Ooooooh the 944. Great car for the price! I understand the handling is fantastic with those things. Have fun restoring it, I definitely envy you. If I were in a position to do so, I'd love to purchase a 1980's Porsche for a good price, be it a 944, 911 or 928, and drive it on occasion.
Tell you what Emirates. If it's my TDI Jetta, I'll do a 24 hour endurance race with you on a proper track. You wont stand a chance. If it's my dad's Passat (just like the Intrepid is your mom's), I'll do either the endurance race, or a quick race with you on a proper track. The TDI wont win a quick race, but will win the endurance race without a sweat against the Intrepid. And that's with just 90hp.
