Default 350 El Camino

My friend has a 1985 El Camino with a stock 350 V8. Well, he didn't keep up with me after the first few seconds! He has a Flowmaster exaust and a K&N air filter. I thought he might actually keep up with me but nope, i was long gone!

Nice kill!!

Yea, the cars in the 80s really seemed to loose their HP and speed factors.
I mean there are still some pretty fast ones made, but only the top of the lines were fast, 5.0 Mustang, Buick GN Turbo, etc.

Again nice kill against a 350 V8.... still something to be proud of.

1985 350 is full of emissions and detuned in an ugly way, but still a nice kill.
