I went to a drivers ED hosted by the local Z06 club a few years back. Many there were running their new 505 hp Z06 that they had just paid $85k or more for. Some of those had aftermarket mods as well.

They made fun of my 1985 oil dripping 930 at the morning meeting. They said to make sure to be careful when they passed me. Few ever got the chance. If I had brought better tires, none would have come close. Try that with a 20+ year old car of any other kind.

At the end of the day they were all very impressed with the old car. Most were stunned that their new "hottest car on the block" could not keep up with my old, obsolete, 930.

PS> It was the car not the driver that impressed them. I don't drive to get really fast. I drive to get really happy.
