RE: My possible first car.
Wow, all of you have issues, i love all cars, nothing is better than internet bench racing though. Anyway, i figured i would give you an unbiased opinion from a guy that happens to own most of the preceding, allthough this poor 280 that was recently dumped on me does seem to have a 6 cylinder. It is gonna be cool when i get it done, i would either like to find a 350 or a 6.3 liter one to put in it. Sorry, again, i was just perusing through the forums and saw this fussing. So let me make some observations, Mike, you seem to know your shit, but i have been wanting a gtv for a while, checking ebay now... Tikket and tory, whatever you are, your the biggest idiots and have a german superiority complex. I would honestly argue that japan makes the superior cars. Have you ever heard of the wangan? Skylines and supras and cefiros and silvias and evos and nsx's 3000gt's are some excellent cars, the got a bad rap though, need i say more? I own a 240sx with a sr20 conversion one of the aforementioned SHO's a 280 with the 2.8 and a BMW 328. The SHO is the second fastest, after that crazy drift/ autocross/ rally/ drag car that is a silfourty. Thats my race car, its beyond badass. Then there is my SHO, made in 1990, it rests on eibach lowering springs and a bigger anti roll bar for suspension and have 10 spoke icw rims. It handles a little better than my 328, in all fairness the 328 is stock. Bone stock i claimed a 15.1. V-8 ones do about 15.7. And mister first car you so nicely deducted a second but 6.1 is correct for the sprint to 60. Oh and yes 160 is possible. It would take a couple of miles in that tall geared auto. 190 is gay not happening. There is one i can think of that can do that, but its a race car. I would say that with intake maf sensor and ams and some nice full custom exhaust work that 160 would be possible. Ive had mine a good way past 140 but im making no claims. Oh yes how nice of you to test the top model german cars, honestly, my sho would severely whoop every one of those, i know about half of those from experience. Saabs? My money is on the 9k, 91 and 92 turbos. The lightest year of the 2.3 liter turbo. Those go decently. 900's have the handling department covered in saabs though. Oh tory? i have a 328, its gonna be my corner carver, but your numbers? There clearly retarded. 5.5 0-60? Gimme a break, are you saying that it accelerates as fast as the WRX? Nope, My 240 is the only one that can claim that. Morons like you make me wanna scrap my german cars, tory. Oh yes and my mercedes, im not sure what i wanna do with it yet, maybe a chick cruiser, or a blown 350 would be nice, if any of you know where i can get a 6.3 or know anything about a 350 drop in lemme know. My 280 does handle like a bloated pig though, it needs new stuff under there. Anyway, im out, im looking up that all german cars are measured at the wheels, My 280 doesnt feel like 215@ the wheels. Umm my beamer, i dont think that its power was measured at the wheels either. (119 whp) Maybe its just really ragged out. wait lemme make you a chart.
240- 327 whp
SHO- 235 whp (about 1500 under the hood)
328- 119 whp hey its stock
280- havent bothered with it

Oh yeah tory, did i mention your an idiot, you sure have proved your stupidity to everyone on this site. Incase you havent noticed i dont like you very much mwuhahaha. First impressions last a life time, i wonder how many people hate me now.
PS I respect mercedes very much, in the short time i have had that 280 it has proven to be a very well made car, and i am proud to own it along with every other car parked in my yard. Some of there performance cars i dont really wanna mess with either. There just so damn expensive...
