|Right, thats a good one. I got another. How about the Mustang II. Everyone thought of them as a "Grandma's Car", but you could get some serios power out of the car. I mean, the Cobra II was a speedy little car...~DAVEY007|
power doest mean a lot when your car is ugly as sh*t. no matter how fast you go, your car is going to be laughed off the drag strip

|Ford Taurus SHO is about all I can think of now.|

|1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, an amazingly fast car, actually proved as the best muscle car of all time, but for some reason people tend to overlook it, probably because of it's limited production.|
a lot of people know its packin, but dont know what it packs. pushing a 3500 pound car to 60mph in 5 seconds is no easy feat now, and most certainly wasnt 30 years ago.

You can get this car called a Mitsubishi Chariot (Nimbus in other markets) It's like a people-mover but a bit lower and more car-like, sort of a taller bigger station wagon. Anyway, imagine a 5-door family wagon.....but with a 5-speed AWD engine and driveline and a 4G63B turbo!!! Or if you like, an Eclipse GSX with 5 doors and alot of space. You could also get a 3-door version called the RVR which had the same de-tuned Evo driveline. The coolest car of this family though was the RVR Hyper Sports Gear R....which was basically the same as the others but it had Recaro seats, a front-mount intercooler, TDO5-16G turbo, and bigger injectors.
seen a few of these as well as the Chariot versions run into the 13's with only light modifications. They squat like mad when they launch hard too.
also, the Daihatsu Charade GT-ti.....998cc and 3 cylinder's worth of front-wheel drive fury!!!
Yeah it doesn't look like much, Hell it even sounds like less, but these are definitely one of those underestimated little cars. They're light as anything and those little engine's can take high boost levels and make a sh*tload of power. There's currently one for sale on a website thats running 18 psi on it's factory forged internals. Because they're so nimble they'll out-handle nearly everything too. There are examples getting around that'll cane Evo's and WRX's on a racetrack. And they're only lightly-modded streetcars with bigger turbos, intercooler etc. Good thing is, They're also cheap to get power out of because what may seem small on a normal-sized performance car, will probably be huge when used on a car like this so people often utilise surplus factory parts from other cars on them.

|Underdogs... I never heard that term. Sleepers are what they called I belive.|
Then your obviously not English, who always support the underdog.
Never Underestimate an original mini from 0-45mph
The Latest Vauxhall Vectras with the 3.2L engine...bizarrely fast. 160mphish
And Hyundai Coupes (Tiburon), also very quick...

|Hey, I think I came up with a new one... Chevolet Monza's. You could get some real power into those cars. I dont think all of the tarus's(SP) are underdogs. The SHO's are though...in my book.~DAVEY007|
Monza's weren't underdogs everywhere, some funny cars actually had monza bodys. OT ha, ha Davey got banned! JK Well he did, but I'm not really making fun of him.
