Fun car for eating all kids of stuff on the road today, hondas, mustangs, ext, you have know idea how many times I get flipped off in one day, amazing how many pissed off people just go out and my a 30/40 or even 50 k on there car and get beat by a VW bug, I love it,
Hahahahaha sore losers. I just smile and drive away
Very nice! That's a LOT of snort from only 2.3L! How many pounds of boost?

Regarding driver reactions - I often get a similar reaction whenever I smoke an exotic or top-tier performance car with my '87 Buick GN. Even when it's THEIR idea to race - I often get flipped-off when I easily win. (Of course - backing-off enough so they can catch up, then nailing it & blowing past 'em again might have something to do with that! )

The best part only 8 lbs could go as high as 13/15 but no need. Not with a stock freeway flyer tranny.

Sweet! And it can haul RC planes, too!

Clip of my GN, cruising in "formation" with our local club. You can hear the tires bark on the up-shifts, even though I'm only hitting maybe 1/3rd throttle, max. She has ~560 pounds of torque @ the rear wheels @ 1700 RPM with war-emergency power (WEP) engaged.
