There was this older CRX there that ran a 13.9 I think.

Also a old Turbo Supra that ran a 12.7.

There was also 2 Buick Grand Nationals that I drooled over too.

A 4 door Dodge Neon. Automatic. Older style.
I think all he had was an intake.

Euro, it's 2.52. The next time I go out, the only thing I am going to work on is my 60 foot times.

It wasn't a CRX, it was just a Civic that ran 13.9 ALL MOTOR!

A good set of tires, even something better than stock will put you in the 15's, I know I am changing mine out soon, good tires can be a couple tenths, even on slower cars like foci, on something like a mustang it can be as much as a full second, but usually at least 5 tenths...Glad to see you are improving!
