    wow, that sucks. Actually, I guess I never really thought about how much HP one of those should have but if I had to guess I wouldn't have guessed that low. I would've been in the low hundreds, like 120HP or something.

    I bet the fuel economy is pretty chitty too for only making 49HP.

    Give that poor thing a tune up, it looks like its starving for air

    Wow, that really sucks. Wonder what an old Berlinetta, or whatever it was, Camaro would put down on the dyno. You guys remember those right, one of the ugliest camaro's ever made? Think it had a V6 or something. Made in the early-mid eighties. I bet it would put down some whopping numbers after being shitty to begin with, then with 20 years put on it.

    I remember those. They had 'em back in '79. 4 Camaro models: Base, Rally Sport, Berlinetta, Z28. Base engine was a 6, but you could get a 305 or 350 in any of them except the Z28, which was 350 only. 350 was rated at 170hp for all except the Z28 which was rated at 175hp.

    I also remember one of the car rags, can't remember which, doing a road test of the '79 Z28, TransAm, some AMC car (AMX or something like that), and 1 other car I can't remember. For the Z, their 0-60 time was 10.4 sec. and a 1/4 mi. time of 16.4 sec @ 84 mph.
