Yes I had it to the track.    I worked at our local drag strip for 16 years.   When I did all the work I was 17.   My dad pulled a fast one on me and made the carb linkage and made it a little on the long side.   He had to answer to my mother.   I built it and if I broke it, I had to fix it so I really was scared to brake it.   I never got to know what it really ran.  It ran 15.70's  It just never seemed to rev all that quick.    20 years later I asked him and he just laughed.  I had ported and polished the oval port heads and did my own 3 angle valve job.   But never ran it to its potential.   I ended up putting a 350 in That ran 14.70 with 3.36 gears and 3,400 pounds.  I took it off the road in 1995.  We built the best we could at the time, but there just were not many parts for the cars then, dad got $20 a week allowance so he knew how to stretch a buck.    Up 1985 the car had 12 owners and  was used very hard.   The top bows were broke and it had a 68 front end on it.  It has been a big part of my life and has to be restored the I can make it the next time it breathes again.    I have had 10 Camaros since, but there is only ONE first and I still have mine.   It is an early car built in 66 and was a 327/ 2bbl, 3 speed on the tree originally, factory Bolero red, black interior.

Good story, I like the idea your dad had. I may have to make some of those "mystery mods" to my kids cars when they are ready to roll.

Cool story ds1;   Your car is very similar to mine  11A(66) LOS built,  327/2 bbl., Powerglide on the tree originally, Bolero Red with standard Black interior.  Difference is it was my sons first car, plan is it will go back to him eventually.  When I'm done playing.  LOL!
