Cool lincoln continental vs. trans-am

it was a couple months ago, i was following my bro in our 87 5.0 mustang.
so we come to a greenlight and he makes it through but i dont, so i stopped and was like FU**. i had my grandmother in the car and she's like well catch up to him, he doesnt know were he;s goin. so here comes this red trans-am that pulls up beside me, and the guy gives me that look like (you can touch this.) so i was like whatever a**hole.
light turns green ( he thought i wasn't gonna race).
i nail it.
i get to about 50 before he realizes what happened then he nails it(that shit was loud) and by now i'm doin 70. he started relly catchin up by the time
i had to stop for the next red light. so we both stop and he rolls his window down and says damn dude what's that thing got in it?
i say "de-tuned mustang cobra motor"
he says "that thing pretty quick for a grandma car"
light turns green.
(were not gonna race cuz i'm going left)
end of story.

of course if it was a tru race i would have lost lol


here's a vid of the lincoln



it's fun driving a sleeper

I would hardly call it a sleeper -Maybe if it did like a 13 second 1/4 mile.... Debadge this and you've got yourself a sleeper.

If it was a sleeper, you wouldn't have to say "of course if it was a tru race i would have lost"

it's a SLEEPER because in no way does it appear liike a sports car, but it's still pretty quick.
and i would have lost cuz that trans-am was pretty modded

You'd lose to a stock trans-am, and that E class doesn't look like a sports car either, but will run low ti mid 12 second 1/4 miles all day stock. If your continental had like 400 HP, that'd be a sleeper right there.... you should get on that!

Did someone say "sleeper car"?


Also, what did your grandma have to say?

it was a 98 i think, and the continental is faster than the mustang, the mustang only has cam headers and exhaust
here's a vid

E63, and it looks no different from the E350 except for the exhaust and body kit. I don't think it looks fast at all.

There is no way your continental is faster than that car. I'd like to see some kind of video proof.
