Street racing in 1979, Dieters 1970 Cougar
Dieter's 1970 Cougar Eliminator (former NHRA Super Stock car) with a
modified Boss 351C motor, (very rare), street racing an all out 1969 Camaro drag car in 1979.
Old school street racing where it all began and the way it was back then.
NO juice in those days, and healthy small blocks were making about 425 HP.
American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in
both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop.
It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of
its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by
Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it
was bought to the way it looks today!!
Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in
boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well.
Restoration Talks Are Back On Again, So I Thought I'd Put This Video
Back Up On Youtube for Graffiti Lovers to see.
Car is owned by Denny Moran and Wayne Newsome. The car is driven, shown
and raced mainly by The Wolfman Baldoni & the Astros Car Club in Baltimore.
This car will still pull down a quick quarter mile times and can
often be seen banging gears around town! The car Lurches Forward
Franticly At Each Shift, Its WIld Looking To See It Run and Skate all over
the street!!!! Hooks Up Very Well On The Track!
Restoration talks are back on and plans to return the car back to its
American Graffiti stature are back on the table again. KEWL!!!!
Ive turned the comments off on this video and are by approval only.
Opinions are like assholes.

Camaro puts aggressive Acura back in its place
100% stock (right down to the paper air filter) 1993 LT1 powered Camaro automatic, out for a
cruise after a couple base Dyno pulls, and ran into an
Acura Integra with a few bolt-on mods... The Acura fellas started it,
lol... actually chatted with the Teggy fellas after, and they were really
cool guys, so don't bash 'em... The first thing they asked us was, "man,
whatcha got done to that thing?..." and they were a bit shocked when we
replied that it was just a stock Camaro LT1 version and not the
more powerful LS1 model. I don't think they had ever messed around with a
V8 engined Z28 before.
"Surely a Domestic VS Import war will start from this video... but it is
what it is, and mature and true car enthusiasts know this and appreciate
all cars for what they are. Anything can by made FAST if you have the
bucks, but don't race an American Performance car with an economy run-about
and get mad when it loses" and cry about it in the comments... A V8 powered
Camaro is supposed to
beat an economy car, unless of course you don't have a mortgage or kids, or
live in your Mothers basement, or have dropped 10 grand in it...LOL!!!
