Not necessarily that you've had the pleasure of driving but at least having the pleasure to ride shotgun in.

Fastest car I've been in was a 400+ horsepower Corvette ZR-1. That thing pulled hard and effortlessly.

I still want to take a ride in my neighbors built up 68' Camaro with a bored over 396 and that 150 shot of NOS. He claims to run in the 10's.:)

MY friend's '86 Buick Grand National, a turbo 3.8 with (at the time) 18 pounds of boost, which equals a long rolling burnout from 50 mph

Grand dad's BGN use to run 11's on street tires, but then he sold it when the tranny blew. BGN/Turbo Regals are kings of cheap 8s 1/4 miles.

Faster car was a girlfriend's dad's '69 vette wtih a 424 dropped in it. I drove it at 165mph and thought it was too fast for the car.

Fastest truck is my best friend's new uncle built to tow his championship circle track car. The truck will run 8s in the 1/4 mile with the tires spinning the entire run. (No grip) It's got a 500ci motor he built for an SCCA race car he won with, but they kicked the car out b/c they kept saying it was too heavy for it's class...

I took a ride at 140mph along some back roads and it was scary shit.

my friend's turbo'ed RSX-S. running 9 psi, putting a weak 263 hp to the ground, something's wrong, and he doesn't have the money to get it fixed :lol:

that's why u don't go with greddy.

mrq: i only say what i see the needle went to 30 so that's what i say i have no need to bs. it's not my car and i haven't seen him in years (my sister divorced). if you don't believe me than fine cause when i finally learned what boosting does i couldn't believe it my self but that is exactly what i saw. he just started working on it and finally put the motor in no body kit no tints no radio no ac no heater no rear seats no carpet it looked like racehex's interior.

My car :whatwhat:

In terms of potentially fast cars..MrQ's Duece and Tony's turbo'd Camry. I say potentially because at the time, neither of their cars were running properly :(

nothing major compared to what everyone else said but, a 1985 Mustang GT 5-speed (not sure what he had done to it)..doing 60-70 on side streets at night is a fuckin trip.

I heard that the demise of the Grand National was totally political. They were outrunning the Vette's and GM couldn't stand for that. So instead of building the Vette's faster, they just terminated the GN's. Typical GM.:lol:
