    WRX vs. El Camino w/ 350 (?)

    From a roll on (w/ AC on initially, but I turned it off around the corner...hehe) at about 25mph we both punched it, I was in just shifting to 2nd unfortunately...his exhaust sounded pretty mean we were even up to about 70 and I was pulling away slightly maybe 1/2 a car at that point and we both shut down because I'm not big on true street racing.

    I'm pretty sure he had a modified 350 in there...sounded exactly like it. Pretty cool car - had some big meats in the back, too.

    Anyway, I'm pretty happy that I was able to keep up from a roll and maybe pull a little assuming he didn't just let off.

    the thing about those old muscle cars is that you never know what they're actually packing! Too bad you didnt get to talk to him or anything.

    remember, a stock 33 year old v8 with no mufflers, or flowmaster 2 chambers on a 2.5" exhaust sounds like a pretty mean machine.

    Nice job keeping up though - at least with my car, lots of people beat me off the line... but the old beast gets a little better as the speedo goes up.
