Meh... just remember... Speed Costs. How fast do you want to go?
but the costs of speed are much more worth it in a 5.0(just an example) for instance... $5,000 into a 5.0 = low 12'* (at least), or $5,000 + 98 bonneville ssei = 14'*

looks like i bought the wrong car!!!
there'* no substitute for displacement.. a 5.0 vs 3.8.. bet you if I put $5000 into a 440 big block I would woop your 5.0 a$$ Thats apple and oranges.

But you can do lots if you had $5000 to spend.

I'm sure 5 grand could get a Bonny into the 13'* easy enough, maybe 12'*.

You'll know if he is He reads here quite regularly. I doubt he'd be pissed, considering his car is linked at the PA club site. It'* available for the whole world to see.
