Didn't do corners well, but got you in a straight line very fast and gas was about $0.30 a gallon then.
Wow, sounds like we almost followed the same path. In1988 I turned 16. I had already had my 66 Chevelle for a little over a year. After some body work and a paint job I drove her around with a 327 under the hood, while quietly building a punched out 396. The 396 ,and a few other things , were swapped out over the winter. Needless to say, I had some fun with alot of my friends I went cruising with early that spring. Its nice to see that some guys on here have some muscle car roots. If I remember correctly , gas was about 75cents a gallon then.
