77 2-dr Caprice pure stocker (350-2bbl)--don't laugh! It beat plenty of Camaros (dwarfed 'em too)! Won several races on 1/4 mile track with it--finished second in points.

I agree fully with dilbert. I now have a 77 Caprice 2 Door. We bought it to run Road Hogg with. The track shut down, and now we are running Street Stock, and it is not doing too bad. I will take it over any Monte Carlo or Camaro. Only thing is it weighs 3760 lbs.

Now back to the topic, my first race car was a 73 Toyota Celica. Raced in the pony class.
