    Tom, Brewer's 12.20 run in 2000 is listed 'Cars not in Shootout' which thought meant broke... maybe in 2000 the Nova was removed from competition.

    I will call Dan tomorrow

    I was simply re-asking Brians question?
    If this is a list of the top 20 Pure Stockers, then it shouldn't have a SA,or Slow SA, or Factory Appearing car, or whatever you want to call it on this list.
    That Nova had a highly detailed feature done on it where he "came clean" about all the tricks done to the car, hence, making it not Pure Stock:Smarty:
    So, if your going to leave that car on the list, it's kind of a slap to the face of whoever is sitting at spot #21 with an actual Pure Stocker, isn't it?:Do No:
    Nothing against the Brewer's, or the Nova, it just doesn't belong on this list with legit Pure Stock cars. IMO:bglasses:

    Too many snow days = no Spring Break in the hills!

    I wondered the same thing, but we're on "Spring Break", remember...?!

    the Brewers removed their car from the event in 2000 due to sprit of the rules issues :Do No:

    so I will redo the list and replace the Nova with a Corvette :Brow:

    There is less than one second difference on the list.
    The Buick is all alone:
    only GM A body.
    only 3.42 (3 series gear).
    only 455 GM engine.

    this list looks like it will be shaken up in September...

    Rick Mahony ran in the 11's
    Ken Riebel ran 12.20 (although my son was disappointed about the lack of sidepipes)
    I heard Bob K dipped into the 11.70s

    I would have to agree, September will be interesting.
    I wonder what Julies Vette will run with 13.5 to 1 compression?
  13. JLerum

    JLerum 1970 LS-6 Chevelle

    I think Ken ran the best of a 12.08 Saturday without the pipes.

    John Brown On permanant vacation !!

    .34 for just changing exhaust is quite an improvment. :TU:

    Trial and error is what makes these cars run faster. The show car only crowd won't try it and that is why the don't believe the times these cars run. Just because these cars didn't run this fast in the old magazine tests, doesn't mean they aren't legal when they do it now.

    :Do No: As Paul said in the 60' thread. Always interesting to see cal. HP figures. I'm within 2 hp of factory rating. Guess I need another degree of timing to get up to advertised rating!:bla:

    The ole girl is probably getting tired with the way you've been beating on her the last few years.
    Throw a set of rings at her, and she might find that extra 2 hp.:Brow:

    You could always tell the car it's going to be stolen again if it doesn't go faster !!! [​IMG]
