The guy in a nice Mid/late 2000's M5, tastefully modded exterior wise, cut in front of my getting on the freeway, his mistake was thinking he'd lose me on the clear 360degree on ramp. I was right on his bumper as we exited the on ramp onto the freeway. Which then turned into dragrace onto the clear freeway straight away, i pulled 3 car lengths on him when he shifted, I hit 4th and watched him disappear!


Is the spoiler rigid? If so, does it come off easily for when you put the car on a trailer?

Don't feel bad about people not getting what the car is about. I had Mopar people walk right by it at a Mopar show. It's not shiny, and it's not a Barracuda, so it doesn't grab most people's attention.

I only wish I had open roads to drive it on when I had it. Way too congested where I live for those sort of shenanigans.

Apologies for revving an old thread...but that made my morning! Too cool, man. Showing-up BMW M cars has got to be one of driving's greatest pleasures, especially in a car like the Valiant.

Any progress since May?

This car was mentioned in a discussion over on the "corners are best" section and I had to read up. This thing is just too cool for words.
