Nice! I say save your money and buy an used hot tub instead. Even if one is married, a hot tub"experimental" opportunities...If your sts or sls isnt turning the women on, you better throw some vogue rims and tires on that car. I did and boy does it make a HUGE difference ladies from 17 to 60 cant seem to stop staring. Maybe its because Im only 20 and have one of the nicest cars in town
I thought the 300HP N* was the most powerful FWD car. The 500ci in the 1970 Eldo fell back some due to the way they calculated horsepower back then, or so I understood. If not for that, what else would it be?Back few years ago in University, I was walking with a friend of mine and at some point passed by us some freshly painted bright red pathetic little car (don’t even remember what it was) with a really bad paint job (I mean the guy only masked the headlights and windows and he sprayed all over). Every rubber trim and such was painted. He had dark tinted windows, and some loud (distorting) stereo and cheesy music, windows down, loud muffler, some huge book shelf on the back and bad taste body kit, you got the idea… Any way in the very same moment I was thinking “man what a stupid idiot” she said to me “look what a nice car!”. I did not replay in any way, but is something that tells a lot.
Years later when she saw my car her words exactly “why is the hood on this car so long!”. Well I tried to explain, second most powerful FWD car ever made, V8, 4.6 liters and such, but she only add “is not cute”.
Is yet to find a female remotely interested in cars, or at least to know the difference between a bright red Altima and a V8 ’66 Mustang.
Ah… the wife of a friend of mine, we were walking to the parking lot of a big store in a Sunday afternoon (my friend, his wife and me). Usually twice a month there is a classic car display over there during summer. Her reply exactly “why are these old car so clean!” (as in, there are just old cars why bother).
Good info. I strongly dislike FWD...Why did I buy a STS? Because there are more thing that I did like about to justify my anti FWD-ism...In 2004, I bought a 2004 Neon SRT-4. Yes it was a Neon, but stock 1/4 mile time in 13.9 all while getting 30mph on the highway! I dumped a ton of money into it and got it into the mid 12s. I vowed I would never buy a hi performance FWD again. I broke that vow with buying the STS but I have zero intentions to race it.Most likely to save money. GM already had the Aurora's G-Body structure in place since '95, so they didn't have to do much to it when putting it on the 5th Gen Seville for '98. It was already much stiffer than the old K-Body the '92-'97 Seville's ever were. At the time I don't think GM was serious about having a true BMW competitor, and most of the older generation preferred the FWD layout that Seville offered vs the 5-Series, E-Class, GS400, etc. Once the CTS came out in early '02, they figured they needed a real midsize competitor (aka the new STS) with RWD and more power. Too bad the new STS isn't nearly as good looking at the Seville.
