I've got this girl that wants to drag race me on my bike with her 65 mustang, once I can ride again that is. Is it just me or does this sound like she is talking alot of shit. She says her 0-60 is 2.5 sec, and her top speed is 220. She doesn't race professionally, just street races, so their is no money involved from what I can tell. She also says she isn't running any nitros or anything. There is no way she could be running those kinds of times is there, I mean without doing som SERIOUS work on her car. She is 17, and doesn't have a job so I don't see how she could have put that much work or money into it. Let me know what you all think, I'm hoping she is just trying to impress me... because that would mean I have a chance with her lol.

sounds fishy. a 220 top speed may be possible (but still unlikely), but a 0-60 in 2.5 seconds is bordering on lunacy. Look at the tires, if they arent racing, its all crap. Especially given that it all comes from a 17 year old..
But you might want to let her win anyway :D

I'm pretty sure its all just crap and she is trying to impress me. But when I get my arm outta this sling I'm gunna give her a shot and see what she can do. She will win the first time around atleast though;) I already had that in mind. This car is also "Kept in her friends garage" which also makes it sound more fishy. I haven't met her yet, just talked with her online and we have some mutual friends, so I can't really do much for judgement yet. I think she came up with the 2.5 second time off the top of her head because she asked what my 0-60 was and I said between 4 and 5 seconds (yea I know I exaggerated a little bit too, but atleast mine is well within possibility and completly beleiveable)

I smell BS.

Has she run the 1/4 yet? 220mph sounds pretty damn impossible. How is she going to have a 65 Mustang hit top speeds higher than a Mclaren???

You should smoke her ass.

Sepias...your bike does 0-60 A LOT quicker than "4-5 seconds."

I'd bet no slower than 3 seconds flat. I've seen my tank online listed at 3.3.

Hi SepiasSoul-

You're just kidding with us, right? :p

A modern Porsche Carrera GT has a top speed of 205 m.p.h. (that's 329 k.p.h. for you, cookeetree!) and a 0-60 m.p.h. time of 3.5 seconds. It achieves this performance from a huge engine making tons of horsepower at the very affordable price of $440,795 so call your local Porsche dealer now for competitive financing rates!

Does this girl really think her forty-year-old car can outperform the half-million dollar vehicle hyperlinked above? My personal assessment is she is looking for any excuse to speak with you in an attempt to have you ask her on a romantic date. Instead of a race, offer to take her out to a nice restaurant and a movie and let us know her response.

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to be getting in way over my head if/when I take her on. Hopefully Ill get a date outta all this work lol. Here to hoping:drool:

You would be suprised. I know of a couple people with 40+ year old cars that are completely rediculous. I have a friend who built a early 1900's ford roadster and he runs 9 seconds flat in the quarter and still drives it on the street, but I think this girl is out of her mind. 0-60 in 2.5 seconds!! Not without slicks! Tell her I will come down there and race her for $$$$ with my car. I could use a few extra dollars LOL :)

LMFAO this is a funny thread.

#1 dude how old are you? shes 17 right??? JAILBAIT!!!!

#2 you "asked her out" or "called her out"...???

#3 id like to be optimistic since i own a 77 cobra, but NO WAY IN EFFING HELL does any 65 stang, i dont care what you do to it, run a 2.5 0-60 and 220mph top speed....thats just ridiculous!

no offense, but dude use your brain next time and think for a second if it sounds right...

#4 your bike is wayyyyyyy faster 0-60 than 4 or 5 seconds, its prob right around 3.

#5 you cant beat her now cause u wont get any play if you do

#6 shes kinda a moron, so i wouldnt wanna date an idiot like that anyways (i didnt say do other things, i said date)

u should post up a pic of this "girl" and her "car", cause i think shes blowin smoke out of her hopefully beautiful @$$!!

Hi Wheelie_Steve:

The friend whom you know with the 100-year-old Ford has given you incorrect numbers. That quarter-mile figure is considerably faster than either a new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (see below) or Saleen S7. He or she is really making himself/herself look really foolish by saying things like that to you.

President Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) had recently returned from leading us to victory in the Spanish American War by charging up San Juan Hill on horseback with his troops. How many cars from that era (as claimed by your confused friend) have cars faster than this one:



Please tell your friend to stop this nonsense immediately!

That's total BS Sepias. To get those kind of numbers you'd have to have a Big Block alcohol burning 1000 hp monster motor in a totally gutted, tube framed Drag car. Even then the 0-60 time wouldn't be 2 freakin' seconds.

I hate people like that. If I were you, I'd just say "Yeah, whatever......" :finger: and leave it at that.

F*****g waste of time.

People like that aren't worth the skin they're printed on.

Here are some relative REAL TESTED TIMES for some cars, the first number is 0-60 time and the second is 1/4 mile time:

Bugatti 2006 Veyron 2.3 10.8
This is a $1.2 million sports car

Dodge 1996-2002 Viper Hennessey Venom 1000TT 2.3 9.52
I dont know how much this costs, but we all know how expensive viper's are, so now add turbo's and all the upgrades, were talkin couple hundred thou.

2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 4.6 12.8
$237850 MSRP...id say a litte more than a 65 stang

2005 Ford GT 3.6 11.78
These run what, atleast $110g??

2002 Lamborghini Murcielago 3.6 12.0
Eh, these only start at around $230,000

1997 McLaren F1 3.9 11.7
It's a mclaren f1 for christ sake, come on, i dont even wanna know how expensive they are

2002 Mosler MT900 Photon 3.1 11.0
powered by a chevy 350 Z06 engine, this cute car will only run you $210,000

2005 Porsche 911 GT2 3.6 11.7
Base price...$191,700

2003 Saleen S7 3.3 11.8
starting at an affordable and economical $375,000

1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C 4.6 12.7
if she had this car, and has put in about another $200,000 into it on top of its hundreds of thousands collectors piece price, maybe shes running sub-3 seconds...maybe

NOW READY FOR COMPARISON??

1967 Ford Mustang (390ci V8 w/4spd) 7.4 15.6
That is the biggest engine they made...

1971 Ford Mustang (351ci V8 w/4spd) 5.8 13.8
Thats with the windsor motor....stock, which is fast for back then but still...not quite 2.5 lol


not saying you cant make an old mustang fast as shit, but 2.5 seconds...yeah right

maybe this helped put it in perspective a little better...fast = hell of a lot of money

I think wheelie steeve is talking about old body/new tech type of a car. If thats the case then I dont see why someone couldnt cram 1500hp into a 1900's body, on an all new frame. I remember reading about a 20's body doing 2.6s 0-60.

yeah but do you really think a 17 year old girl is going to have a 65 mustang that, in that case, would be worth atleast if not more than 100g? i mean come on, lets be realistic here. plus top speed of 220? try a funny car or sumthin, cause shes dreaming.

people, lets be realistic here, not "oh im sure it can be done" cause obviously it "could" be done....but hers isnt, id bet everything i had on it. no offense vash, this isnt directed necessarily at you.

Yea, just because a car is very expensive, does not mean it will beat older cars in the quarter. Actually, are we talking street legal cars? If not, I know some people around here with a Mustang and an old Camero that will kill the Bugati in the quarter.

neller: I was just coming at it from the "it can be done angle" more to counters blueys "its too old and cheap to be that fast" then to encourage Sepias. I think the girl is without any ride, in which case I'd much rather talk about souped up old monsters than jailbait.
