05 M6 GTO vs 79 Malibu LT1

I raced a 79 malibu with a 97corvette LT1 swap turbo 350 trans 3.90 gears and boy was I surprise. First off this was a drag race car with fully adjustable rear suspension and drag radials. First run he smokes me as I totally lose traction and he pulls on me. 2nd run is where things get interesting. We launch and I leave at 2200 rpm and of course I bog down but he spins just into 2nd gear. I finally hit the sweet spot and as I shift into second im at his bumber as he shift into drive, Im still reving second and as I hit third I am door to door with him and as Im ready to shift into fourth I pull on him and after a little more he is tacked out and i have the definate win. Even though he lost traction, I still think it was a solid race as I bogged my take off and had to play catch up. He was very impressed with the GTO and I was very impressed with his clean LTI swap.----------Danfigg
