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!

1955 Chevy Two Door Wagon, First Test Drive LS1 5.3L
I take my 55' Chevy out on its maiden voyage since the installation of a
modern GM powerplant. I installed a 5.3L LS series V8 with LS1 intake
manifold to dress it up. Behind it is a Borg Warner T10 4 Speed with Hurst
Shifter. Car still has the original rear end which needs to be addressed
because of the howling sounds you can hear in the video.
Studebaker going down track at Kilkare
Kil-Kare, located in Xenia Ohio, raceway. This was geezers day, or
something like that. Maybe I caught the geezer disease and am now too old
Studebaker. Not sure what year. I know nothing about cars.
Slant 6 Drag race
Me in the 1971 Dart 4 door (right lane), and Glen Terry in the 1964 Dodge
Dart 4 door (left lane). He beat me by quite a bit as you can see... my car
ran about .3 seconds slower, due to the wait in the staging lanes...
