porcelainmonkey: LesserEvil: In High School (early 80s), my best friend's brother had a 1977 Monza Mirage[img2u.info image 575x400]He had replaced the engine with a 350 he had built, 4:11 posi rear end... it pushed over 500hp and he boasted he could crank the engine to 10k rpm - and the car was FAST. He would race motorcycles down at the local racing hangout in Flint (St. Johns st). Unfortunately, it had a small issue... he had gotten the car from his sister, who had busted the front air dam in a parking mishap. At about 180mph, the front end would start lifting up.My buddy would sometimes borrow the car from his brother.... always an interesting ride, particularly when you have a blow out at 160mph.Good times....the car was legendary around these parts./I miss car cruising, too.This is a Mazda Mirage. The car in the video is a Chevrolet Monza.
MFAWG: At about 180mphI call shenans. Not with 4.11's, and probably not ever.
