how 'bout an 89 Trans Am GTA? I do believe it was wickedly fast

my stock time 13.83 at 101.5 (which btw, is better than I could muster in my 98 cobra)

and one more thing, I think alot of those cars suffered from poor tires. Circa late 60's engine technology was far ahead of tire/suspension tech. Just look at some of those trap speeds and the resulting ET. Massive spin from all that tourqe.

When i was 14 & 15 years old (1973 & 1974), my parents next door neighbor had a 69 SS 396 Camaro that ran high 11's & low 12's in a bracket called "Top Street Eliminator"
all i remember was a holley double pumper, edlebrock high rise, and straight headers!!
that was a WHOLE LOT OF FUN for a 14 to 15 year old kid
think that's 1 of the reasons i became a car enthusiast!!

Remember I said completely stock,including tires.I have had several of these cars and them some;RamAir Formula 455 (2) Drag Pk Torino Cobra (2),one a 4 speed and the other an auto.The 4 speed w/slicks at what was then East Texas drag strip just North of Houston ran 13.20`s. this was with a 4:30 gear w/ a solid lifter cam and a 429 SJC.My point is our cars in my opinion are just as good if not better all things considered.Put a gear and slicks only your Bullitt and see what it does!However, I do admit that I have gotten early Muscle cars into the low 12`s with alot of mods;engine,suspension,stall,gears,slicks,etc.Any car can be made fast and you can make them a better balanced car w/work.I am just bragging that we have about the best OVERALL balanced combination in a sports,performance,musclecar,whatever you want to call it.I`m proud of it and I think that we all are.

Anybody that has seen an article with 0-60 or 1/4 mile times in a magazine like Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords? How about a Forum with timeslips?
