Default Where are the Mopar/Ford Kills

Where are the “victories” over another V6, from Mopar Ford, or one of the foreign makes. Hearing about running a 4 cylinder, or another GM car, doesn’t rate high on the interest meter. Let’* hear about putting down a SHO, a 300M, Intrepid, 525, or LHS.

Who cares if you passed a 4 cylinder with a garbage can hanging off the rear, or a F-16 wing hung on the trunk.

Read back in kill stories. Lots of Chrysler kills in here.

SHO'* and SSEi'* actually match up very closely, but we have eaten 300Ms and Intrepids on many occasions. The problem is there are not many domestic full sized sedans that match up to Bonnevilles. The best stories are the Bonnes vs. GP. Thats always good fun.

Not a lot of European car kills here, maybe a few 3 series BMW'*, but Bonneville driver know their limits.

Beside, rice kills are more fun to laugh at. And yes, I do care :P

We've taken a few 6cyl Mustangs, but it hardly seems worth mentioning becasuse we used to kill them in a beat-up GP SE. I'm waiting to match up with an 8cyl to see how it goes.

don't know how i would do up against a SSEi, but i do know an old fox body 5.0 left my *** like no one'* business. oh and i also got taken out by an 98 eclipse with the factory wing. we were doing about 25 and talking, i could hear his turbo spooled, so i asked him to punch it, i did the same, he was walking away at a decent rate. he had a fart can, but as far as i'm concerned it'* fine, as long as you can beat my "grocery getter". if you can't beat be... i'll knock it like no one'* business . anyway, time for some good news... later that day, i took out a 92 camaro with a 305

305'* made about 130-140 HP in the late 80'*.. Very sad time for GM. The V6 3.1 had just as much power, and much less weight. 305s can be built up nice, and there are plenty of parts for them though, unlike some full size sedans that frequent this forum...

Some 5.0'* are very very weak as well, and many Fox bodys have a 5.0 sticker but nothign to back it up. But keep on your toes! Always fun to see how the "granny grocery getter" runs with pony cars, and sports cars though. Me and abuot an 89 vette were going on the freeway together. Definelty some respect there.
