I have an 86 Monte Carlo and it was a damp day I had just left the mall and was sitting at the light to make a left turn i look to my left and see a late 90s ford mustang reving up the motor yelling that chevys are garbage.... I just throw him a quick smile and watch the soon as the light turns green i stomp the gas to the floor and the car comes off the line sideways the kid next to me in the mustang saw my jump got scared and swerved into the side of my car quickly ending the race leaving no damage to my car but just proving he knows mustangs aint got nothing on monte carlos...... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I know someone who used to "race" illegally down in KY. They had an older fox body Mustang 5.0 with a manual transmission. They told me one one particular race how the totally got DOMINTATED by a Monte Carlo with a supercharger. I just laughed, cuz at the time I heard the story, I had an 02 LS. I thought it was amusing to hear that... now, I always think of that when I see those older Mustangs, cuz I know I could probably beat them off the line with a s/c Monte!

nice kill! those 5.0's can scoot, but you need to put a little money in them before they are a threat. Be weary though, with how common they were theres a lot of parts out there for them and its not an expensive car to get fast!

that 383 would be a nice setup, would you drop it in yourself?

id be extremely carefull against a 5.0 with a stick and gears if i were you. that 305 in your car would be bringing a knife to a gun fight. id be surprised if that monte could hang with a geared 5.0 for half a block. not tryin to put anyone down, but ive done alot of street racing over the last 11yrs and im a monte man and have always battled the fox bodies and i know from first hand experience that they can slap a car around on the street. on a side note i know it was damp out but you gotta be careful launching that monte once you get a motor in it. they have a bad habit of launching crooked. anyway good luck with it.

Man, where are all those cocky Mustang guys when I'm around, lol. I'd love to find a kid that was like that just so I could shut him up.

Good luck with the 383 build. It'll be a lot more fun then a 305
