Oh, absolutely... I owned a '68 MB 220D (non turbo). Now picture a 2 ton 
car with 50hp! (Not sure the numbers, but Ill bet Im not far off!) That 
car was a blast to drive, On my way home from work, I would regularly 
race my friend in his old VW bug. Close race! Its the only street legal 
racing that I know of! :)  If we saw a cop, we would just keep going, 
because chances are we still werent speeding.  Even full bore up a hill, 
we would have people behind us honking at us to get going.  Little did 
they know...
