A dyno queen, a term I feel I may have coined, or heard somewhere a long time
ago, I forget, is a car that makes a lot of power on the dyno, but on the
street isn't driveable for sh*#t becuase of massive turbo lag, horrible part
throttle tuning and performance, etc.  Its easy to get a car to post big #'s on a
dyno compared to making a car that is fast and can actually drive.

Its like a "garage queen", looks pretty sittin' there.
