If I remember right one of the Catalina Bonneville GTO 2+2s (but I couldn't say which year, maybe 66 or 67) was running 0-100 in about 10 seconds. Another, which I think Pop Mechs dubbed "the boss wagon" so it must have been an estate, and I think it had the heavy duty towing suspension not the "sports suspension" went round the test track they used (could it have been Palm Beach) 2 seconds faster than an Aston Martin. The earlier ones, before they made the lines so fussy, were very good looking.
