    Who owns this car...

    I thought someone on here owns this car. Pretty sure it could hit 60 much quicker than 10 seconds.

    Dennis Collins owns it now, I have one of the street versions and one of the race ones. Not very fast. Pre SVO.

    The Gas Monkey guy?

    Just seems like 175hp would be faster than a 10 second 0-60 time.

    There was one of those in a local car show when I first moved to my town. (1990) Didn't know what it was and have not seen it since.

    At one time, there were 5 in the Bay Area, CA. I only know one right now in the area. Pretty neat that all can be accounted for.

    Same HP rating as the 1984 and 1985 SVO power plant.

    Well, yes, that's what I meant. A stock 84 SVO did 0-60 in about 7.5 seconds, right?

    IIRD the magazines rated it in that range (7.5-7.7) but I've slept since then.
