    Kids will always modify what they have. They buy or dad gives them a Honda Civic and they put every mod they can buy to go faster.
    20 years ago we were into fixen up VW bugs. We were able to take a bug and with only a few thousand dollars beat all kinds of cars in the 1/4 mile. (Porche's, 5.0's, 240Z's, some Vette's and many others.) I had a buddy with a 2180 cc in a '61 bug that could even take a lot of muscle cars at top speed. It did about 150 mph, and with the hp to weight ratio, it got their pretty damn quick. It was fun to watch him beat a big V8 in the 1/4 then wait till they moved up next to him. They always wanted to save face, so they would roll on the gas and try and leave him. He would roll on too and begin losing them again. Kinda emabarrasing for the guy in the V8.
    Now I'm not talking tricked V8's here before you start bashing, I'm talking stock American sports cars.
