Haha, so last week, it was really snowy here in New York, and I managed to get my 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T AWD (5.7L V8 Hemi) stuck on the side of my driveway.
I know, I know, AWD and I got it stuck. Suffice to say the side of my driveway slopes down towards a small copse of trees and I managed to get the car sideways on the hill.
So I eventually called AAA to get my car winched out. The tow truck driver had to be very careful because he didn't want to winch my car into a tree at the bottom of the hill, so he had to hop in my drivers seat and try to align the car in such a way so that he could tow it out safely.
He immediately noticed the SuperChips tuner sitting in my passenger seat and the first words out of his mouth were "Ooo you got a SuperChips tuner for this beast... niiiiiice!" Then he started going off about how much he loved messing around with Hemi and diesel engines and how he's actually on his 2 weeks notice as a tow truck driver and is going to go back to working as a diesel engine mechanic. He said the first mod he's done on his trucks was a SuperChips to unlock the extra power.
After we got the car winched most of the way up the hill, and then powered it out the rest of the way with the AWD and some good 'ol American hosspowa, the tow truck driver couldn't stop spouting about how much he wanted my car and can't wait to get back working on engines and racing cars at the track.
"If they ever release one of these in the US with a Diesel, I know what I'm buyin'!"
I agree... a diesel would rock. But in the end, I could tell that the guy was reluctant to get out of the car. It was obvious that he was once again yearning for something with a bit more speed than his tow truck could manage.
I know, I know... this is more of a "my car rocks" than a "SuperChips rocks" thread, but it was good to hear the testimonial from the torque-happy tow truck driver.
