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.....
someone said I should follow my dreams,,so I went back to bed...

1200-1500 hp? Wow. Might as well add some wings to it and lease on with Delta :lol2:

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.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT
