    This is right from Motor Trend

    Engine 2.0L/205-hp supercharged I-4, DOHC, 4 valves/cyl
    0-60 mph, sec 6.0
    1/4 mile, sec @ mph 14.5 @ 98.2
    Braking, 60-0 mph, ft 115
    200-ft skidpad, avg g 0.89
    600-ft slalom, mph 69.0

    Every time I see one, the guy in it acts like he is driving a ricer. He thinks it is the baddest car ever! I had one a few months ago pull up next to me at a stoplight and start revving up like he has something. I gave him a couple revs and when the light turned green he shot off like a bat out of hell. I slowly took off and made him look stupid. He was not even worth my time.

    There's a guy running one around here. He's got exhaust, and spray. It's somewhat quick.

    I think they are good looking cars. There was one in Liberty that was burnt orange. It was a freshmen in highschool that had it. He pulled up next to me at a stop light when I was in the Formula. I didnt want to race him but he asked me "is that piece of shit fast?" So I had to show him. There were 3 cars full of his friends behind us too... which made it that much better. I didnt cut him any slack and let him have it. He was an idiot.. about 3 days later he rolled it into a ditch and totalled it.

    Some of the SS Cobalts are not S/C, instead they have a 2.2ltr. Diff of 40ftlbs of torque.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    it's still a weird looking car, sits really high and has a thin tall body. not much for racing.

    There is a guy at the track here that has dogged and dogged and finally hit a 14.9. Hell it took him about a month work of track time to get it down that low.

    Uh, I kinda doubt that. Lets see, if they come stock with 205 HP, and ours came with 305 HP and we're at about 3500 lbs, the Cobalt would have to weigh less than 2352 to hav the same power to weight ratio.

    They aren't that light.

    I remember going there when they had a real liquor (lick h--?) license and they used to book porn stars to perform (I saw Lois Ayers there but remember I'm an old f*rt. She said performing in clubs like that was more profitable because it was cash and off the books rather than making porn movies. And, she didn't have to go to bed with anyone unless it was her choice or other circumstances ($$$) were right...). Ahhh, misspent youth.
    Show World, the Angel Inn, the Hole In The Woods - all just memories.
    [SLAP to face!] Sorry to get off topic, just remembering the olden daze..

    Danger, where you living these days? A couple of years back, I got into a huge arguement with some schmuck over by "Bourbon Street" in Sayerville. Guy was a regular there, and sported a yellow Lambo. I got so messed up that night, I bet him a grand that I would hand him his @ss starting from Perrine Road, up until Old Mill. Dumbass accepted.

    I'll never forget it, it happened on a Friday night. Half of the Go-Go bar followed behind, as we lined up in front of Laura's Pancake house (RIP, as now a Commerce Bank stands there). Guy didn't know what he was in for, sadly. Don't get me wrong, his Lambo was freaking fast... he just didn't know how to drive it, plus we were all pretty wasted.

    Long story short, not only did I get him off of the line, my 454 pulled him like a raped ape up until Old Mill Road. He eventually flew right by me (and I was still gunning it), but he passed me like I was in slow motion. Didn't matter though, I won. Of course, he didn't pay up though. Again, didn't matter. Just happy I was able to shut this wannabe gangster's mouth up (he was talking shit all night that night).

    I mentioned this because I was curious. If you frequented this particular club, thought maybe you were there to witness it (quite a few years ago though)...

    Um and our cars came with more than 305hp in case you didn't know - it was underrated as shit to make the corvette look faster! - most bone stock LS1s dyno over 280rwhp even the automatics - you do the math 15%loss for M6 and 20%loss for 4L60Es
