1970 Chevelle 496 Street Car Pump Gas 11 sec
This is my wife and her 496 Chevelle. Pump gas, flat tappet,dual plane,
3:31 gears, 3500 stall,full Exhaust,
3800 lbs, old ET Streets. She uses it to get groceries and takes it to her
Mary Kay appointments. All three of our kids LOVE riding in the back and
She averages 13 mpg on the highway with the 750 double.
Update 7/07- On 93 octane, the budget 496 made 548HP at 5900 rpm and 574TQ
with big tube (2 1/4") headers at the crank on a Superflow 902 Dyno.
UPDATE 11/08- After three years and 5k street miles, 10 Dyno pulls, and 50+ passes at
the track, Leah has run a best of 11.57 @115.48 on pump gas and M/T Drag
radials, all motor. We tried a Powershot system on it 11/1/08, and with a
1/2 throttle launch went 11.07@120mph.
Vega drag race ride along
Here is a ride along with my new Go-Pro camera mounted inside car. 76
street Vega at Grove Creek Raceway. I layed off during the wheelie and came
down hard- not used to not being able to steer or see while the wheels are
off the ground so instincts kicked in.

1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
