    John Spina, owner of Casper's Electronics, used to have a Turbo Cobra. Not sure if that's the same car (his was white) or not but the plates are different. I remember one interesting fact he told me about the car was the driveshaft was only 12" long!

    There's a local guy here that has a grey with black stripes Cobra with a turbo 6, its a Factory Five kit car chassis, and runs 10's. He has taken it to several Cobra events and is always asked why just 1 pipe? Before he opens the hood, and it really pisses off the folks with a 427 when he runs faster than them :)

    Awesome turnout for your Buick show, wished ours could draw out that many turbo 6's! Cool indeed!

    Ah hah, on the video they say it's his second one. I remember seeing pics of a 1st gen CTS with a GN motor from IL with the same plates.

    For the record, Cadillac still makes some pretty good cars. Drove an ATS with the 3.6L and a CTS-V coupe & sedan around Road Atlanta the other day. Pretty impressive.

    We wouldn't want you to have to change your tattoo Louie.

    And yes, the new CTS Sport was at the track too. V6 twin turbo 420hp...but it was only there for show. The exterior and interior is much nicer than the current generation. I'm predicting a possible twin turbo V8 for the next V series.

    I'm still driving a Pontiac...for now. 6.2L LS3, 415hp, IRS, 14" 4-piston Brembos up front, FE3 suspension tuned at the Nurburgring. Sorry, but this thing is light years ahead of a TTA and I actually fit in it!
