" I never beat that car at all BUT most 20 year old guys back then did so an original owner of a 70 Monte back then would be around 70 years old now but the chances that 70 year old Monte owner didn't have a heavy foot back when they were in their 20's are slim. "
I am one 20 years old that did not beat my new 70 Monte.. The 68 Nova I had before the Monte got the living heck drove out of it though. I got 8800 miles on the factory tires. 325 horse/327CI with a 3:73 posi and close ratio 4 speed. I hit a tree going sideways and catching a chain link fence. Got it fixed and sold it so I could get the Monte.
