this was my roommates car.. At the time it had a bored and stroked 400 small block, Turbo350 tranny, high stall converter, dominator carb, 500 single stage shot of nitrous, and yes, he bottle launched it.. best on that engine was a 8.80 quarter mile.. Later he built a 632cu in big block, 3 stages of nitrous and a powerglide.. don't know what it's best time on that setup was.. was a totally crazy car to be in

If you can find one already built ,and resonable ...best go that route..you can sink a ton in a restoration...I'm slowly doing just that..if I hadn't bought this one as a kid,, I wouldn't touch it..

Thats for sure, I agree. I just like doing the build, it may take me awhile. I am currently building a 2000 Mustang Gt with 14' Coyote 5.0 with turbo hooked to a powerglide with a 4500 stall. I figure by the time I get it on the road, it will be a 2.5- to 3 year build. On paper it should be pushing 1200-1500hp to the ground, thats in theory.

Guess I should of said mine is a Chevelle SS.....

These are all I got for now. I am shooting for low 8 seconds in the quarter, high 7's would be sexy though.

What year? BBC? Any pics?
I love them Chevelles, I had a 69 GTO and my buddy had a 68 Chevelle with a 4 spd. We had a blast tearing up the streets back then

I know where a late 60's corvette is sitting in a barn. Been there since the mid 80's I know. Found out last week that it had been used to run shine. When the owner went straight he just parked it there.
