Hi Norm,

Thanks for sharing. Very cool combo.

What sort of 60 foot time does it run?

11.99 is plenty of fun on the street. I think some cars that run 13.60's are more than enough fun on the street, haha.

Your car is proof that it doesn't take a whole lot to have a lot of fun with what you have, it just takes the right components, in the right places.

Thanks again,
Andrew

My pleasure, and thanks.

On a good day, it 60s at 1.7, plus or minus, with the Mickeys and high 1.7s with the TA Drag Radials.

Not many will believe this, but I never use it. I can claim "bragging rights" and that's all that matters to me.

It was a major "ego stroke" when the track announcers said "it's all Olds, and he drives it all over southern, CA".

Thank you, and valley olds, for voicing your interest.

That is one awesome build. 11.99 is plenty, and on 91 octane, even better. And thanks for sharing your car's specs. Not a lot of people like sharing that kind of information about their car.
