One of the perks of this job is the many wonderful, kind, articulate, educated and informed car lovers I meet. Then every rare once in a while I get a letter like this. What a relief he can't appreciate a SHO. If he liked a SHO - then I would worry.
If you enjoy prose like this feel free to drop him a note of gratitude, just click on the link to his email address any type away anything you feel appropriate.

youre a corny mother fucker, specifically on that one article you wrote
"police interceptor what ifs". that one guy who responded to the
article made you look like a fuckin moron. i test drove 2 different 97 SHO's and
found that they werent shit.
I never spoke to you in profanities, attacked you personally, questioned your integrity, intelligence or ability to spell and punctuate. I don't talk to others that way and I don't tolerate it my-self.
Anything you put out on the WWW or E mail is public. It is on your ISP server and mine. The CIA, FBI and NSA had a copy before I got the original. If you wrote from work your employer has a copy. If I read it at work my employer has a copy.
If you are not proud of relating to me in such a manner I recommend you learn to how to relate to others you meet in an adult to adult mode.
I don't need your permission to make public something sent to me. Once I receive it, legally I have possession and the right to do what ever I like. I didn't change a thing you wrote.
We take comments - both negative and positive on V8 SHO, we do not tolerate profanities, slander and illiteracy with the same poise.
If this is an apology, it is a half hearted at best. Send me a sincere public apology and I will remove the one page you don't like within one week of receipt.
One other thing, We sign our work here. We don't hide behind E mail address.

Thank you, apology accepted.
You don't have to like SHO's but I would not talk at another human the way you felt comfortable talking to me, even if they could not afford shoes - much less a car.
aka Sheriff Buford T. Justice.
