[DML] Fast Car?

To add to what has all ready been said...

When I get this question the "askers" are usually talking quarter mile times. I
make sure to tell them in a quarter mile most cars can beat the D because the
lack of HP and the tall gear ratio, but on a curvy road the D (at least mine &
the way i drive :-) will beat most of the cars that will smoke me in the quarter.

To reiterate, the D IS fast but not quick.

I have people ask me the usual questions I'm sure all of us hear (what 
does it cost?  Where do you get parts for it?  Is the flux capacitor 
working?  How many engines did GM produce for these?  etc.), but I 
don't know the answer to one of them:  "Is it a fast car?"  Seeing 
it's 25 years old, I don't drive it "fast" - usually 75 on the 
interstate, but never over 80, which means I'm in the center lane.  
But assuming it was in perfect shape, and nothing would fall off, is 
it considered a fast car?  How fast?  Would it be passed by a Toyota 
Pruis?  A mustang?  Corvette?  Had a Lamborghini blow by me today on 
the interstate, didn't even think about trying to speed up a little to 
check it out.  How does it compare to other cars out there?
