My first was a 1973 Nova that was 50% sheet metal and 50% rust. I built a 350 engine and swapped it in. Was pretty quick back in the day.

What was your first tire burner?
I had a '79 GP, but with the 301 it just went with very little squealing of the tires. My first car that would smoke the tires would be a 1976 50TH anniversary Grand Prix with the 455 and Hurst Hatch T-Tops. Looked like this.

I got my first car in 1963. It was a 59 Chevy 283 power pack with a 4spd.
I did not know much about cars and did not realize how rare a 4spd was. Car could burn rubber ok and I had a lot of fun with it till I wrapped it around a tree!

Never had a tire burner before the Vette but the most fun car I had previously was a 1973 BMW 2002. Wish I still had that one
