hehe... that'* my old car all right....

Best she did was 13.8s @ 103mph.... but that was with a full tank of gas and the subs in the trunk.
With a better tune and some weight loss she could easily do 13.5s or lower..... I still have all my old 1/4 mile slips.

For those that don't know I sold both cars a while ago.

AFAIK my 91 is in Greenwood, NS and is well cared for.

I sold my 97 to a friend who was traveling from Moncton to Halifax weekly, he needed a good highway car.He'* no longer traveling the highways as much so he decided to sell the car.
Looks like Mike picked it up for a steal of a price!


For those that are interested, this is what I drive now.

Mike if you need anything let me know. You should bring her out to a few Atlantic Sport Car Club events (ASCC).

You are amazingly lucky! Welcome to the club. As soon as I read that you joined here, I ran over to see and welcome you myself. That car is so awesome, and I came very close to buying it. It is seriously too cool. What an amazing find for 2.5K! Now, more mods!

You need to get some pictures of that car posted. Would make a great car for COTM. You have any plans? More mods, etc.

X2...get more pictures up in the Your Ride section. We need to stack up more cars for the COTM nomination and vote for January 2010.
