What cars out there do you compete with the most. I for example like to run with Taurus SHO'* and Grand Am GT'* w\ ram air. I was just curious as to what everyone else likes to compete with.

Do you guys have this problem. Everyone at work thinks I drive a grandpas car. I tell people take one ride and change your mind, or I ask to race them but nobody takes me seriously. People ask why I drive a full size car and I tell I like the room, the 3800 Series are really reliable and peppy and fuel effiecient, safey and how sporty it is. Alot of people just think my car is too big and for old people.

I'll race ANYTHING ! I don't care if I win or lose , just wanna be comfortable ! Besides , if we lose BADLY it'* probably gonna be to a small sports car ! So he can't get to happy anyway !
How would it sound " My 50,000.00 corvette beat a sedan , wait till the guys here about thi one !" !

I am 19 and drive a 92sse sc. I catch a lot of flack for saying I'm driving a Bonneville. They do shut up pretty quick when I whoop em. I like the fact that it'* a sleeper. And now that I made a custom intake, she'* whistles so they don't know what'* flying by them. I love it.
