    9 were built in '97 and 9 or 10 (depending on who you believe) were built in '98. Not sure if the 9 in '97 includes the 1 'vert show car that was featured in a Pontiac Enthusiast article years ago.

    I love the 98 version. It is wild as hell looking!

    Also, I have a magazine somewhere that has a short blurb about the 98 car.

    The 97 automatic runs 12.9 @ 103 mph? lol WTF is up with that?

    Lots of low end torque. I had a 383 stroker SBC that ran almost the exact same numbers.

    So, if that is the case why doenst it run faster 0-60 times (not 60')? Just because it seems that it would JUMP out fast and then taper off really quick but its lighter and less powerful than say an 06 GTO M6 that is heavier, makes more power, runs almost the EXACT same 0-60mph but the GTO will trap 108. Just saying it should have a much faster 0-60 mph time than it states. Hell it probably does! lol

    Prolly depends on traction.. If traction is crap so will be the 0-60 and 60' times.. Did they have ASR ?
