This is the most recent chapter of the famous Hemi vs. Buick shoootout, with the added twist that the winner of Hemi vs Buick squares off against an L88 Corvette. The shootout was hosted by Hot Rod Magazine, and was run at Cordova IL in 2006. The cars are required to be compliant with stock appearing rules as defined by the F.A.S.T. Musclecar racing series (www.fastracesorg), with the exception of racing slicks being allowed.
1969 Mac's Chevrolet NRHA Divsion 5 Super Stock Camaro 427
I recently started the full restoration of this NHRA Super Stock racer originally from Cornhusker's Raceway (home track) in Nebraska. This car was prepped, converted, and raced starting in 1969 and campaigned in the Super Stock class through 1974 in NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Division 5, the "West Central Division".
One of the original part-owners of this car was Al McNamara, the proprietor of a Nebraska Chevrolet Franchised dealer. This dealer was Mac's Chevrolet / Oldsmobile in Crete, Nebraska. The Camaro was raced new off the show-room floor in 1969.
From the show-room floor the Camaro was shipped to Del Star where he laid on the "one of a kind" paint scheme in his Mason City, Iowa Auto Body Center.
The next stop for this Camaro was over to Dick Harrell's St Louis, Missouri Performance Center where he prepared all of the Camaro's 427 power plants (including an all Aluminum ZL-1 427), the Camaro's chassis, and the Camaro's multiple transmissions. "MR CHEVROLET'S" shop converted the Camaro from it's original Muncie four speed to a Harrell Performance Center prepared turbo 400 transmission. Dick's shop also supplied a specially prepared "Clutch Driven" turbo 400 transmission for use later in the 1969 season.
The "Legendary" NHRA Division 5 driver, Charles (Charlie) Jacobs, also a part-owner of this Camaro, campaigned as the driver of this Camaro with great success winning his division's "points" class in Super Stock and his division's "Chevrolet Manufacturers" class.
Al and Charles sold the car sometime in 1970 to the next set of owners. These owners continued to campaign the Camaro, which afforded them division wins in 1971 and 1973.
Stay tuned for addition video documenting the Camaro's restoration progress.

Fastest Street Car 8 second Impala 1/4 mile Drag Racing
Sit down, hang on, and get ready for a 154 mph pass in Pat Spangenberg's legendary 1966 Impala Super Sport. Facts: it weighs 4,000 lbs, it has stock suspension, and runs a 3" Exhaust system with turbo mufflers so it is so quite that you could drive the thing to church. Does this sound like a car that runs in the 8's? Oh ya' and it is street driven !!!
The wing, Very loud fast drag car.
My favourite clip of an awesome machine called 'Wild willie' a 23 ford t-bucket.
This thing spits out such an awesome sound, i will never forget. Apparently its running a 2000hp top fuel dragster motor from c.1965. Thanks to Vegaimpala for the info on this :)
Runs a 7.4 @ 195mph on the 1/4.
