No, I do not race my car. I use to race some when I was younger, then as I got older I realized all I was doing was having to put more money into my car than I really needed to. Unless you install a racing engine and parts all I found I was doing to my car was causing me to put more parts in then I normally need if I was not racing.

Not yet, but I've taken just about everything I own down the track a time or two. Just to see what they've got. I've got my '72 Comet for racing, although I would like to see the Caprice at least dip into the 9s (1/8 mile). We'll see as time/ finances march on...

I used to race my cars all the time... but I haven't owned one in a few years, and the new project isn't running yet.

My last 79 Impala Aerocoupe was named the "5.0 Liter Eater" (the one in my avatar) and it regularly snacked on Mustangs, Capri's, Camaros and Corvettes.... mostly pre-94 Corvettes.

I ran a small block Chevy 400, 882 casting heads self-ported, sealed-power cam, modified Torker intake, 780 Quadrajet with race prep backed by a brainless turbo-400 and a 4.56 posi 8.5 10 bolt. For a low buck build, that car was damn fun and a sleeper... even though I didn't really intend it to be a sleeper. I raced at the track a few times with that car as well.

My current project will be street driven, and raced at the track... but likely won't be on the road for at least 8-15 months... and its being built from the ground up with much more serious intent.
