It was Sal who was (trying to) drive the Corvette. He was unable to launch
without killing the motor.

* - I have personally driven it 300 mph at Bonneville, handicapping 16
various VAG products a half-mile. I passed them all before the one-mile
mark, not feeling the least bit guilty about plugging their radiators with
salt-spray. Considering the iron in question, I refused the pink slips, but
did accept the next 16 wash and wax jobs from a pimple-faced twit named
Wow, you just brought back a really fond <and old> memory. Way back,
and I ain't saying how far, I had this rip snorting `72 X-Code GTO.
Beast which was retro-fitted with a highly modified `71's YA-Code 455
HO SD engine factory rated @ 360hp in stock trim, and lord knows how
much torque (didn't advertised #'s back then or way under reported
them because of insurance).
Any how this tire-eatin, Sunoco 260 guzzling beast & I were the Cock
of the walk, El Numero Uno, when a pup with a Brandie New Datsun Z
starts talkin all this crap about how fast his piece of Jap Crap is.
I keep tellin him, "Boy there's fast, and then there is 1/4 mile
fast", at the time I was running every weekend @ DelMarVa and was
pretty damn consistent.
Anyhow long story short, I finally tell him I'm not turning a Cam for
anything less then a C-note and he agrees. We head out to the local
(unofficial strip) and the dumb bastard dumps the clutch off the line
& stalls it. I comeback to the starting line and he's still talking
crap in front of a group of our friends. This time I give him two car
lengths, panties drop and slicker then cat with it's ass on fire, I'm
by him 2-seconds after launch. Bastard never did pay me my money.

Evos are much better than Corvettes and for one thing they can
actually corner unlike corvettes with stupid 2 wheel drive.
That's why cars that cost half as much as a ZO6 have a faster 0-60
time because they can actually get the power to the ground because of
