Default DID I see another toro owner on here? you at 115 top end?

well I drive like a speed demon and well i have to say that my 1990 toronado is only good fer takin out things like "some " minivans,civics stock, escorts , explorers rangers..um.. maybe a few others but I have found that it just doesnt have the ummpfh that sseis or gtps have or and aurora or caddy..but hey when these where made speed wasnt an issue just yet ill say. I mean gosh an LS lincoln totaly put me in my place the other day. zzzzzzzzzooom. and that new caddy suv. wow..107 and hes still pullin away. I mean im all stock on crappy tires.. gosh what a no no but is it just me or does this line up hae no hope if I picked up another toro to mod.

lol, 1968 was a better year for the toronado, more Power (400hp/500ft lbs)

-learn more about FWD http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...pic.php?t=7224

- to learn more about toronado= http://encyclopedia.classicoldsmobile.com/toronado/

the thing about the bonneville is, it didnt go to the ''new'' till 92, toro went in 90.

Do you have VIC?
