Last week we tested a new weekly feature we're now calling "Auto Forum Troll of the Week." Slaying forum trolls is a public service Jalopnik's always happy to do. First up? The NorCal-LSX Forums.
What happens when a troll purporting to be a 2003 Mustang Cobra fanboy wanders into GM forum territory and drops a bombastic tribute to his claimed chariot of choice? Trolling that reads like a Chuck Norris tribute novella. We've seen this type of character before, but never for the '03 Mustang Cobra. Obviously it must be because we didn't realize the weakest part of an '03 Cobra's drivetrain is the driver's neck. Read on:
