Default Pretty much how it was

It was tuff to beat that 396, my 66 GTO 389 just didn’t make the power that 396 made, some of those baby’s made like 425 hp. It’s kind of a corny commercial but definitely fits the times.

My friend had 68 Camaro SS 396, 4 speed he wreck it. After that I convince him to buy 1970 Ram IV Judge. This is funny I went with him to order it, he didnít know what to get, he sat there as I ordered it. Black, SD suspension Turbo 400 trans, 3:90 gear...no air no power steering. Think it was $3900.00 back then. On the way home he said you think black going to look ok...LOL yes Greg your going to love it.

He wasnít a very good driver thatís why he wrecked the Camaro Racing someone so when ever we race someone I drove. I told him needed automatic. When I got done with the Judge it ran 12.70ís closed exhaust.

Our buddy bought brand new SS 396 Chevelle, each Time we race with me driving Iíd beat that Chevelle by 1/2 car...LOL the Chevelle was a 4 speed.
I put a 4:33 gear, recurved disb, jetted Qíjet a little more cam.
