I've never understood the motivation for someone lying like that...
I mean, just pretend for a moment that of all the members on this board, that none of us know stock HP numbers for our car and that none of us know anything about modifications and realistic HP gains of those mods...As a result, pretend we all actually believed him. And if you want to take it another (completely unbelievable) step further, pretend we all actually believed that his ugly horses ass of a car was cool looking.
So great, he's got a bunch of people that he doesn't even know respecting him for something that he doesn't have (a 289 HP car that can beat a Mustang GT), and that actually makes him feel good, it makes him feel better about himself? He really feels "cool" then? I just don't understand it...It's like those people on those Hot or Not sites that post a picture of a hot chick instead of their own...What's the point? Why would you care what other people think of you when your pretending to have something you don't have or pretending to be someone that you're not, especially when everyone is just a bunch of faceless strangers on the internet.
If it weren't for the fact the he so blatantly lied about his numbers (assuming he didn't forget to mention his turbo and that he won't present any proof to us anytime soon), I would actually kind of feel bad for the guy. He obviously likes his car and thought the rest of us would like it too...I'm sure it was a crushing blow to hear what we truly felt. But, then again, it is all a matter of personal opinion...I am sure there are quite a few people out there that think his car is good looking...But they all have horrible, horrible tastes.
