At 16 it was a 1970 Monte Carlo,,,,,,,had Keystone Klassic Rims with Mickey Thompson 50's (BIAS PLY) 350 CI 2 barrel, Hooker Headers, Rabbit air shocks (a must), and a Bowtie on the hood that read,,,,,,,The Monte Carlo Kid!!!!!!
At the young age of 11 it was a Corvair!!! My Dad had a salvage yard with over 900 vehicles and all of 60 acre to learn how NOT ta drive!!!! I found out when the left side motor mount in a 67 Ford breaks, ya can dump yer brother (driving a 67 Dodge) goin inta turn 3,,,,,,,,yep,,,,,,,the throttle sticks goin inta a left hander!!!!
For all the powerheads out there,,,,here's a formula I came up with for CI:
Bore x Bore x Stroke x 6.2832 (pie x 2)
350 CI CHevy
4.001 x 4.001 x 3.48 x 6.2832 = 350.235 CI
CI x RPM x .0001903 = ponies!!!!
