    Just went to the track for the first time and had the hardest time hooking up.
    I ran a 14.1, 14.6, 14.3 trying different launch techniques. My 60' times were horrible at 2.27, 2.6, and 2.5. If I had a good set of tires I would have been in the 13's easy, and likely mid 13's if all went well.

    So my expectations were a little off. I figured I'd hit the mid-high 13's with my current setup, but didn't realize how much a good tire can make a difference.

      Thanks for posting the website. I had a 1973 Dodge Dart Sport with a 340 back in my younger days. I restored it, my youngest sister drove it while I was out of town and totaled it. Someday...... I will have another Mopar Muscle car .

        These guys are somewhat reasonable on the prices compared to other muscle car dealers. The reality is this, muscle cars have become a richman's hobby and playground. I went to the summer auctions in Arizona thinking I would score on a '69 Super Bee........I thought wrong. The one I tried to bid on ended up selling for $98,000, Yes it had a HEMI and fully restored to factory specs even down to the chalk markings from the Lynch Road Assembly Plant. And that was back in 2000. I seen a HEMI Cuda' sell for 1 million last year. It was unrestored, just kept in a safe place since the date of purchased which was in 1971. I thought BMW, Mercedes, Ashton Martin and all the other $100,000+ cars were loved by the wealthy. I can remember listening to my dad and his Vietnam brother talk about the Yenko Camaro and how it didnt sell due to the price, if only they were alive to see the prices now. Then you have the guys getting rich off clones, It makes me sick to see a ad in the paper and call about the car and hear " yes its the real deal come see for yourself". I show up with a magnet and they dont even want to let me inspect the car, the reason is due to the fact 90% of the car is bondo. What real muscle car frame has a drop of bondo in them?

        I guess i will keep saving until I get to the point I can start a bid at $100,000 to compete with the big boys.

          1968 Camaro RS/SS

          At the age of 19 I have a 1968 Camaro RS/SS
          I also have a 1996 Z28 (I know its not a classic)

          I have owned:

          1969 Firebird
          1984 Trans Am (only 1,500 made)
          1972 Firebird
          1974 Firebird Formula
          1987 Camaro (Blah...)

          I think that might be all of them.

          I know what some of you are thinking and no they are not my dads cars, he has his Novas and GTOs to keep him occupied
          and no I am not some spoiled kid.

          I have worked full time summers and after school every single day since I was 14 years old (I like money) to buy my cars, and have loved each of them in there own way, but not so much the 87 v6 camaro.

            Over the years I have had the following.
            1969 Camero RS/SS - 350/350 H.P. 4 speed with 12 bolt 355 Posi all factory

            1968 Camero RS - 327/300 H.P. 4 speed Posi rear don't remember the gears

            1974 Nova Hatchback with a 68 Vet. 427/648 H.P. (on a dyno) turbo 400 trany 12 bolt 373 gears. Sold the car, twisted the body, kept the motor.

            1969 Camero put the 427 in it and a worked turbo 350 along with a 12 bolt and 355 gears.

            Gave the 1969 Camero to my son for his 17th. birthday with a 350/350 H.P. that I built for it.

            Sold the 427 and got a 1964 Chevelle Malibu Super Sport convertable with a 327/375 H.P. L-79 motor and Muncie 4 speed with a 10 bolt Posi and 355 gears. This car was all original from the factory. Sold it 3 years ago.

            1985 Chevy El Camino Super Sport, all original down to the paint with 115,000 miles on it, I drive it every day.

            I was known by the motorheads in the neighborhood as the OLD MAN WITH THE FAST RIDE.
            Thats all

              Actually, the company's name is spelled "Cragar," and they made more than just those 5 spoked chrome wheels that everyone remembers them for.

                Wow, that is one of the best birthday presents I have ever heard of.

                Alittle off the subject, but my dad is a U.S. Tire & Exhaust distrubitor and I was told that Crager was bought out buy American Racing.

                  Traded it up for a Red 89 Formula Firebird 350 Tune port.

                    I still see Cragars listed in Jegs and Summit, as well as American Racing. I have no idea if they're the same company now, but American Racing rims seem to cost a little less.

                    Gimme a 65 Goat or a early 70's chevelle.

                          years ago, had a 1969 Roadrunner, matching No#'s, factory 4 speed with pistol grip, 383. went to Oregon to get it, brought it back only to have it stolen two month later, recovered totally stripped..

                          spent a bunch of money to rebuild and almost had it finished then, sold it....


                          looking for another... *sigh*

                              I like the older cars as well. Just cannot afford them. I have instead my diecast collection that I have muscle cars in. '70 Chevelle and '58 Plymouth Belvedere for a couple. (yes, Christine's colors. I don't see the need to buy the one of "her" recently released since in my mind I already had her in my collection. Now if I can ever find her on sale at Toys R Us... I did find a '01 Crown Vic 1/18 NYPD there for $11 last year. I'd rather find an OSHP 1/18 CV but any police car for my collection is fine by me. Have a few 1/24 size also.
