Back in the day (Mid 80s) my old man agreed to store a couple of Packards on our property for a drinking buddy of his...... They were not in great condition to start (Major surface rust) but they were cool as hell. Unfortunately the guy never came back for them and they deteriorated so much that I believe my Dad eventually just sold them as scrap. They had rectangular flat 6's

Actually now that I think of it it was likely a Straight 8 but it was all engine block and flat on the top

It’s bigly profitable especially for the typical consumer that buys Hyundai/KIA’s (appliance vehicles). Most Hyundai/KIA owners have no clue nor would they care to have a clue about cars. They just want it to turn on and drive.

Packard held onto the straight 8 way too long. Well into the 50s when everyone else was introducing more powerful and compact V8s. They finally came out with a V8 in the mid/late 50s, but it was a little too late at that point.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Focus ST and an E46 330 both beat me by a few tenths. The other top folks in PAX were in a DS WRX and an ES MR2 Spyder, it was a really really tight course. I used 1st gear for 80% of the thing, only grabbing second briefly in one spot - the site is 20 minutes from my place but I wouldn't go back there.

There's one good site about an hour from here and apparently that's the only one worth running at in NY. Several different clubs run there throughout the summer.

I don't know if I'll bother continuing to run the MKZ, it's both fun and frustrating at the same time.
