Before I did long tube headers it was a little louder then the NPP. With the LT and muffler delete it was way to loud.

Good deal, I'm planning on a little Christmas present to myself: Buttonwillow Dec 21 - 22. Buttonwillow gets almost no rain. So provided it's dry and there's no mud from a recent storm, I'm there. Hope you can join me, I've yet to run with another Camaro, believe it or not.

Just because your car is stock doesn't mean you need to be in the slow group. The 1LE will hang with pretty much anything out there if it was driven to the track. If it came on a trailer thats another story.

Try the Christmas present angle, lol. I'm in the east foothills off of Clayton Rd, one of the few places in the Bay Area that you can find a lot bigger than a postage stamp. Horses at the end of the street and grocery store 3 minutes away.

Amen to that. With practice, this car can surprise. I've yet to meet a Boss 302 or GT500 that could keep up, except a Boss 302 Laguna Seca that was trailered in and was blistering fast. But I have a few upgrades since we last met and am ready for a rematch

I went around a GT500 last Friday with relative ease. I am bone stock.

It's a shame you don't live nearby. There's a very active local Shelby Club that tracks tons of Mustangs, they keep inviting me to join them. We could bring our Camaros along with your dad and some of the other local Camaros, and have a shoot out. That would be a kick!

Man, that looks insanely fun and insane at the same time! I prefer a little sheet metal around me, LOL. My uncle is Mert Lawwill, he was the AMA Grand National Champ in 1969, so I grew up watching him race and hearing stories. My mom has a newspaper article that talks about all of the bones he broke over the years, more than Evil Knievil (which is quite a few).

Does the car give you the same rush?

LOL, I tend to put my favorite kills in my avatar too. Good memory I'm sure.
