    Thanks ! This was in about 1981. It was NOT a Z28, it was originally an RS with a 307, I think. Back in the early 1980's a 10 second car was pretty respectable. This car ran 10.60's regularly with a flat tappet solid Crane camshaft approx. .620 lift, an Edelbrock C454 intake, 1050 gas dominator, Mallory Unilite dist, factory LS-7 (454) crate that was dissembled,checked, precision balanced,reassembled. Heads were "990" LS-7, he did mild port match, swapped in Crane springs, retainers, did a little different valve job and used Harland Sharp roller rockers. Trans TH400 w/ 4000 -4200 stall. Hooker Super Comp headers, ladder bar susp, Dodge 8 3/4 rear diff, spool w/4.56 gears. It was approx. 3200 lbs with him in it.
    This car hooked me for life on drag racing, Camaro's and RS front ends. We should have never sold/let it out of our family.

    I never knew James Hunt raced a Camaro anyway thought I would post this video here. Wonder what suspension it's running seems to be stock?
