What's even funnier is the hate mail SCC got after publishing that article. People were concerned that the kid didn't have anything to drive now, lol! If that story is true I'm sure SCC had an extra econo-rocket lying around.
That was hilarious! Very ballsy to poke fun at their own audience (the part of their audience that spends thousands on paint, spoilers, body kits, and obnoxious exhaust and think somehow it makes them think that they can outrace you). I got a laugh from the '87-89 Grand Am with hydraulics and headlight covers that tried to outrace my '00 Grand Prix GTP. He cocked the ass of the car up into the air like it would make it take off faster.
