Oh yea, I would agree that your loosing HP with that many miles. My Firebird has 156k on the original engine, which many would say is impressive for an American V8. Does it really wow you in the corners? Anyway nowadays I think BMW's do a good job in a straight line too. They arn't the top of course, but they hold their own.

156k is not much on one of those 350s though I think. The engines like the 350, 302, 289, 351, those small blocks have been around so long, they are built pretty well. Even my 4.0L, which isn't the best engine, has 112k miles, and runs like it was new.

Electric shifter, so you can't pull some Fast and Furious shit, and shift it from 3rd to Reverse with 50" drag slicks to hook onto the gas tanker?...

Awesome job that lets you drive those cars around though.

Yeah, the model you drove has the Audi DCT SMG gearbox. It also comes in a standard six speed manual model as well.
