2000 GT vs. TR7

So some kid says he has a Triumph TR7 and swears he can beat me in a race. I looked it up and it's on time magazines 50 worst cars at of all time. He swears it's fast and even told somebody it was a Ferrari! He told me it has racing headers that double Hp and even if that was possible it would only be 270 hp. Does this stuff always happen with owning a mustang? If he keeps continuing I might have to take him to the local track to shut him up.

There's way to many "this vs that" threads

Just race, what do you have to lose??? I can't hate too much cause I did this when I was 16, but now I just race, I don't care if the odds are stacked against me. Just have fun and you'll be surprised with some outcomes and disappointed with others. I have beating cars I was never suppose to beat "on paper", but driver mod prevailed, so who knows

Go out there and put another win on the board for the 2v stangs

At 2200 lbs they are decent with 130 hp. If he REALLY (which I doubt) have 250+, you'd be in trouble.

He swears it's mean. I'm pretty sure it's the stock motor. I'm gonna have to invite him out to the track this spring.

What really got me is when he told somebody it was a Ferrari. Lol. And then that day he was talking to me about mustangs and asked me if they had a twin V8 mustang now because he heard that they did.

Everyone tries to say how much faster their POS than our mustangs. Happens to me all the time.

He's really stupid when it comes to cars. The things he tries to talk to me about cars is just hilarious.
