What's your "other" car?

Wouldn't it be funny to do a "the slowest car you own" get together?

Then drive up to Canada (I have no interest to drive down to Mexico since I live in LA) or find a nice private road and do the "Who owns the fastest slow car" and
"Who owns the slowest slow car"


I personally have two slow cars, both 2007's
One is the largest selling eco-friendly Hybrid car.
The other is a Minivan.

I think it would be great to bring the minivan and see who I can beat with it. I'm sure there would be several people showing up with the weak Hybrids and who knows what else.

my slowest car would be my 1982 Celica GT with about 92 HP. it had worn rings and had problems getting out of its own way. If I put it on a dyno, it would probably read 40 rwhp (no kidding). I sold it.

My "other" cars currently:
84 Supra Turbo
87 Supra Tubro (faster than my 335i)
91 Mitsu eclipse gsx
92 GMC typhoon
93 Honda Civic VX (this car rules - gets over 50mpg)

Nissan Titan. Quick for a truck.
MCS. 29mpg city and funner to drive than my 335 was.

I don't think I have ever had what would be classified as a slow car.

The E30 is my only current "car" but it's the slowest thing I've ever owned - 138hp.
Currently looking at adding a 2009 Cadillac CTS to the stable.

Next slowest vehicle in the garage is a 2005 Kawasaki ZX6R - 112hp, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, 0-100 in 5.0 flat
