The Sonoma is definately crazier, but there's something to be said for making a Cadillac with a curb weight of 5,709 lbs. hustle to 60 faster than a Z06 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I believe Hans Stuck drove it to one of the fastest times ever. amazing.

Yup, around 7:50. That's BTW in the realm of highly moded Porsches, Murcielago, GT2s and the Pagani Zonda. Not too shabby for "just another SUV", huh?

Nuremburg???? Do you mean the Nurburgring?
I know the 'ring is a track, I just don't know where in Germany it's located.
Nuremburg perhaps?

Read the title again.... Lingenfelter
You get what you pay for. MTI, Cartek & DRM do great work but they aren't even in the same circle as LPE.

Yeah, but you wouldn't get the GM Motorsports aluminum block, and the engine wouldn't be 7.0-liters...

Anybody hear how John is doing? I seem to remember he was in bad shape a while back.

Here is a link on the web site

Looks like he is still in a coma.

No, the Nürburgring isn't related with the city of Nürnberg. They both are in completely different parts of Germany. While Nürnberg is in the north of Bavaria (but in the south of Germany), the Nürburgring is in the south-west of Germany. Also check that there is a different spelling of the two words.

Nope Nuremberg is a few hundred kilometers away. The Nürburgring is in the Eifel mountains, near Cologne (it´s actually quite a bit away from there, but the track is basically in the middle of nowhere).

Ouch.......nice of you to insult my city.
Not a big city, but Bonn is pretty close.
