Default IMO Old school will always beat new

Couple of weeks ago we got to run our Day 2 chevelle at Roadkill Nights in Pontiac MI. We had a private test and tune at Lapeer Dragway a few days prior to get ready for the event. The Chevelle has a couple of minor issues at the T&T but nothing a few new V belts couldn't fix (going to switch to a serpentine set up soon) Highlight of the event besides seeing my sons reaction to us racing (he truly made me feel like a superhero) was beating up on a new Hellcat twice! Will post more pics once I get them downsized some to load. If you haven't been to Roadkill Nights I HIGHLY recommend you go!

AGREED. Something about the old bodies and style that just make them stand out in the crowd.

I actual have "OLDESKOL" as the plate on my 1967 BB 427 Nova SS.

Well done -

I'd be interested in some data, too, if you are at liberty to share.
