If you love them that much why come here and tell us?? ::)Opinions that's all it comes down to...
As far as fast in straight lines, they were built that way - back when men where men they raced straight, salt flats, out side Buger King aka fonzie. The jappas should handle better there built for "road racing" with 30 plus years of tech to boot, I have one a Subaru RSK-B4 Twin-turbo bla bla bla, Way better comfort, less gas, better handling by far BUT there aint nothing like cranking over some V8 Muscle to get the blood pumping, plus the Subaru's way slower, LMAO!!
Gas means only that to the driver - we buy them knowing they are expensive to run, who cares!! If you work at Burger King or are still at school then don't buy one - once your've payed for your gas, hop in start her up that's when you know that it's all worth the gas and then some.
Most of the eights aren't street legal because there doing quick times, when your doing 7 second quarters of course it won't be street legal and don't get me started on the quickest of both worlds, no comparison!!
Eights = 4 second 1/4's, Imports = 8 - maybe the eights should remove 4 spark plugs to even things up??? LOL
I'd love to see a import fetching 100K plus in 30 plus years let-alone 100 bucks, I've heard some funny stuff said about eights here's one: "Eights a for people who need to "enhance" there man hood!!" That's some funny stuff which I wouldn't waste my time on usually but, why? why would we need to do that when they come out the factory looking and performing like Concrete eating machines - Jappas are the ones going out there and putting "50hp" mufflers, stickers, lights (neon add more hp) wings from nam, and plenty of other non-estential mods. V8's are higway beasts and there aint much more to it than that - we'll let the riceys muck around in 25mph areas..........
Horse-powers good but Torque wins racers, which in term means there aint no replacement for displacement
