I have a chance to pick up a free Chevette. It's been years since I've driven one, but I remember them as being *very* slow.

Anyone have experience racing them? How do you think it would do as a Hornet racer? FYI our local rules require the engine/drivetrain/suspension to remain stock.

My dad raced with one with the little 1.6 and it was no power house but if he kept it up around 8000 it would keep up. Many of the cars had bigger cams and the head shaved. The main thing is the car handled so much better. He raced that car for a couple years.
