Default a Tie with a 94 Buick Lesabre!! :(

Just to let you know i was NOT NOT NOT in my L67 SSEi...haha.

The other day when i was waitin for my Tail lights to dry on my SSEi ( they were in the process of being tinted ) i had to go out and run some errands. Both of my parents were gone so the only car left was my back up...1989 LeSabre ..still runnin strong. 3800 Series 1 for anyone who cares. Anyways i was on the highway and this bastard in a 94ish Lesabre gunned past me..then slowed down..and paced me. Then he sped up and i went with him the next time.. We both were like pacing eachother as we both had the pedal to the medal..haha. No one jumped foward all the way up to 90 and i just kinda slowed down cuz it was pointless..and i was in my 2nd car. So basically i'd call it a tie. After the race i SOOOO wished i was in the SSEi..i woulda eatin him alive. I gotta admit though..that Series 1 still has some pep in it..i was impressed. Good 2nd car

Haha..i barely ever touch the car. Lately i've been driving it to baseball cuz the atmosphere at our practice field is kinda dusty due to the dirt roads . I was fed up after the first practice there.. I just got done washin my car for like an hour..and i drove it to practice and after practice there was a pile of dirt on the top of my car. So the bonn sits at home during baseball..yes! Now i don't have to worry about foul balls hitting my car either. The buick also gets alot better gas mileage. ..That supercharger eats my gas ..seriously. Sometimes i'll gun it for like 5 seconds and i'll look down and the gas meter goes down alot. Wow, i'm getting off the subject so i'll stop.

I'll second that fact. I can get to 60mph pretty quickly, faster then 9 seconds I think...never tried it, but those old boats have lots of power

I have gotten just over 40mpg on several long trips of over 300 miles.

This is crusing at around 70 or so mph with sprints up to 80.
