Is this thread for real?

It reminds me of something I read in one of my Dad's trade journals when I was about nine years old in the late fifties. A guy goes into the auto supply and asks for muffler, exhaust and tailpipes for a '53 Mercury. A few days later he comes back and starts explaining to the parts man that the tailpipe is too long, the exhaust pipe is too big, the muffler won't fit, etc. After the parts man asks many questions he finally asks the fellow, "do you have a '53 Mercury?" The guy says, "no, I have a '54 Buick." The parts man asks "why did you order parts for a '53 Mercury?" The customers response was "Because I like the sound of the '53 Mercury when my neighbor revs his engine."

Have a great day,
