Saturday, at Gimli Raceway Park, or whatever they call it, a 10.96 at 123. Way more left in it because the new car accelerates so much faster that I ran out of rpm's and legged it the last 200 to 300 feet. Probably a 10.6 in her. Best 60 foot, at 1.59, and more left in that. Now, 9's for 2010.

Oh and by the way, I got huggs and handshakes from strangers. It was a kind of a defining moment. Very neat at age 54.

NICE!! what kind of gear are you running in it?
4:56 gears with 26 tall ET streets and a nice Edge 9" torque converter. It was ok in the 71 Cutlas, but the Camaro accelerates so much quicker, I guess due to the lighter weight and way better traction, so naturally I ran out of rpm at the end. And I mean it was an eternity at 7500 on the rev limiter. Acutally backfired on my 10.98 pass.
