Subject: RE: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Yeah, I never got to drive Honkin' Henry because Ford had a "paid" driver for it... But whereever it went I went with the Cobra... Wish I had that car today... They were less money than Vettes in their day but look at what a stock 289 Cobra brings today at auction... Like close to a quarter million bucks!!!

gnu, there's gotta bea wrecked Pontiac van out there with a couple of turn-able rotors... Gotta be... I'm suprised there aren't any after market rotors like from Auto Zone...

Zephyrs??? I remember them... Kinda like litle Mustangs, as I recall... Prolly not 2000 pounds (900 kilos)... Man, a 289 in one of them would have been somethin'...

Okay, Kendall, GTO's did rat Falcons... Just not my next door neighbors and not my Falcon... I'll show ya' pics of mine during yer visit with a younger me standing next to it holding a trophy... Might of fact, I don't recall what the "Goats" were running back then but they were alot heavier than the Falcon so even with the 389 tri-power I'd dare say that most were low 14s machines...

Unlike yer Chevy which I'm sure runs in the 13s.... Minutes that is... Awww' jus' funnin' wid ya...

Anyone remember the Grand-deville??? What a boat... Prolly top out at 150 mph but might take awhile to get there... Nice ride...
