It has to do with control arm type as well. Sport versus normal.

whhhaaattt the fuk! Some weird shyt just went down on y street.

I w=just randomly took a peep out of our frotn window, and at first didnt notice anything, but then after I turn away, I realised something strange was in the lawn of my neighbors across the street. So I looked again, I didnt have my glasses on but I could make out a car driver side door was opened in the driveway of the house. I could see the sillouhette over the whtie garage, and then I could make out what looked like a person laying in the small grass area between homes. So I got my glasses and sure enough, the old guy who lives at that house with his kids was fukin laying in the grass, his car door opened. So I instantly thought he had a heart attack. Called 911, told them what I saw. There is a brand new firehouse 30 sec from our street (Litteraly) but before they even got here, the guy started moving, so I was out front now and said "You ok" DO you need any help? and he was like "No im good" im ok" "thanks" while COMPLETELY stumbling around. He started to close his car door but couldnt, and did something with the trunk area of the car. I walked back inside creeped out and then a cop car came barreling down the street, with a fire truck, 2 more cop cars and a paramedic. LMAO they brought the entire fuking staff at that fire house

I think the guy was either heavily drunk, on drugs, (Or was drugged) or had a heart attack that didnt kill him.

lol, same here. People usually think I'm about 5 yrs older than my real age because of the beard. When I rarely trim it a lot they usually estimate about 5 years younger

I just bought some. It's nice to be drinking sugar again.
That's why I like it when Costco has Mexican coke. Real sugar tastes so much better. I stopped drinking soda altogether because HFCS makes it so nasty.

Is that for the earlier models? I thought after a certain cutoff date they were all 66mm.

He was face down, I could tell it was not natural. This is an old guy 65+ and his car door was wide open with him just 5 feet away from it like he fell out of it. He made a weird movement with his arm too, it was a big movement, but kinda twitch like, before I called the cops. I knew something was wrong.

Hahah yeah I don't drink soda that much either maybe like 5-6 times a year. But using real sugar made me want to buy some.
