There were cars there (Honda seemed to be the primary make) that were running 8s that sounded almost like a stocker w/a little louder exhaust when idling. Running turbos and a LOT of boost. Some of them were down right awesome.
I wasn't entirely being facetious when I joked about working for the Secret Service because I was on board with the idea of cheap and available.

I got into hotrodding musclecars because that's what people were selling cheap back in the '70s. Maybe it was different in your neck of the woods, but I could pick up Superbee or a 460 Gran Torino for next to nothing. If I had to do it all over again now, and use whatever was least expensive on the used market, it would probably be something Japanese.
