Now's the time to put her to bed Ted, post a time slip or some of the times you
run. Better yet post the site from the track you run at so we can all see how
well that 429 does against the Chevies. We have a few people on here that run
straight up on occasions.
Here's a site from one of my acquaintances from Canada, maybe close enough for
you to try him on. http://www.computersupport.ca/Restoration/Corvette.htm By the
way he drives it to events not a trailer queen.
Sad to say I'm a Mustang owner,
Yo Dad, there isn't a "crime" to owning one, even I will give them their
due. Unfortunately that particular model was "foisted" off on the buyer
to homologate the engine quickly for use in NASCAR, and as a result was
a particularly pathetic under engineered excuse for a musclecar. They
just used the mustang feeding frenzy and the large displacement to move
the toads. So someone bragging of owning one and using it as an example
of "ford performance" is pretty clueless as far as automotive knowledge
No crime to own one just shame to be associated with this type of owner. Makes
me believe that grayfaux reproduced. There never is that kind of attitude
exhibited by Corvette owners. :-))) Stop that, my ribs hurt now. I used to get a
kick out those old rumbling dinosaurs that couldn't get out of their own way.
With some good tuning you could expect a bit over 1/2 a horse per cube.
my car is not a trailer queen or a garage queen i drive it alot. and
excuse me for being a little(or alot)self conscious about my car.
odviously i dont belong in this discussion because im being attacked
by everyone(and i know i brought it on myself).i have owned the car
since 74 and i always loved it. im sure any other vehicle could have
the same effect on its owner.oh and my car rocked alot of trans
am's,chevells,etc....in its stalk days, so from what i have seen from
this car its not an underperformer.
Do the math, you're 42 and you've owned it since '74???? Now I know why it's not
a trailer or garage queen, as suspected, it doesn't exist. You didn't even
bother to guess what your times on the 1/4 were or could be. See those tail
lights in the distance? You're left behind again.
sorry ifs my gammar ins nots up..s to yous standards and no not 13, am
actually 42 (you could of asked before jumping to conclusions) and yes
AROUND 800hp 750-850hp (sorry but its a fact) i havent actually had
it dino teasted yet but ya 800hp . and what do you drive a 80hp
chevette and only dream of owning a nice car like maby a lumina(yay).
Dino tested? Pretty sure they're all extinct.
What do I drive. Hmm. I have three cars. The reason I am here is that I
have a 2007 Corvette convertible. I also have a 2003 BMW M3 convertible.
Both are great fun and living in Florida, the tops are down almost year
The most powerful car I currently own is my station wagon. It's a 2003 BMW
540i wagon with the VG engineering supercharger kit. If you're nearby,
let's meet at the Orlando drag strip. I won't bother to beat you with my M3
or C6, I'll blow you away in my wagon.
And no, I don't believe you own a 750hp car. Anyone capable of that could
communicate better and would at least understand the concept of paragraphs.
well i do have to admit bmw's are really nice cars and yes i am bad at
writing paragraphs but it doesent seem to bother any one else i know.
but belive it or not(i dont really care) my car does have around 750hp
its not even close to stalk any more.the interior, body, and engine
block are probably the only stalk things.and my car has a hard top,
because i live in canada (not that i take it out in the winter ).and
if you could define poseur then maby i could explain why it seems that
way. oh and my friend has a 89' 302 gt and it hase close to 600hp so i
dont think its that hard of a reach to make 800 from a very modified
429.oh ya making fun of some one who doesent remember how to spell
some words some time is weak.
