Lovely Color. That 1/4 Trap speed seems kind strange no?

And that Omni GLHS! Know that was one hell of an interesting car, an Omni..AND a Shelby lol

However, I still progress, My favorit car Below 1980, is the 1973 AC Frua 428 Coupe!!

The 112mph trap speed is legitimate. I'm not sure about the 13.8sec time though. Back in those days, quarter-mile tests were done separately from acceleration tests; Dodge still conducts this separation with their rear-wheel-drive muscle cars, although other manufacturers steered clear from the tradition since the 1980s-90s.

The first Shelby Cobra. It's the only Cobra that still stay in Carroll Shelby personal garage. Road and Track test this car in 1962 and praise it very well.
