    NO BULL; how fast was a B-body 383 HP car compared to a GTO or a Chevelle SS 396 car?

    there were some 63/64 galaxies around with the 427 side oilers in them. no 383 was catching one of them, no how. they ran with the big boy's. that's the motor they banned at daytona before the hemi's took over. the hemi's couldn't catch them

    IF you had a chance, would you take a 1968 OR 1969 L-88 ?

    humph! good question. i have one of each now, 69 hemi coronet and a 70 chevelle 572 dart motor. if i had to give one up it would be the chevelle down the road first. they are both fun to drive but at the end of the day i will feel a lot better driving around in a hemi car. around here there...

    this car actually has a little humor in it's history on how it got here from the pomona swap meet. i found and bought a 1969 426 hemi engine in new brunswick canada and it sat on my shop floor for about 4 years waiting for the right donor car, believe me they are a rare commodity up here, lol. a...

    8 3/4 or Dana

    for that much h-p i would go with the 9" myself. i put a dana 60 in the hemi coronet and a 9" in the chevelle with much bigger power, both new from moser. definitely not cheap but the last one's i will have to buy. - i know i am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but why are looking for those...
