I use to race it quite a bit untill they closed the drag strip that was about an hour and a half away I have to drive three now, my fasted time was 13.00 at 107mph. (poor 100ft times low traction and bad driver)
As for the bonneville it basicly stock other than a trailer hitch and and air bag helper springs.Its running a factory 375hp. 428.
Its a lot of fun flying by people running 80 mph in a big car towing another car or a boat.
I was going to try the Ram-Air 4 grind in my 455, but ended up getting a good deal on an aftermarket cam. My 400 runs the 335 hp 400 factory grind.
I blocked the exhaust crossovers too, but ended up drilling a couple of small holes in the 400's block plate to let the choke work.
With that mph you should probably be running mid-12's if you can hook up without breaking anything!
Way back in the day I liked the idea of towing with another car. My plan was to tow the 455 T/A with the 400 clone car. I ran both at several big races, slowing the 400 car down to 14-flat so I could run in a different class.

There was a killer 79 firebird (black) at SEMA. If I figure how to download the pictures from my phone, I'll post them on the site.
That's cool, too bad you sold it! Mine has 146k on it (bought it with 95k). I always told myself that once I could afford one of these it would get driven! I missed the Firebird at SEMA, but I was only there for part of one day.
Thanks for posting the photo!
