    That video never gets old. Thanks for posting it I had it awhile ago but it got deleted from my computer. Thanks. The turbos sticking out of the hood on that Grand National are scary looking. Honestly what kind of monster actually burns out on a dyno?

    I would love a ride in that beast. What I don't understand is how you can put over 1,000 hp to a dyno with rubber tires driving a metal drum.

    I've always liked the old Grand National. What a nasty little v6. You ever looked under the hood? The engine looks tiny in that huge car.

    I've had two of them in the past. Extremely cool cars to say the least. The one in the movie is a T-Type, not a Grand National, although the powertrain is identical. I can only imagine the numbers he is putting down through the 1/4 mi. I was running 10.4's @ 128mph with *only 450rwhp and 620ftlbs, I would guess he's somewhere in the 7-8 range if he can hook. One of the few respectable american cars IMHO.

    I can't imagine putting full power down on the street. Maybe with DOT approved "street slicks" , but even then...
