    my dads got a clean '72 stingray, but the old fart wont race me. lol
    Depending on what motor the '72 has I might be afraid of that one,but early 80's not so much, but he initiated the race and you beat him, wasn't very smart on his part,but you can still be proud
    A kill is a kill.

    its got a 350. he(my dad) says its got 350hp. says theirs a plaque on the dash/console, and under the hood that says "350hp 350ci" or something along those lines. its been awhile since ive seen it(the car). he only gets it out of storage maybe 2x's a month if weather is nice.

    If it is indeed an L-46 (350/350) and it's completely stock he won't come close to you. Even rated at 350hp they are still mid 14-second cars.

    i didnt think he would, i just thought it would be fun. hes not completely stock, it has headers on it he said. sounds nice, nice deep rumble.

    You need to be careful of the pre-emission cars, they can do a lot without changing stock appearance.
    If in fact it is stock could be a fun race.

    I agree, they measured hp a lot differantly back then.
    I don't think it was as accurate as today. Probably more of an educated guess I would think.
