88 Nova, supposedly 63 HP but it was way too fast for that, the manual was nice too!

I might have a chance to chassis dyno my car this year, here at school. The automotive college has a 1000Hp dyno for power, and a 700HP dyno for emissions testing. SWEEEEET.

Yes. As with almost every other car company out there.
