I know thats of topic a little, but why build a 450 hp car if your not gonna race it some .

Funny how time changes things.
When I was a teenager up north in early 60s, the local cops used to come and watch us street race. The state boys only complained about open headers.. they said we could be heard too far. We had a safe place to race, nobody did silly s11t, we never hotrodded or sped in town period, and when we hung out, the next morning the lots did not look like a garbage truck exploded. Not even one cigarette butt on the ground. We had 383 Mopars, 348/327 Impalas, 389 Catalinas,etc..... ah the good old days.... yes they were. If only...... sigh....
