Cal-Look Drag Day

Post by switch3sixty » Sun Apr 01, 2012 10:02 pm

Just thought i'd share with you the fact i got to take my '55 down the strip today.

It's running a mild 2332cc that ran 15's in my Ghia so i wasn't expecting much, guessed at a 20 but was hoping for an 18... Slipping clutch wasn't going to help matter either :?

I was paired up with a bug that runs 11's so it gave me a good idea of what i'd do, counting on from that, turns out i ran a 16.69 @ 75.25 MPH 8O Well happy to say the least :D
