My old Fox's best 60' was a 1.14 seconds. Figured it out once and it was like 55 or 56 mph if memory serves. Used to tell people 0-60 was about 1.25, LOL.

Holy light speed. 7 or 8 second car I assume.

I feel old:

High school: Dude, that car runs 12's. That's insane!!!
In my 20's: Dude, that car runs 10's. That's radical!!!
In my 30'2: Dude, that car runs 9's. That's amazing!!!
In my (late) 40's: Dude, that car runs 7's. Crap I'm old

It *seems* so easy these days. You young whippersnappers don't realize how hard it was for us to run our Fox's into the 12's. 11's and you risked snapping your block in half. Exaggerating, of course. But still... A 7 second "street" car isn't that unbelievable these days.

Maybe its because I'm a bottle and a half of wine into the evening, but shouldn't a ZL1 that runs 10.80 trap close to 127-130. PDR off as it never got over 116?

This 100%... I poured money into my 5.0s back in the late 80s early 90s... all that I got back was 12s... 11s and finally touched 10s.......... Then in 2006 I bought a stock Corvette (C6Z) that I ran my best ET in my life10.92 100% stock on drag radials..... today coyote 5.0s are a power adder away from 9s and just a bit more work to go even quicker....
