Re: Who here is into cars? Lets start a CAR THREAD!!
I grew on the the drag strip. My favorite smell is burned rubber and racing gas. I spent the majority of my life building cars (and trucks) with my dad.

I'd love to be able to do it again but it's a helluva expensive hobby.

Favorite car so far was the 67 Chevy II, everyone always thought she'd be to heavy (she wasn't) she could fly.

That has got to be really rare, because I thought you could only get the 289 for the v8 in '57.

On another note, a friend of mine who went to an auction of an antique car junkyard, got an old Chrysler with a 392 hemi in it. That was crazy, I had never heard of a 392 hemi before. But he had said that they had made an assortment of smaller hemi's for DeSoto's and Chrysler's back in the 50's and early 60's.

I was just joking, 57 Chevys only came with a 265 or 283.

The 327 Reference is from the movie My cousin Vinny.

Re: Who here is into cars? Lets start a CAR THREAD!!
I had a Mazda MX-3 GS. =P

That was my first car. Two door, V6, 5 speed. Wasn't the fastest as one might imagine, but I loved spanking riced out Civics and the like with it.

I had a rivalry with this one turbo'd Civic, ran into him like three times a week and each time we'd race and each time he'd beat me. Only Civic that did. We probably raced over two dozen times after just running into each other at a stop light or something. He was a bit of a prick though. Friggin' Civics.

For my next car I would like to get a Suburu WRX STI. I'm a bit into the import/tuner thing. I love the four wheel drive on the Suburus and the sound of the blow off valve and everything. Would love to take one on a dirt road.

My father has a 2002 Camaro SS, which is something you'd like it sounds like. LS1 engine, 6 speed. He has a bit done to it as well, exhaust, intake, and some of the widest tires I've seen on a street car.

It's pretty quick. Based on the stock figures I would guess it would run low low thirteens or high high twelves in the 1/4 but that's just a total guess. (But maybe that isn't quick by your standards if your buddies run parachutes in the quarter mile =P)

My father seldom lets me drive his SS, and only when I'm with him because he knows I used to be into street racing. Ah well. :)

I have a factory five cobra that I built. It has a 535 hp 427w in it ( the new "BOSS 427" from Ford Racing)

0-60 2.9 seconds
1/4 mile with Nitto drag radials ( street legal 315-17-35 slicks) 10.8@ 138mph

There are VERY few STREET LEGAL cars faster than this !

No turbo no bottles all throttles!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32619552



my fastest pass on motor was 11.9@ 124 MPH

on nitrous i ran an 11.8 @ 136 MPH heh. no traction.


this is in utah at 4k feet elevation and 8-9000 density altitude somedays. Correction factors can go upwards of 17-18% for dyno numbers because of the thin air :(
