hey bonne94sse what king of black outs or covers do you have over your headlights?
You like 'em? Check out page 9 thru the link my sig. I bought 2 pairs of clear headlight covers and am painting them like the picture. They'll be my car color. Those are Photoshopped right now. As soon as the weather gets better I'll be doing them. I did "eyebrows" too and will post pics this week.

Could be tight. You never know. Results will probably depend on whether you are racing against a high-mileage daily driver or not. The vettes were'nt all that powerful then, but they are still a good deal lighter than the bonnevilles.

If someone put a decent cam or rebuilt the carb on the vette, you'd be in for a race. If its something somebody kept in a garage all these years and did nothing to, it might be different. I've learned that with a carburated engine, stomping on the gas isn't always the best thing for a launch. Most of those old v8'* need to be finessed, at least in stock trim.

It would be a fair race, is the Vette an automatic?

Yes the Vette is an automatic too. I've driven it and it takes a while for it to accelerate nicely. I will definitely kill it off the line and it wouldn't be able to gain enough ground I'm trying to get my mom or dad to loosen up and race me. It should be fun!

I'm confident, especially after I get my intake (soon) and my Magnaflow exhaust (Wednesday) that I can take my parents' 81 Vette, but I'm trying to convince her to race me in it. She is totally avoiding it! I don't think she wants to get beat by a Bonne and get embarrased. Otherwise why wouldn't she race me and prove she'* faster? I'll try again with my dad, and hope to race him soon. Or I'll find another 79-82 driving around and see what happens
