with the 413 ci big block it could boogie once it took a very deep breath. and it better be aimed in the right direction since it did not like turning all that much. no replacement for displacement. love that 34 cents a gallon gasoline.
great hiway car.
It puts me in mind of Herman Munster's dragster.
Would be awesome to take to raves, you'd probably get half a dozen wingmen packed in the ranks?
I've never actually fitted a proper stereo to one of my cars, the added weight rules it out.
But in something that big, you could really go to town
Things are a bit more 'point to point' these sides; one thing we don't have here are straight roads. Or dry ones☺
They generally follow rivers and valleys, so think 'hill climb' or 'tarmac rally' and you'll be on the right track.
What you need here is lightness, agility, supple suspension, lots of grip and traction, strong brakes as well as good punch out of the corners. Much like your 911 in fact. And then it turns out you're in heaven, the roads are incredible, well sighted and lightly trafficked.
Theres something very satisfying about following the natural contours of the land. Ancient ways that were once tracks used by animals
I've currently got a v8 barge for dog carrying, merc cl55 amg. And my toyota mr.2 would leave it for dead on the lanes, just way too much mass over the crests and even more in the dips. That much weight plummenting down and the road rising to meet you, the forces are massive. So you have to take it easy, and then at 6 tenths the suspension stops tying itself in knots and it's all very pleasant
(Obviously A roads and motorways are a different matter.
Though i still feel like Mr Toad hustling something that big).
But the dogs seem to like it.
