Default Somewhat Ironic...

I guess this is somehwat ironic...

i was just watching the history channel and on there...Modern Marvels: Custom Cars

ok well at the commercial break, they give some trivia...

"In 2005, a modified Honda Civic exceeded 195 miles per hour on the Bonneville Salt Flats"

Now see ricers, they named the Pontiac Bonneville after the Bonneville Salt Flats for a good reason...modded ricers have no place on Bonneville Salt Flats.

ok back to bed, good night...

Ed morads ssei is in that range.

You are probably looking at $20,000 in mods to get that, Transmission will cost you probably 1/3 of that due to the custom fabbed parts...

The civic was a modified RS. They spent alot of green and in the end gained 5hp - LMAO
They couldn't win in the normal class so they had to use quite a bit of duct tape so the could run in the 'modified' class for that size to the record.

What I was impressed with that year was this guy that had a quad turbo'd Suzuki motorcyle that made over 450hp. .
