This one brings back memories, the first car I drove. Back then you could get a learners permit DL at 14, on my 14 birthday Dad drove me to fill out the paperwork.
On the way out he handed me the keys and said you drive home. The clutch was stiff, the engine had a cam that gave it a rough idle. I either stalled it or spun the tires.
Dads 85 now, took his bike to Daytona for Bike Week yesterday and just got another Vette. Me, I can only buy the model.
Cox did a good job modeling this car, still looks great.

The 69 427 is a good lookin machine, the tires and suspensions of that time were not up to all that power.
But in a strait line with a rolling start you could really haul butt. The 427 was much heaver than the small blocks.
