a clip of the most famous Drag Race in the country, maybe most famous in the world
look close, what doesn't look correct here, 2 things,

A, look at the exhaust on the 32, big mistake>, it comes out the back of the car, yet earlier before the race Milner tells how he removed the Header Plugs, so the exhaust should not be coming out the back of the car.

B) the race, in an interview it was said that Milner was to win the race, but look close, yes the 55 really burned out, but the 55 caught the 32 very quickly, the 55 was a more powerful car, in the end if the 55 didn't roll it should have won as Milner said to Toad "the 55 had him".

the thing about this movie, if I was Milner>>>, once the 55 was pulled to the Salvage Yard, I would have went and pulled the 55's engine and put it in the 32,,, see, it's been said the the 32 had a 283, while the 55 had a 409 BB

hmmmm, or was it a 56 ??

Its definitely a 55. Look at the grill. Uncapping the headers lets it breath and bypass the mufflers but exhaust will still come out the back unless he has a gate in the exhaust to cut off the mufflers completely. .... could explain the rear vapor you see on the line......Fly Hard......Team Viagra

I put a big block in a 55 Chevy without destroying the firewall. I cut the firewall out of a donner 55 where the distribitor set back in the fire wall is and added it to the original 55 . I streched the cut out where the distribitor sits on the right side so when you put the big block in there was clerance for the valve cover would hit the fire wall.....the way most people did it in the 70s was to beat the firewall back with a sledge hammer to get clearance....

The firewall looks completely stock....but there is a RAT motor in it not a mouse motor.......

I understand that, but there is no exhaust coming out of the headers when Toad got out of the car, and it was louder earlier in the movie when he told the guy at the gas station he uncaped the headers

I will say this, they sure picked the right music to play as the cars pulled up to drag
