110 Leaded Racing Gasoline - Cedar Rapids Iowa

There's a gas station near downtown that sells 110 leaded racing gasoline. I thought about filling up with it for some wknd fun but didn't know what the possible back lash may be.
Was also thinking about mixing a 91 octane and the 110 in equal amounts to get a boost but nothing that might hurt the engine (I always put in 91) but didn't know if the leaded/unleaded mix would cause problems.

Thoughts?

Additional Info: 2000 Auto SS - ram air. Everything else stock.

Yeah... there is a reason your car says 'unleaded only'. First, it will absolutely destroy your catalytic converter. And second, you're car is meant to run on 91 octane unleaded. Just fill up with that for the best performance. Running anything over 91 is not necessary and, if you're not tuned for it, higher octane will probably lessen your performance since it's more detonation resistant.

Sure did, was an upgrade from honda when I bought it off the lot, only cost 200 extra, pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Nah, but seriously, that's all I can afford right now. Was going to be different when I bought it but with the tranny going out all the moneys being saved for that but, it'll be a manual when I get the tranny done with So that's a plus.

I already fill up with 91 non-ethanol only since I bought the car so I'm on the plus side there. Thanks for responding that's the kinda answer I was looking for, thank you to the other ppl that responded to for taking the time to write.
