"Well, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're going to see some serious shit."


The really sad thing is, she didn't clue in to the movie reference until she was getting out of my car. At that point I explained to her that the car is turbocharged and that was the sound it starts to make as the turbo spools. It was a painful, but brief conversation.
