    Bess, since you obviously don't read Shazar's comment section, I'll use this as my soapbox: in a world where unemployment is so high as to be tied to the cost of money, why does Shazar have a job?

    He is no bear. He is a mouse, hiding from the hawk, in the house of the raven.

    I've worked with him. His sense of humor blows, unless he is the one telling the jokes.

    There is no substitution for cubic inches. Try your luck with a 73 goat sometime. Mommy's grocery getter, souped up or not is not fast. you want to see a getter for a sedan try a ford taurus SHO. This is all about horsepower to weight ratio, and your car is heavy no matter what. You will never be able to put a large enough engine it it to be competitive. Look at the weights of various cars on the market and see what their horsepower and torque is. I think that you will see what every one is telling you.
