'll try to find out which motor he had because I know there were a handful of differen't v8's available for that generation of Firebird.
