Unless they're semi tractors!!!
The Magnum taught me that horsepower/torque alone wouldn't make me happy...nice pull on that sucker, but not much fun to drive.
I also test drove a 300hp Volvo turbo wagon that would go like a mother after you gave it a second or two to make sure that it REALLY wanted to move, after all.
Gimme an L....gimme an A....gimme a G!!!!
75' Hurst/Olds W30 high nickle 455 block, all the goodies, dynoed at 560+ HP without the 200hp NO2 shot. TV Bullrun star!
75' Hurst/Olds W30 455 500hp, being rebuilt as 100% stock appearing.
75' Cutlass "Extreme"; protouring. Built with the best of everything (engine build was $25k+ in exchange for promo...retail $60k engine; a 200mph-all-day car. Dynoed at 630+HP, 250 shot of NO2 also going in. Blower or turbos are on the things to do list. This one is destined for the magazines and shows.
86 Jeep Cherokee 3.0 V6 Chevy 10.5:1 Compression, all the goodies, Eaton M90 blower, wet NO2 system, Weber race carb customized for blow through application. Estimated 450-500hp.
Then there are the "slower" cars.
73 Olds Cutlass Supreme 350cid, appears mostly stock, survivor car, induction, gears, exhaust, estimated 300hp.
74 Porsche 914 exhaust and suspension work done.
92 Jeep Cherokee rock crawler 220hp, as far as engine, only induction and exhaust work done.
07 Jeep SRT8 hi flow intake, custom headers on the way, 450hp
08 GMC Yukon Denali, dead stock 385hp, leased so its staying stock.
Most of the higher HP cars are in continuous states of build. Of those the first Hurst listed is the one that was on TV and is closest to being 100% complete.
Dad has a HEMI Jeep GC and a Pontiac Firehawk 20th anniversary edition with......wait for it..................
500 original miles on the odo!
