16.8 actually. My 60' was a 2.275 (don't have my time slip right here to verify, but I know I've have that on one of my slips). I never did get a 1/4 with a WOT run all the way. In fact after the 60' I never got more than 1/2 throttle so it was shifting well before red-line. I had to let up just after the 60' and kept letting out until about 300' feet from the traps, and when I hit the traps I had been on my brakes for probably 1/2 second or so.
My best 1/8 time was a 10.1 @ 74.xx mph.
I hope to take Ol Blue to the track this summer with her good fuel pump if I don't sell Ol Blue here soon (still need $$$ to do the front brakes and figure out what is EXACTLY causing the SES light -scanned codes awhile back, but need to do so again as I didn't write them down).
My friend just bought a 1995 Regal GS. Sadly I didn't get to go for a ride in it (was up in Grand Forks, ND where he'* attending UND). :(
Those cars are pretty quick as they are about 250 lbs lighter than a Bonne, especially in a Custom or Limited.
But I did get to do some pimpin on the way back as I was driving his 1989 Ford Tempo. Geez I got more girls looking, smiling and waving in 5 blocks than I ever have in my 1999 SSEi -guess I'll be getting myself a Tempo now.
