- None, right now. Bye Bye Mustang. :-(
I kept having images of the "Panda Limo" running through my head...It's big and all, but I wouldn't want to deal with the terrible gas mileage nor would I enjoy the idea of trying to wrangle that monster outside of the highway.
I've got more information on the Reatta, my suspicions were correct and the car is indeed packing a later supercharged 3800, and when I found out who was behind the build I should have known. It's Dave Morrow who put an SC 3.8 in his Bradly GT kit car for a race last year along with a stuffing a Pontiac 400 into an old Supra to create "The Judge", the Bradly destroyed a wheel bearing and was sacrificed to the crusher while the "GTO" imploded and somehow shot a pushrod through its oil pan. I'm fairly certain that the same 3800 that was housed in the Bradly is now powering the Reatta.
Last I heard the Reatta was leading Class-C by a half dozen laps, so I'm very interested to see how things turn out.
And, just wondering...didn't the Reatta originally have the same engine? Without the supercharger I mean?
If that's the case, and with it's tranny being able to (hopefully) handle the HP and torque of the 3800...the Reatta should be super fast.
