i say thunder bird any day, unless the grand prix was forced induced. then it might stand a chance. i dont think the regal has much to offer from that era <but leave it to someone to prove me wrong>.

Regals and GP'* weren't supercharged until 1997, so I assume we're not comparing them?

those 4 banger turbo t-birds went that slow with a few turbos mods they could be made decently quick and a 302 almost drops right in. i know cuz my friend did the same thing and he is currently selling due to his brother smashing it.

So this includes Grand Nationals right?

If not the thunderbird would be my guess.
