Not impressed with an 8-second firehawk. Ok.

Cuz you sure see that every day, right? No props to the guy, in spite of the fact that he'* not the only one to do it, simply because some stang guys do it too.


Alrighty then.

There are a few here and there for sale:

For some reason there are a lot of 95s for sale right now. 02s are plentiful too.

If I had to do it all over again I think I'd look for a Comp TA.

Alrighty then.

I guess not impressed cause a old NA mustang can do the same thing without the aid of a turbo or supercharger I guess.
