Funny thing is, I am a speed freak. I race motorcycles (on the track) I have had more moving violations (i.e., speeding tickets, but never a reckless charge) than I care to admit - it's a lot more than all your digits (seriously. - though those days are pretty far behind me now); just a week ago I was doing 130+ in my buddy's MINI... (so maybe not totally behind me... good thing my only drive is the Mirage, lol) blah, blah, blah.
BUT, my slowest car ever (considerably slower than the Mirage) was also my favorite, I miss that tank.
It was awesome.
My 1984 Volvo Diesel (normally aspirated straight 6 (by VW))(240 series, sedan) it was mated to a 4 speed with an electronic (planetary gear) OD. I was trounced by family members' n.a. Jetta & Rabbit diesels (we loved these things, lol). The Volvo couldn't get out of its own way...
I actually got out of my first 3 cylinder getting into the Volvo. I had a Chevy Sprint Turbo; that was essentially a turbo-ed 2 door Mirage (sans our 20+ years of safety technology!) and it scooted, fun, light, little car, kinda the antithesis of the Volvo tank.
Yep, I miss that Volvo, it could have only been better if it had been a wagon.
