I'll bet mine could do the quarter in less than 25 seconds

With 2.73 gears (or waht ever they are) and a 3-speed auto with over drive I can squeeze a little over 90 in sconde gear.

80 mph down the freeway is just barely over 1800 rpm.

HAHA, I wish mine was an auto! My buddy just converted his over to auto, its build like a tank. 5 speeds are fun I guess but for the track you almost need an auto tranny. Besides.... I dont feel like shifting anymore haha.

The auto was very appealing to me because I knew I would beat the he!! out of it if it had a 5-speed.

In the old days you had to have a 4-speed if you wanted your car to be fast. These days consistancy is what wins.
