Re: [T3] Not quite right......

I guess I should have been clearer. The *pops* were those little back-fire
pops. I didn't say back-fire because they weren't big fire cracker pops. I
was driving in town at 20 - 25 mph and was slowing down for a stop sign.

Boy I hope it's nothing like what you've described.

Thanks for the input,
