Wow, nice! I love those first gen Camaros. Wrote a story once involving a red '69 with 2 white stripes. My favorite.

And a 1.28 short time? Buck a wow. Sounds like it's hookin' to me. What size slicks are you runnin' now? Good times. Are you sprayin or is that on motor?

Damn! If you can run a 9.54 with the tires spinning, just think what she'll do when she hooks up!

Nice run.

im running Mickey thompson ET drag slicks.
29.5x10.5-15
still car wasnt hooking up noticed wheelspin in the video and by the tire marks.
its just something ill live with i guess cuz im not about to chop up the car to put a 4 link coilover suspension on the back.
thats what it needs.
besides its street legal and Id rather take her to shows than race it.

Holy crap, you cut that short time on a 29x10.5? I'm not up on the rear suspension on those Camaros, is it leaf sprung?

Our Duster is on leaf springs in the rear and we can cut like a 1.3-low 1.4 on a 29x10.5 slick and it always amazes people it's on the stock suspension.

And thanks for the pic. Great way to start my morning.
