We had a debate on the SHO cars here a little while back, personally I LIKE them but most of the other guys here don't :dunno: :dunno: And I know what you mean about them being quick, I have seen them run 12's at Jacksonville NC dragway on a few diffrent occasions. I would like to have one, for a 4 door family car with a smooth V-8 that can supprise a V-8 Mustang or Camaro.........that would be GREAT :dancing6:

The older V6 SHOs where a much better car than the newere V8 ones. The V8 ones are too heavy, not very fast, not very reliable (cam gears comming off), and dont handle all that well and you couldnt get a stick shift.

If you want an SHO the original version where not only faster, but better in about every way.

The V6 SHO's had Yamaha engines...right? A buddy had one, he really enjoyed the car. I personally did not like the styling, but a 12sec SHO would be sweet!
