Anybody have pictures (present or past) of their cars at the strip? Have to be more than just a handful here who enjoy/enjoyed "dragging it out" once in a while. Fun Runs ? Smell of burnt rubber mixed with race fuel?

Nice launch !

Camaro Racing Group Huh  Sorta these car's heritage. Old Reliable, Grumpy's Toys, check out his interview when he makes a pass in his 67 (you tube) COPOs? Not to mention road racing. Summit Motorsports (Norwalk) is 20 minutes from here--Thompson a little over an hour. Can't help to be bias. Come on Gary, scent of that 110 octane fuel burning through uncorked headers probably would have you pulling gears Grin Longest winter ever up here--chompin at the bit for summer! Blow a little carbon out of that 10sec Anglia.

Whats that mean? I put that ZL-1 motor in it to race. If you went running, wouldn't you put running shoes on?

Only made a couple runs, no traction at all of course, 8.24sec at 88.727 mph. On street tires, leaving black marks the whole 1/8 mile, and granny shifting my original M20. About equal to high 12's at 110 mph 1/4 mile, which is right in line with the track test from 1969 of a stock ZL-1 Camaro. Motor is bone stock ZL-1 with headers and full exhaust, 91 octane and dialed back timing. Stock suspension.

Not really pictures but here is a link to a few runs at the strip.
A few of us went to the Junior Drags National Finals and at the lunch break took the kids for runs down the track.
I dont know who had the most fun.

I have other vid if you wanna check em out.
Best run on a serious day was 12.35 at 111MPH on the 1/4 mile

Cheers

Looks like fun Wayne. While I am enjoying the weather out here in California during this winter, I have to wait until july when I go back to Indiana to drive my Camaro. When is it going to thaw out back there??
