Cool Quarter Mile times

My son went to a recent drag strip event and came back with some numbers from those who rode.

Low 11 sec was the best (proper drag car) but most street (blinged up) cars pulling 14-15's

What kind of times would our Saab's have put in?

I've done a 10.1 on a bike. I think my old T8 is best timed with a calendar from a standing start...

Not worried if the times are slow just out of interest really

John Z Williams is running low 13's at altitude but other than that I don't think many people on here drag Saabs. Have a look here http://www.dragtimes.com/Saab--all-Drag-Racing.htmlFunnily enough the best times are by Scandinavian maniacs

'Course not.It was one of the first Suzuki GSXR 750s.
Funnily enough about that time I was looking to buy a Saab 900 Turbo but the insurance stopped me.
