lol. I don't know how you could even drive that. heh. I thought it was bad enough once driving a 26 second car. It was a 1982 Chevette. That car took 26 seconds to get to 60 and couldnt' go much faster than that. I had it floored anytime I was accelerating. It'* hard not to floor it constantly when it'* THAT slow. heh. I gave that car back to my friend and said I never wanted to drive it again. haha.

2.3 stang? Was that the Fox-body-era Mustang with the four banger in it? I had an '89 as my first car, lol :P. She ran okay (due to the fact that my stepfather had replaced nearly every single vital component in the thing during his previous ownership) but, God, the thing barely got out of it'* own way, much less anyone else'*.: At least it SOUNDED fast, hehe :P Damn thing screamed like a bitch when you tried to get her to accelerate to any tolerable degree. Ah, those were the days, lol
