Hey, lookin' through all my old magazines, I mean old! and I found an old motor trend you guys might like to know bout. It's from 1990, and it's reviewing all the foreign sedans. And they post the quarter mile times on it. I was laughing bout it cuz I was lookin' at the specs of the old Altima (stanza) at that time, and the older fourth or was it third generation accord. But here it is.

The honda accord EX 130 hp and 142 lbs ft of torque (5sp)
The Nissan Stanza GXE 138 hp and 148 lbs ft of torque (5 sp)
Both single overhead, but the stanza has the 2.4 and the accord has the 2.2

1/4 mile times
honda accord EX 17.2 @80.2 mph
Nissan Stanza GXE 16.8 @82.3 mph
Hell even the protege beat the EX accord. And the Miata MX-5 ran 16.9. Weird. Anyways, thought I'd share some history there.

(motor trend magazine March 1990 vol 42 NO.3)

it's too bad the stanza did not do better, it could outrun and outhandle both of those cars, minus the miata of course
