If a 1990 Crown Victoria LTD (Civilian) raced a 2001 Honda Civic Si which would win a quarter mile?
Is this a trick question? :laughing:
Nope haha, it might sound stupid to some but me and a friend really thought about all the factors like power and wiehth... etc... we came to no conclusion. (He has the cvic). Oh and its not an Si. Just a Standard Coupe.
What's wiehth? A cross between width and weight? :laughing:
I'm not familiar with the Crown Vics as I live in the UK, but obviously the Civic would have the weight advantage, but if it's not an Si It's certainly no rocket ship I guess, lol....I assume the Ford's a V8 so it has the power, but it's a lot heavier. Crown Vics are no rocket ships either, but is that like an ex-police car? (given the LTD part, and you specified it was "civilian" model)
You could just google 1/4 mile times for the cars, but I'm betting the Si would wipe the floor with a Crown Vic. The Crown Vic doesn't really have a lot of power, probably similar numbers with the Si. A non-Si Civic and A Crown Victoria would be a much closer race.
haha, sorry I should clear this up...
Where talking about racing...
A, Crown Victoria LTD 4-spd AOD, 302
2001 Honda Civic Coupe (Not Si) 5 spd standart trany.
My friend and ar going to race em... i just wanted to know the odds.
I would think the Crown Vic would win easily, wouldn't it? People give civics too much credit, especially bone stock base models ones, which have next to no power.
when I test drove a 2001? civic a few years ago when I was looking for a new car, I had it floored, and it had less oomph then my 1988 Dodge grand caravan 3.0 V6, which is one of the reasons I got a Taurus, 3.0 V6 as it had more get up and go than the civic. All that being said, if your Vic is in good shape engine and tranny wise, I think it would win. Of course you are comparing snails and Tortoises, but I think the Vic will win.
Yea haha I agree, I hate how so many kids I know, worship these kind of cars. I hate them the most of any car I can think of :S
thumbs up on the crown vic
