you never said it had KEYSTONES before, no wonder it was so fast!!!!!!!!!!!
Mild rx7 twin turbo. 0-100 in 5 seconds. She's pretty quick
still got it.
I think my 71 Firebird Formula 400 was the fastest car at least in top end that I ever owned. My Chevrolet powered 1960 Austin Healey 3000 went from a stop to "better slow down before if falls apart" speed very quickly!
had a 55 oval window vw ran 13's all day and was my daily driver
My Model A or my 64 chevy 2...................................
I know it's OT, but that Notch is sweet! I had a 87 coupe... was my first sorta performance car. Wish I had it back.
Had this back in 92 when we opened the dragstrip.
12.40's street tires and mufflers.
Sure fooled a lot guys on the street.
Do you have any more pictures of the T roadster? I like the look.
Same as me, only 70 SS Nova 402-375hp......12.20's on recap slicks
truck in avatar 9 flat @150 mph injected motor sbc. new twin turbo motor untested as of this year but dynoed at 1589 HP on a chassis dyno.
I had a Sportster that could do a hundert and fiddy tree miles an hour!
Hey why not? I just figured I'd join everyone else.
Mine was a 69 Camaro. My best time was 8:10 at 168mph in qrtr mile.
I drove her on the street from time to time.
My current car, 1990 Mustang is capable of this time, but I dont have the time to put the time into her, to get the time. LoL... SO she is for sale.
So that would be a 460 on nitro, a T body on a flopper chassis?
Would "Vandy" possibly be Dale Van Gundy?
6 Seconds passes @ 220 MPH is a clue.
1/4 mile 1930 roadster in 1965
Overall an ERA 427 sideoiler powered Cobra.
I guess the fastest car I ever owned would be a 67 Fairlane I had for a short while that was legal Super Stock at the time. 427 tunnel port,NASCAR crank and rods,2X4s, 13:1 compression you could hear idle a block away.Only ran down the strip once with it and blew the clutch with a missed shift. I was so poor it sat for a long time before I had the money to replace it. Then sold it. Racing is a rich mans game.
You sir are correct. I just finished my new FED & will build the new altered chassis in the fall.
No My name is Van & I ran the Nightmare AA/FA. I know Dale & I don't think he ever ran a Ford.
Fastest or quickest ?
57 Vette w a 427 2x4s..4:56 gears,,10s second car back a when that was very quick
1964 Jaguar E Type Coupe 3.8litre with 3 dual Webers competition cams..shaved head..
Would run 150mph top end easily..
Just a little faster than the E..and a little less quick than the Vette..but somehow felt quicker and faster..
My quickest was a '68 GTO powered by a tweaked '70 Ram Air III motor. It was a high 12 second street car that looked all stock, right down to the white walls.
As for the fastest, I once owned an '86 Buick Regal Limited that had 2.14 rear gears and a 200R4 that someone swapped in place of the non-overdrive transmission. My brother-in-law calculated that IF the wheezy 307 could pull 5000 RPM in overdrive with thee converted locked, given the gearing and the rear tire diameter, that puppy could have hit a top end of close to 300 MPH!!!! When that number came up on the calculator, we laughed hysterically for about 5 minutes! Given the car's overall condition at the time, I don't think I would have trusted it past 80!
A grey market 928.
They had pretty much a hemi headed, injected aluminum 283.
143 and pulling.
yes...great looking t-roadster
".......my third cousin, twice removed, on my mom's side, that i've never met, has this Mustang, built by Al Gore, with a really rare Hemi Chevrolet, that is SO fast it'll outrun a fuel dragster. It's sealed in an old nuclear missle bunker and needs a Dept of Interior permit to fire up, 'cause if you're not ready for it, it'll make you sterile. And when he lets out the steam powered, twin pedal clutch it causes the Earth to slow down its rotation. But it's not runnin' right now, the battery's dead......"
I read about it on the Internet. BON JOUR!!
The only way to outrun Wild Willy in a T.
Out of curiousity what was or is your wheel base? In the basement I have blueprints for a MOPAR powered Altered that I did back when I still worked on the board.
The guy was going to use a T body. He wanted it to be 102" and he said he was shooting for 200+. I don't know that he ever built it. I told him that I thought that he probably wanted a little longer wheel base than that.
Quickest- 69Z 10" slicks, 4.88s, Dixon tuned 302, 12.60s, respectable street car back then.
Fastest- 69SS Chevelle 402/T400/3.73 ran 135 along side my buddy in his '74 Z with airplane gears. After I thumped him 3 for 3 in the quarter, he insisted he could top end me, if we let 'em eat. Young & stupid we was...
1955 Ford Fairlane fitted with a 390 big block, no power brakes drums all round,no power steering.Great fun ( until you wanted to stop or came accross the slightest bend ) I miss that car life was simpler back then.
When I had my '67 E-Type roadster one night wanting to open it up I hit a speedo indicated 150+ on I-95 north of Philadelphia when suddently the center latch of the top popped open and the sudden air pressure surge and noise almost had me dump in my pants thinking the whole thing blew up. Seeing all was OK I relatched it and did it again. That car felt stable even at that speed.
Mine so far was my 1970 cobra torino with a 429 and a 4spd.
91 CHev S-10, 468 BB, 4 link, TCI Hydro, 9" rear, 4:56 gears.
Scary ride, not really fit for the street.
