    Sorry for venting a little, but my dander gets up every time someone says a derogatory comment about tunnel rams on the street.

    I looked at some old National Dragsters and the record was in the higher 9s, not mid nines back then--- 283+.030, knife edged crank, the then new iron angle plug heads, edelbrock t-ram, sideways mounted carbs, MSD 7 ignition(before al) shifts around 11000, doug nash 5 speed

    I had a black '67 Camero that had a 283 4bl, 4spd, posi, with 131k. I got spring fever and changed the cam, headers, 2x4 tunnel ram. It was fun, till I hit a 4" round patch of ice on the on-ramp on to the freeway, and the peddle was to the metal, and I was pulling gears, then the tac pegged and bang! my brother was be hind me in his '69 Camero, and said the flames touched my rear spoiler. we never did find most of one cyl, a piston with half the rod, and another rod with wrist pin only bent 90 degree, but we knew where it left the block/pan. It only made it to 132k. So I put my 454 in.
    That was back in about '75.
