Hi
I`m from England.

I have a 69 Firebird with a CVMS built 461 stroker, TH400, 10 bolt rear with 3.90 gears. It`s street legal and has run a best time of 11.42 @ 118. weighs 3480lb including me. hoping to get the times down a bit with some tuning, as I`ve only been out with it a few times.

I`ve had the car since 1996 but this car was imported to England early 1970 by an American airman.

I have had 3 different engines in it since 1996 up to having the 461 done.
I don`t use it every weekend, especially with our weather ,but I use it when I can and braket race it. that`s the reason for having the 461 done, I needed to move up a class for our ET bracket championship.

thanks
Rick
