Iceheart you're not the only one anymore :p

So here are the 2 videos my friend recorded from the passenger seat in my 95 ETC and my friend's 91 Park Avenue at a local autocross event put on by some church. The ETC ran a 37.2 with the 200lb passenger, a full tank, and me not pushing it to the limit. I'd fully expect a high 35 in ideal conditions.

The Park Ave was almost empty, and gas sloshed away from the sump a couple times so it would've lost maybe a second if it had more gas in it. It ran a 42.6 IIRC.

Add another Caddy to the list. I have taken the Allante to three AutoX events this summer. Didn't come in last, but a fra cry from first also. Most fun I ever had with my clothes on. Two of them were a a banked asphalt oval, and the other was a parking lot.

Nooooo.... Someone took my honors away. :) Hehehe good stuff man. I must say though, you were pretty gentle on that. I need to hunt down my tape and get it onto the computer. I worked my Eldo HARD for her runs.
I wasn't pushing it too hard through the turns, and for whatever reason my car wasn't performing well on the straightaways. Might've had some bad gas since it idled like crap until I got gas a couple days ago. That's the first autox I've done on that figure 8 course and there are curbs right outside the cones just waiting to jump out and bite your tires, so I took my sweet time. Plus my passenger ran into me right before the second turn and that kinda distracted me. :annoyed:

I'd have gotten a few more runs in, it was cold so few people were there, one guy I talked to later said he got 9 runs in. I only got 1 because I had prior engagements. Sorry I don't have many other cars times to compare this to. I know a WRX ran a 35 something and Miatas are said to be the fastest out there with 31-32s with a great driver.
Thanks I~LUV~Caddys. Just Magnaflow mufflers on the stock catback (for now.) Dunno if the rest of you could tell but I can hear my belt tensioner squealing a bit :annoyed:

Anyway yeah Shadowlvr you should totally post that if you have any of your old runs on video. Hell, take your Fleetwood to one, it couldn't do much worse than the Park Ave did. Seeing an Allante autox would be cool too. I saw my first Allante, was a 93, in a parking lot awhile ago. Really nice example of a cool car.
