...dusted-off an old '57 Ford Thunderbird "Battlebird" (336hp):



It could probably use a bit of a tune-up, maybe a new transmission.... but turned in a very respectable 58.106 !

The 70 Vette replay is up 56.687 375 hp L 7 as well as the tune ..... plenty o room ... I'm still making errors and I have TC on so I see 56.0 easily attainable in it

57 Chevy (312 hp ) & 65 Stang ( 280 hp ) are both high 56 cars as well easily on first attempt builds ( throw togethers)
