Ok lets try this. 60' 330' 660' 1000' (the fake finish line) 1254' (the start of the speed trap for the 1/4 mile) and 1320' the finish line.

I think the speed trap starts 66 feet before the line either 1000', or 1320', I should know, but was to busy doing other things when I raced to worry about the lights.

Blue if Rich wants to give it up, you take it, but I really haven't had time to work on this one.

Hi Brian
That's correct 225 slant six
Chrysler made the 225 slant six aluminum block
then offered it only as an option

Isn't that wild!

Buick had their Aluminum V8 (along with the Olds version) Rambler even had an aluminum six! Then it all stopped and there was nothing until the Vega.
