Its a 79 olds 406SBC for now. Guy said it would run 10.5's. I made 7 passes. Went from mid 12's to [email protected]19 the last pass. Every pass got better. First 2 passes scared the sh!t out of me. Pulls the front wheels 14" on launch. Im hooked.

neat car.


The first time I took my car down the track I felt like I must have been setting a new track record or something

til they gave me the time slip.
:lol:
P.S. I left on the top yellow too....I had a trans brake but forgot to push the button..... :oops:

Cool car,but just remember to drive safe and use your head.
I have a THINK sign on my dash. That helps me to relax and go through the motions before I hit the line. Sometimes the guy in the other lane wants to play games with you but if you race your own race you'll end up kicking his ass :wink:
Remember to have fun,thats what its all about :D

Very cool. I had a '78 in high school. Won my championship in street in an '83.

Very sweet! I just got rid of a '78 last year. Missed it almost immediately.
