I'm not sure what their test criteria was but the conclusions were interesting, to say the least.

Somehow, I don't see canceling my TTS order and getting a Fiesta instead.



<<-- On Paradise Ace, expected/estimated (by me) in Davisville in the next day or so.

Back in the 80s those were decent performance numbers for a street car ... 6.x to 60 and 15.2 1/4 mile ... Their calculation of bang/buck must tip severely toward the buck side of the equation however ...

I certainly wouldn't be reading to much into that load of nonsense.

Reminds me of a quote I read here on RL: "Life is too short to drive a sh*tbox."

Ha.
When I went to mine, no one was standing in the parking lot to see what I was driving (which happened to be a new Corvette; I worked for GM at the time).
My advice is to drive a beater to the reunion as to protect your Turbo and buy a nice Armani suit to impress your classmates with.
