    Chap 'Wow, my dad had one of these it's in fantastic condition and .........."

    I bought a really old Honda accord 2 litre v tec 39,000 miles full service history. Cheap runabout.
    Top spec but if you put you foot down that variable valve timing cuts in ....it goes like stink !!

    The acceleration is really really fast ! And the bose sound system well ........

    No when I bill them I say there's an extra tenner on the job cos it's an old uneconomical car and I like blowing people off in it !

    You can be driving fast ....floor it to drop the gears ( it's automatic ) and it flies forward it actually pushes you back in to your seat.
    It's just a bit of fun at the moment.

    Goes like stink does make me laugh back in the day an Escort Mexico 1.6 crossflow with twin 40dcoes went like stink, but on paper it was pathetic :D I remember first driving a Mk3 Escort RS Turbo around 1985 and being wow'd by it. i tihnk about 132 bhp and 0-60 about 8secs.
    Back around that time we had the likes of Martin Schanches Ford Rs200 with 450bhp managing 0-60 around 2.5 seconds

    Drove my mates M4 (440 ish bhp) few weeks back i think something like 0-60 in 3.8 feels rapid, proper grin factor up to er 70. But then we now have cars like the boring looking 4 seater Tesla model S doing sub 3 second 0-60.. bonkers.

    Anyway i missed the fact your honda engine was a beaut with Variable valve timing again ahead of it's time, always had a soft spot for Honda engineering.

    American V8 muscle cars;)

    If is an 8os car ditch all the smog and environmental cr*p ;)

    The Transam will do 15 ish to the gallon

    Corvette slightly more ( smaller engine)

    Worst petrol consumption vehicle I ever owned was a Bedford CF van doubt if that did 12 to the gallon 2 litre vauxhall Victor engine that low geared u could pull away in 3rd :eek:
