I got an email from someone that wants to use the pictures of my 300ZX for a piece of software that compares cars. In return, I asked him to use the software to determine which would win between my Z, a 1999 Mustang GT V8 and a 1995 TSi AWD Eagle Talon. Those just happen to be the cars that two of my coworkers have owned. The results were quite pleasing. 0-60 times were 5.0s (Z), 5.5s (Mustang) and a sluggish 6.3 (Talon). The quarter-mile race showed 13.7 @ 102mph (Z), 14.2 @ 98mph (Mustang) and a paltry 15.1 @ 87.9mph(Talon). Bragging rights are now official.
