Remember Adrian,

14-15 sec range.
Almost all cars, even econboxes are much quicker nowadays.
Grassroots Motorsports did a track test with a vintage racecar and a new
a couple years ago. The Minivan was quicker around a road course by several

> Hi Folks,
> Just yesterday I passed a lady cradling her infant in her arms.  Nothing
wrong with that but she was driving a big SUV at the time.  Which got me
thinking that I need to tune up this MG in case I need to get out of her way
in a hurry one day.  This MG has got zero acceleration.  Sure, you can get up
to 70 mph no problem, but it takes a while.

> Anyways, my MG runs great. starts first time, etc, but when you put the hoof
down, nothing happens except a leisurely increase in speed.  I mean, at least
my Toyota makes a big screaming noise when I do that.
> Cheers,  Adrian
