    Nice VW Bus, I love those.

    Oh and for anyone who says they have the best car on the forum, keep in mind I have 2300lb, 500hp Mazda RX7 in my driveway. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Wanna race that RX7? We have a 1968 Camaro that is being built... full tubular front end (dropped) with disk brakes, for 9" rear end with posi (disk also), some sweet other traction goodies etc etc... The car is stripped now and will go in to have the body work done in 2 weeks... Then we start putting the inside back together. After that comes the new Corvette 6 speed with the racing clutch, and the 398ci stroker we had built.... hehe Before we stripped it down, when it was still all drum brakes and other wise stock except for the motor (including no posi or any traction decices) we were running 13.7 QM I'm assuming very low 12s high 11s once we toss it all back together.

    Wow I would love to see a photo of the 1968 Camaro that is one fav's.

    My all time favorite car is the 1969 Camaro. I got to ride in one last spring that was running mid 11s and had a full nitrous system. There are nothing like those 60s muscle cars.

    Here is the 1969.

    Hmm, it would be a fun race. Problem is, I build my cars for corners, I have no idea how it would do at a drag strip. But I have not come across an old shcool mucle car yet that could even come close to an RX7 on a track. The last RX7 that I put on the drag strip was a 1st gen(FB) running a N/A 20b race motor I built. The fastest I got it was 11.6 in the quarter mile. That little guy was a blast [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I wish I still had it.

    heres my ride..i bought it from an upperclass-men last december, and she flies. shes got a 351 Clevland in her and is said to put out 300 horsepower with the two barrel set up its got. My friend who i bought it from said he had it up to around 165. The speedometer only goes to 120 but she will wrap way past it.

    This is my old car. 1997 Lincoln Mark III. Slightly warmed over it turned a 14.01 second 1/4 mile at 101 on the local drag strip. I caught a Vette sleeping at the line and he could not believe he got beat by a Lincoln.

    This is my new car. I think it is rather attractive retro styling and the ladies just love it...rather important. It comes from the factory with 280 hp and is plenty quick enough for me at my advanced age. However, a K&N filter, 71 mm throttle body, underdrive pulleys and a set of custom headers will make me even happier. Remember this...nothing has ever been produced that has too much horsepower...except possibly our space shuttle.
