well its definitely not a ford, i guess i got the wrong name, i will try to find out what it is, and ill try and sort some pics of the local cars around my area... which include: old blue mustang, the red thing my neighbour has, one of the original 11 ecto1's fromt he ghostbusters movie, and a few custom minis...

Yes i know of santa pod, but its not really the right weather to take the bike out, its running about 180 bhp, and has been dynojetted to stage 2...

What do you think a Civic EX with intake, exhaust and headers would run?

i cant wait till the 1/8 mile track opens near me, i used to go with my dad alot but it got shut down, didnt make enough money, lol. but ya, if i run 8 to 9 1/8 mile, what could i expect in a quarter? i think my dad gets 12's with his cars and he runs low 8's with his camaro and high to mid 7's with his viper (those are 1/8 time obviously)
