I must disagree here...the T-birds kick ass for bracket racing...it's a
Mustang with a big trunk (overhang).  With a decent set of tires, they'll
hook on ice -- even to the extent that the added weight isn't a penalty
(in some cases).

I've seen several mid-14 second turbo birds with very mild mods...a couple
on radials.  They hook so hard (or try to) that they wheel-hop severely
and crack the bottom of the C-pillar.  As a fox platform, though...you
just can't lower them and make it to hook.
