    Thanks for rubbin that in ,old boy.
    I was runnin E/T street focking 20 years ago and 12.5 was pretty gawddang fast back then for a car I could drive to school if I wanted to!

    That car has never run that fast though... however it WILL run [email protected] ALL DAY long. How mush money you got in your pocket? I'm not bragging it was mostly talkin shit though!:buttkick:

    Lol ahhh the good old days! :love62:
    I had a lot of fun but wouldn't go back for nothin.

    Needs more gear I reckon. I have to shift into third about 150 feet off the top. :( it kills my quarter..I debate a few other things.. and keep the car around cuz I intend to play with it some more, later.:licklips:

    *12.5 @ 100 remains the goal

    Hey, I said "sadly" lol. I've never even run mine at the track. Just up against some lightly modified LS 4th gens back when those cars were new. They were hot shit in my area. I surprised a lot of people back then because my IROC just looked like your average RS with IROC wheels and a hillbilly hood scoop. It felt even quicker after I ditched the auto trans.

    But these days, I could easily get smoked by a Nissan or VW.

    ;)


    Wait. You has a hillbilly hood scoop?!
    For reals?

    Pix?

    After I started getting outrun I had to figure another way to win because the dope sellin money from highschool was gone - so I started bracket racing. :shrug:

    I kind if hate to change the car very much because it is so extremely predictable but the current combo has been maxxed out for a long time and i'm an N/A kind of guy.

    Yet 12.5 is still a ways off..:(

    It was just an old fiberglass cowl hood that I bought cheap with a big crack in it. I fixed the crack and primed it gray. It stuck out like a sore thumb on a black car with rowdy exhaust. Attracted all sorts of attention.

    But I've had a stock IROC hood on it for the last decade or more.

    This is the hood for my 86 stepside project. It has been painted to match, with black stripes down the middle

    Well, thanks to @Rusty Nail I discovered my old Photobucket account. So much stuff I have forgotten about. And saw how damn nice my rusty ass Burb used to be.

    It was one of those old American Sports Car Design cowl hoods that had a very wedge shaped scoop.
