A Chevy is unreliable at the drags---Get yourself a 79 Dodge Aspen Slant 6 grocery getter and win!
Time-trial at Gathering of the Geezers at Kil-Kare Dragway in Xenia, Ohio, August 23. There are usually lots of mis-matches like this one in time-trial pairings--a stock 110-hp Slant 6 Dodge Aspen 4-door sedan up against a hot 56 Chevy. Nobody's laughing at the Granny car now! Guess those Slant-sixes are more reliable than Bowtie powertrains.
Six in a row can go!

Just got it home after sitting in a farm field for 10 years and a driveway
on stands for 6 years. Started right up (with new battery) then drove on 16
year old gas. I bet new engines wont do that.
