The stacks might not look like they're the same height, but they were within a tiny bit of an inch. Just thought that this fact was interesting even if not totally scientific.

Well, not right now as the Civic is blocking in the Porsche. And it's dark out. And we're about to head up to bed. smiley

Horsepower is close, too: 205 for the Civic and 200 for the Porsche. The Civic weighs a little more, though: 3002 pounds vs. 2760. But the Civic has working a/c.

(Oh yeah, this is a 3.2 Carrera that's wearing Turbo wheels, not an actual Turbo.)

Pretty neat.  I wish I had photos of my 91 ZR-1 stack next to a Miata stack.  It was almost humurous.

Good morning. It's still dark out. And my wife just took the Civic to a half marathon. And I have to go watch a rocket (hopefully) explode.

OK, I had to go look that up.  But yes, that makes sense and isn't mean-spirited.  :-)

No prob. Glad I made the trip--it's just an hour each way. And, added bonus, my friend Kelly joined me. She was like, "Go see a rocket explode? Sign me up." My wife ran a half marathon today. She doesn't think she heard the bang.
