We've actually test drove a Z34 before we bought our '90 SHO a few years back, (the bitch took it form my dad in the divorce), and the Z34 is a very quick car for bone stock. On a side note, (i'm not a traitor) I find the SHO has more "glue you to your seat" then a bonneville does, especially the 5-speed SHO, although good old FORD didn't even design the engine. Those centrifugal superchargers make some nice boost.

Everyone that rides with me says they can't even tell that I'm moving that fast when I punch it. You don't feel the inertia that much in Bonnevilles...family car thing I suppose eh?

I know somebody with a 91 3.1 Lumina.. and they are definately not that quick. I think he tested his 0-60 at 10.5 seconds. Still not as bad as the 3.0 Taurus.. those are closer to 12.

yep. I was referring back to the day when they had 140 horsepower/ 160 torque. (from 86 up until like 95. ) Doesn't the new ford 3.0 STILL use a distributor?!!

I get the same responce from people who ride in my car. Usually they drive cars with much smaller engines, so the acceleration is not nearly as smooth as the 3800. (the 3800 is one silky smooth operator)

However, what counts is the needle above your seed-o-meter. Thats the thing that really feels the acceleration.
