Got killed by a 7.3

Didn't think I would ever see it but here ya go.....

So I pass a obs today with stacks other then that it looked stock. I see him blowing a little smoke so. I blow some when I pass him. he's probably 200 -300 feet behind me. All I see is a cloud of smoke and he comes flying past me. I put it through the floor and barely bought him by the time I was goin 100+ he was still pulling away!!!! Does anyone know of a High nodded obs i'n Iowa? I've never seen it before. All I know is it hauls a$$. And I know it was a 7.3 by the sound of it. I think it's time for some sticks haha

Sweet but honestly for the price you can pick up an OBS now you should be able to build the hell out of it just based on the money you save getting a new truck.
