couldnt tell ya the brand...but i remember it being extremely deep and throaty....seemed almost out of place for the "size" of the engine

  J Edgar; Fantastic shots  I liked 1225pushin' easy on rt. 8 . The hogger has a good grip on that arm rest, ( hope he didn't pull it off. ) Very good resolution on the puter .
