GM have offered to restore the damaged cars because 'they are some of the most significant models in automotive history'

I love quotes like these. 230 from an engine assembled in 2 minutes, and run on soapy water. Bring it to the UK and with a little attention to detail, a proper setup and good fuel and you'll see 350-400 without much effort :handgestures-thumbup:
In the US you can find 200 hp in your garage at home and for next to sod all money. You try doing that with our engines... I know what'd put a bigger smile on my face!

The aftermarket modding market in the US is huge. People pick up their brand new car and drive it from the showroom to the modders to free up an extra few hundred HP that the original engineers couldn't be bothered to find. I guess it's a whole economy we don't have...but still makes I laff.
