1986 was a fair year for automobiles,
especially two that I recall. One was the little Dodge Omni GHL, and the
other, Porsches' 959 super car. The differences between these two
cars is immense. The GLH had a 4 cylinder engine with a compression
rate of 10:1, with 110 horse power and the 959 had a flat head 6
with a compression rate of only 8.3:1, but it had 450 horse power.
The GLH would do 0-60 in 10 seconds, but the 959 did it in 3.7. I
don't recall the top speed of the GLH, probably over a 100, but the
959's top speed was 197mph. The GLH cost $10,000 and the 959,
does this have to do with me and Bill Gates? In 1986 we both bought
new cars. Guess which one I got?
