Eric, I don't know where your coming from but personally, I LOVE THEM ALL !!!
A friend of mine I work with has a 69' Dart with a 440 in it and I help him all the time. A few weeks ago we were at test & tune at Jax, FL racetrack and he pulled the front wheels off the ground at least 3 feet with a 200 lb. shot of nitrous and had to get out of it because he didn't have his wheelie bars on and didn't want to run the tree over. Believe me he got everyones attention!
Bad thing was when the car came down it crunched his aluminum oil pan which he built. This car is a bear to work on. The steering linkage goes through the oil pan. So that ended our night. He also has a 70' Cuda tube chasis car which he may put this motor in and it should go low 5's in the 8th. He is trying to get a Mopar dealer to sponser him and all he wants is a Hemi from them and he'll do the rest.
I just helped him build a 30' X 48' shop with 12' walls next to his house and soon it will have a lift in it for working on race cars.
He is also licensed by IHRA to drive pro modifieds and has been over 200 mph in an OLDSMOBILE !
I will post some pictures of his Dart when we convert them to digital.
This site just happens to be for CAMARO FREAKS ! A few months ago I bought my 3rd first generation Camaro after selling the previuos two some twenty odd years ago and just seeing the car in my garage gives me goose bumps, it doesn't even have to run.
Ask yourself, why was the car choosen to be in the IROC ?
You would have to own one to understand and I've had many muscle cars from all mfgs.
And whoever said this should be moved to bench racing is right.
