Any more questions?
So basically, you just don't like Japanese cars.

And evidently, because you don't like them, they are not fast, even when they are faster than fast cars.

I used to occasionally see a Renault R5 Turbo around NJ. Made some interesting sounds and would reportedly outrun most before its barn door aerodynamics took over around 100mph or so.

For modified, there was a guy in my NJ town that put a 327 SB Chevy in a first generation Corvair.

IMO, a Buick Lucerne with the Northstar and Magnetic Ride Control is a excellent sleeper.
You'd be shocked at how much you can fling that big boy around. Plus it's pretty quick with that V8.

And it looks just like Grandpa's car so it gets zero attention from the cops.

My 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, is perhaps one of the best factory sleepers ever. It's a big heavy car and don't really stand out all that much from a regular 300. But, with a big 6.4 392 hemi, this hauls you know what. This car holds it own with most cars on the road today, as well blowing the doors off most. Chrysler discontinue the 300 SRT8 version in 2014, as all the SRT cars will be moving to Dodge exclusively. These SRT 300 from 2012 to 2014 are extremely rare, very few of them were made and sold here in the states.

But unlike other hemi cars, the 300 SRT have no hemi badges on it at all nor does it have any 300 badges on it. It only have that one kind of small SRT logo on the back. Most people don't have a clue, and most didn't even know Chrysler made a 2nd generation 300 SRT. Usually, only the car enthusiast can tell and know the difference, and a few others may notice something different but can't figure out what. I actually believe most people think the SRT badge on the back is fake anyway, because the car is so rare to see on the road. I have had to pop the hood several times in order for people to believe it have a 6.4 hemi under there.
