Default Runs high 10s........oh really...

http://cleveland.craigslist.org/car/431407848.html

Says it will run high 10s in the quarter.

Looking under the hood, I can clearly see the wheezy 5.0 HO 2bbl that only made 155hp. Explain that one to me. Maybe high 10s in the 0-60 is what he meant to say?

No one would sell a 10 second car for 3 grand, even in cleveland.

What is with the standard Craigslist poster'* aversion to capital letters and punctuation?

It'* hilarious what people think their cars will do in the quarter mile. My buddy said his Sentra Spec-V ran a high 10.... If that is true I'm about to hit some 9'* this weekend.

My car can do a quarter mile in 10 seconds.

(if I'm already doing 90mph at the zero-mile mark )

I can buy a 10 second datsun with a 427/350 (I forget) for $3000 here.....however it is all dragged out and far from street legal.
