So after work yesterday(and a LOT of joking about how 'slow' my boss's cars are) we took my 65 Skylark 2bbl with a ST300 and 2.71's out against his 48 Pontiac with 70 Grand Prix running gear. His car has a 400 4bbl with a turbo 400 and 2.73's. Our car weigh about the same. I didn't expect any chance against his car but thought what the heck, I'll give it what I've got. So we started from a roll at about 15-20(first gear for me, bottom of second for him) after we got out of town and stayed in it until shortly after I shifted into second, maybe 90. I definitely lost, but was very proud of how my car ran. He got the hit slightly, but I stayed with him through most of first. He started to slightly walk away from me as I hit the top of first. When I hit second I started to reel him back in, but he let off just after he hit third. When we got back to town I asked him how far into the throttle he was, he said he didn't even hit the secondaries :eek2:; I felt like one whipped pony:laugh:. I thought he just touched the secondaries, but just barely had them cracked o No:, but I'll take his word for it. All in all I was happy giving up 100 cubic inches and some gear. I really did win overall though. The win was getting him to go out and actually play around and seeing him have some fun :TU:. P.S. This was kind of a warm up. He has a fiberglass bodied Model T truck with a slightly worked over engine from a 65 GTO and a Muncie M-22 and 3.55 gears. That car should run low 10's when hooking and healthy. I want to race it(or at least try to:laugh when I get my car close to done.
