Top speed for an 84 z28 with the Automatic is 145 , who knows , one day I might give it a shot

oh yeah I almost forgot hehe , 1 week after I got my liscense I was driving my moms 1991 or so Ford Taurus (my mom had one , my dad had 2 , needless to say I hate them!!!) well It was late at night and I was curious what moms POS taurus could go..... Got to 88 least thats what the Highway Patrolman told me :zx11pisse .....
fortunately he gave me a warning . Never been caught speeding again

Montana is almost in Canada, it's at the northern edge of the U.S.
very cute .. has bettle body style .. .. how about the fuel consumption?

Is Montana near Portland?

and Stephanel- Nice choice Hopingthat you will have a trouble free motoring experience
hemm .. nice engine .. what did u do with that to increase the HP? .. were u going with chip tuning and mufler or header? ..

Jakarta has 4 lanes and 3 lanes highway but so crowded and many times jam ... and when u back to the normal road u have to always deal with crazy buses, trucks, and cars that like to cut your lane anytime ... hahahahahah ... and in jakarta u can grow old on the road becoz of traffic jam almost most of times ... hehehhehehe .. ... classic problem for the big city I think ... ... jimster .. last christmas and last new year u should go to Bali .. the Hotels give about 50% to 80% Discount even the 5 stars ... A very good deal .. becoz nobody wants to go there ... hehehehhe ... only local come at last new year .. .. Did u go to Bedugul (the Lake at the mountain side)?

Intake, Air filter, Muffler, Exhaust, Header, camfshafts, cam gears and chippping have all been done- and I've voided my warranty- but when you are the GM of a dealership- you don't have to worry about any of that stuff I never got to visit Bedugul- but from what I hear it is an awesome sight.


Stefanel;- the 1.6 is VERY unlikely to give any problems

Subaru claimed 66mpg, but in real life 50-55mpg is what you'll get with it.

Thanks Hamann , I know I love the color , I think it one of the best looking blues I ever have seen , when I repaint the car I think Im going to use the same color , I think its a mixture of chrysler royal blue and a little metal flake , that what I think the original owner told me , he painted the car him self , i need a repaint though , its going on 6 or 7 years old and is starting to flake in places it got chipped (under the bra is bad , why it was on there , the bra didnt do it but when it got bad I had to cover it). As for the car , I love it I cant think of anything in the price range I'd ever trade it for

hehe no dirt roads , a girl I knew wanted me to take her back into Nags Head Woods here in NC , its not really a good road for any sports car but my car cleared the little hills fine , at low speed. Didn't know the dirt was so loose every time I'd slow down it would start to get stuck so I kept going about 30 through the woods , was a fun rough drive if anything,but when I got out the car and saw what happened to the nose I almost had a heart attack.
I thought about maybe adding some pearl to it so it would be glossier I keep it waxed pretty good but I'd like it wetter. All depends on how much money I have when I paint her. I havent finished with the motor yet , when I have it at a horsepower level I feel I'm happy with I'll go ahead and have the car painted and I'll start to seriously show it. I show it now but its nowhere near mint enough to win a serious car show

The fastest I have driven is about 235 KMH going flat-out on the Autobahn in Germany, using the BMW 323 Ci, It felt as going 5000 KMH with my Renault 25 !, but what an experience !
