    Nah...it's too sporty. I'll take Grandma's Fairmont.



    ^^^That thing sounds like an aircraft taking off from a carrier.

    The Fairmont guy has a video in which he gets kicked out of a drag race park for going too fast without a roll cage. The tech inspector was livid when he saw the time slip.

    It has the original bench seat.

    That's hilarious, obviously it wears it's disguise well, I get such a kick out of these kind of cars, somehow they appeal more to me than the typical track cars running the quarter. I think it is the surprise and shock they generate.

    What is in that Fairmont!? I heard a lotta air induction noise @ the burnout and @ the 1/4-m launch.

    Runs >10s consistently. Not bad for an SUV thing, eh?

    As much as drag racing doesn't interest me, 420 cubic inches to get mid 9s? Kinda sucks. This car gets low 9s with only a 4 cylinder. 9.057s at 159.69mph.
