Bonneville Blue tried to race one a year ago and lost. He has a 92 or 93 SSEi. I feel that in order to beat that SHO is to have a heavily moded Series I or a factory Series II just to be side by side then for the lkill.

Stock, not very well, but if it was as modded as your dad'* is, the Bonnie just might take it.

Gotta give Ford some credit, they know how to put together a nice high performance sedan.

SVT, SHO...they did something right with those

True..but stock for stock, Pontiac needs to find a way to be faster then SHO.

Is GXP the answer?

There is a kid here in Sauk Centre that has a 1993 SHO with an automatic.
I raced him back in like May and I totally wasted him. Now if he had had a stick shift it would probably have been a different ending.
Personally I would never own a SHO (too many problems, especially with the automatics -I saw so many with problems when I worked at a Ford dealer in 99/00 that they won't even take them back in on trades unless they are absolutelly perfect).
