That thing was so stinking fast it was scary. He took me for a spin and hit 90 mph light to light in a fucking VW van! All I could think was... How are the brakes on this thing? And, what the fuck are we doing going this fast at 4:00 in the afternoon in a goddamn transporter on Sandy Blvd.?
I also remember VW Bugs at Bonneville Raceway during the 70's that claimed 900 hp. They were really fun to watch. I heard the engines were barely able to survive the night / weekend.
