Hehe, thanks. I can't take credit for the quote though, as I saw it somewhere else (could have even been on this board since I spend way too much time here:rolleyes: .)

I love that saying, I have an old super beetle and Love it because i can floor it, accelerate hard, and yet i have never bet anyone in acceleration, and that fast the car has ever gone for me is 61, so to get a speeding ticket it is impossible. I think the one bumper stick that sums up a bug is the following: 0 - 55 in 11 minutes :drunk:

My 81 Subaru gives me the illusion of speed when I accelerate.

I can actually get the front wheels to peel out and I'm still on the original engine. And the car can allegedly do more than 60, but how would I know that? :burnout:

I like it when you take an RX and feel the pull as the turbo kicks on. That car is not a street racer, but it puts you back in the seat.

Ny '81 sounds like a beast, so w/ enough revving to skip a gear and when you push the clutch it kind of barks. I've gotten it to 75 down hill at 4000, and not doing it again.

I had my '78 Brat doin 90 and with no suspension, I didn't feel any bumps:D But yeah, it was a little scary but I'll be able to do 130+ when I'm done with it!
