    Car and Driver got a 5.8 0-60 stock. And that was 1991.

    I think that was the mechanical twin of the Duster.

    I think that was right before it blew a head gasket.

    I remember when that mag came out. But the SHO blew the other 2 away for refinement. And the Spirit couldn't turn.

    I remember the Dodge Colt (of the 80's that used to beat Vettes) but I can't believe the Dodge Spirit was ever considered fast.

    You guys made me go look it up as I never knew about it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Spirit#R.2FT



    What a piece, but I have to give Dodge points for trying, just like they still are with Chargers, Neons & Jeeps.
    I do like that it beat the SHO.

    I still think the ultimate sleepers of the late 80's and early 90's were the 89 turbo TA with the GN 3.8 in it, and the 91 Syclone then Typhoons.

    Yeah i remember it too. I was 4 years old then, but i read it years later. My dad has almost every Car and Driver since they were Sports Car Illustrated, which was the mid-late 60's. I know just about every 0-60 and and top speed of any car from the 80's and 90's off the top of my head. All i did when i was little was read car magazines.

    I can relate. I've tailored my long pooping cycles based on reading Car&Driver. I've been reading for as long as I can remember. 1980 or so...

    I have probably 12-18 months still in my bathroom. And I still have the 2003 mag with the preview of the CTS-V being tested in Germany. When they said projected price of about $50G, I started making plans and saving my $$$. C&D was a BIG reason I bought my V.

    I definetly respect that guys SHO as I am a fan of anything with a turbo (especially a one-off aftermarket conversion).

    But please can someones V take him down?
    An all-motor win would restore order to the universe.
    I would love to se a new vid with a H/C LS6/2 taking out that turbo.
    I would so love to race another V. Jim was at the SHO Convention last year, and we were both at the drags, but we were not able to line up. But my car has seen some significant upgrades since then, so it would not be a fair match. Although, I think Jim was within a few tenths on the E.T., just a big difference in trap speeds. But yeah, find a local (tulsa, OK) H/C V for me to race, I can make another video, win or lose.

    Who volunteers their V to take down the SHO?
    okay, okay, here are updated pics for ya:

    Very Cool SHO
    I bet it would be faster if it were Black.

    Since it's not, there has to be a H/C V out that way that can challenge it.

    Yeah, we were both around a 13.7 but I had a trap of 103 and Tim was around 114 or so. However, I got the urge to go as I watched others race. I went out there and made it a point NOT to induce wheelspin. I was 800 miles from home...
