Some torque steer when on heavy throttle. If front tires lost traction, then the car followed the slope of the road.

I had a line-loc on rear tires. I could drag the rear tires forward and people would freak out. Car moving, rear tires locked up. Funny stuff

Yes. Couple small articles on the car. I was told at the time, white cars dont photograph well for magazines. Since the Chevelle was unique , it was used for articles

Last seen in Virginia , late summer 2014. Still runs. Looks near the same in recent years.

It was sold thru an auction. A company was being liquidated , a few collector type cars was in the auction with other equipment .

Everyone that I know has slowed up with age. Not everyone has a mag cover car. Congratulations on that fact. Smile

A guy I know here copied the paint off of that onto a 69 Camaro. I always wondered where he got the scheme since he usually tries to copy someone else.

I get a kick out of the feature headline "get 403 HP 350 ! " . Back then it was an accomplishment , now its barely a start.
