Don't feel bad. Years ago I owned an 1987 Plymouth Reliant K car. I was having acceleration problems and it took me, what seemed like forever, to reach 40 mph. That was the fastest it would go and I was on a highway with the speedlimit of 65mph. It was so embarrasing and I got it fixed shortly thereafter. That car was Jeff'* first car (cuz I felt he might be prone to hit stuff) until his grandmother gave him his 1st bonneville.

My 86 Celebrity was pretty slow too...2.8 V6, should have been quicker, but it had a weird acceleration/gas issue.
