    I had an 89... the ultimate stop light brawler... mostly because nobody expected to get spanked by a four door sedan... with three car seats.

    It was a quick sedan for its time just don't try and accelerate and turn the wheel at the same time.

    Multimatic ran one in CASC regionals and I think maybe some early Canadian Firehawk if I remember right, I think around 1989-90 or so. Scott Maxwell at the wheel. It was a mighty quick piece for the class it was in. I don't remember it running a lot though.

    Those early SHOs with the Yamaha were great cars for their time. A good buddy of mine had one. Definition of sleeper off the line. We used to joke about the engine being stout but the rest of it was Taurus and was falling apart.
