I'll vouch for that one too....that bodystyle is good for a nice mid 15 sec 1/4 mile, especially an auto, even reletively well modded (those years dont mod too well without getting into the engine or at least replacing the heads) you should easily take one from a dig if you can drive, and from a roll you'll take him if hes stock or close to.
He said 4.6L which means its the GT with the 4.6L V8
the car is slow. In MT form it high 14's lower 15's. The automatic version (the one in question) runs higher 15's and is a complete dog. He has NOTHING to worry about from this car at all.
