    SCOTT!

    I cannot find your post on the BMW model you had? I was talking with a friend tonight who showed me his favourite model. This 92 BMW 850 Csi. 12 cylinder! Crazy! Sounds like a Ferrari !

    I had alpine b7.

    Last weekend a raced my buick and and ran some slow low 11 second runs.

    Low boost and just playing. Also took out a 1988 mustang with a supercharger.

    Love cars!

    What will the Buick run as a 1/4 time properly tuned?

    It is properly tuned for sure!

    It should run easy mid 10s, but I would bring it on a trailer to the drag strip.

    Last weekend we just drove there for first time out test and tune with another car of mine.

    Did some data logging to verify the tune, and sent it back to the tuner for review today.

    He lives in Florida. Cal Hartline.

    He has been on TV many times and kinda a World Famous tuner.

    All fast Buicks are (should be) tuned by him, at a small cost.

    His shop is www.Hartlineperformance.com

    Hmmmm....?

    about a 14sec flat quarter mile car. I guess OK for the 90s?

    Any minivan or Honda 4 cylinder can do that now in 2017.

    Most 6 cylinder sport-sedan cars are now faster than that.

    Any V8 powered anything would be much faster, even my large Yukon Denali XL would smoke it.

    Not my cup of tea. Not enough excitement, but I can appreciate that technology I guess?

    Hey Scott, This is greg from California we spoke on the telephone end of last week.

    Love those T type/GNX's! Always wanted one, never took the plunge because I don't believe they ever made one with a manual transmission!

    My business partner and I searched around a while for a nice GMC Cyclone, which turned out harder to be...

    My buddy ended up on deciding on a 2005 dodge ram SRT-10. Screenshot_2017-08-21-17-52-59-1.png
    Single cab, 505ci 8.3 liter viper V10 engine with a Tremec T-56 six speed manual.
    pretty fun truck

    I believe its a 13.5 1/4 mile, internet says it still holds the title for fastest production truck with something like a 147 mph top speed.

    those BMW 850's are sweet, in my opinion one of the most sleek models they every made, especially in the M1 power model!
