    "Anything else that looks half as tough is going to blow the Super Coupe into the weeds". Really? The big bad Camaro Z28 (350/auto) shows a stock 1/4 mile time of 17.4 seconds, which is SLOWER than the SC's 17.0 yet the Camaro weighs 300 lbs less so,who's going to blow who into the weeds?o_O

    My 5,000 mile old 78 Z28 4 speed ran 15.7 stock all day long. I raced it many weekends. I put a test tube and a moroso air cleaner on it and ran 14.7. Just being honest.

    I still say a Mopar will beat a Chevy any day of the week, not that I'm biased or anything:D

    Trust me I`m a mopar man as much as anybody but it was the truth. I think the auto trans Z28 cars of that year were around the 16 second range as a friend had one.

    A friend of mine, about 30 years ago, said "If I was crawling through the desert and dying of thirst and I came upon a Chevy with a full gas tank and the keys in the ignition, I'd keep crawling". Now he was a Mopar man! lol
