How fast is it?
In spite of all the modifications, this Pony remains fully streetable and Don can often be seen cruising Woodward Avenue in the summer, or other popular cruise routes in the Detroit area. One time, while taking a close friend out for a ride, Don exceeded his friend's expectations ... by a lot. Apparently the friend had a lot of previous exposure to fast cars and he found this one beyond his comfort level. By the time they returned home, the friend was mumbling over and over that the car was "way too fast".
