Well, people have asked me if something was wrong with the car, it seemed slow to them.

In only owning the car for about a month and a half, I get people that ask me, "Is this the rare one with the Grand National turbo engine?" I look at them and say... No...try again.

Cant most people just tell by the sound that they are not V8s? I sure can. And with so many car have dual exhausts for low emissions reasons I wonder what people thinks those cars have under the hood.
