Uh, OK. As someone who drives an econobox with an 86-HP 4 banger, I wish you all the enjoyment in the world with your gas-guzzling toys, so long as you don't hit me.

A lot of the older ones only get driven a quarter mile, or so, on weekends, usually on the other side of a fence and use nitromethane (CH3NO2) rather than gasoline (C8H18) - a little like gasoline that has been pre-mixed with nitrous oxide - It comes with its own oxygen atoms to help it burn.
