What's the fastest car you're drove, top end and 1/4 mile, other than your Z06?

Mine was a '57 egaser which did 9.4 in the 1/4. Also, a 1971 Pantera, top end 190 mph, a 1967 L88, talk about snapping your head with some g's. A Cobra 427, and a 1967 Shelby 427. The only thing about the Shelby is that its too light in the back. And, my favorite with overhead cams is the ZR1.

What's your favorite other than the Z06 of course.

'68 Corvette 427 Roadster...this car would remove the top layer of asphalt when it was pressed to leave hard. Also got a ticket for doing "60" in a "55" where I was racing two other Corvettes (a '62 Fuelie and a '69 427 roadster), kicked both their butts...the last time I looked down at the speedo on that run it was going past 150 MPH. :D :D

I remember when the '68's first came out. I was working for Richard Chevrolet in Brooklyn. I was just a kid. We had to weld a reinforcement on the rear cross member, because they kept snapping due to so much torque. They were a little nose heavy, and top end wasn't that great on them compared to the Z06's, but a lot stronger engines without all the electronics. Needed a pocket full of money for gas too.

I just sold my 94 Z28 prior to buying the Z. It was producing close to 750 ponies at the motor. I never raced it but boy did it haul some butt. hahaha

Forged bottom end, 15 psi ATI intercooled supercharged and 120 horse shot of Nitrous just in case.

Its the second one from the right. (I hope this picture is small enough or I am going to get in trouble)

69 Mustang Boss 429. In high school, one of my best friends had the Mustang and a 427 Cobra Jet Torino. Both those cars were serious out of the showroom race cars. Not as fast as the Z06, but oh my god when you're only 16 they were and still are eye openers.

Here is a pic of the fastest car I have driven. This is my dads friends 66 Chevelle racecar. 400cid small block. I made 2 passes in the 1/8th mile, track isnt 1/4 mile, ran a [email protected] That converts over to somewhere in the high 9' to low 10's. It was so awesome. I can post more pics of it if you'd like. Just lemme know.:)
