My buddy and I were heading to a car event. He was in his 67 Cougar - 289 automatic, and I was in the 76 Vette - stock. I don't think either of us would dyno over 200 hp.

Well, there we were side by side at a red light. We both knew what was about to happen. The light turns green. We both leave the line easy, then we both put the pedal to the floor.

Exhaust pipes were screaming, but our race seemed to be in slow motion. I took the time to adjust my mirror. If the cell phone had rang, I would have been comfortable answering it. These are not fast cars, and we were both cracking up at our amazing rate of acceleration. It was like watching two turtles race.

When we finally got bored and let off, I had him by a car length!!! :partyon:

I wish someone would have filmed it. It could have been the slowest high speed event in history! :laughing:

An excellent post and a great story.

C3s are fun to drive even though

we could use some NOS to move us along.

Thanks for the chuckle.:laughing::laughing::laughing:

You forgot the part of the story where you had Playboy Pet of the Month in the passenger seat next to you cheering you on to your glorius victory! :thumbsup:
