Comment on Driven: 1970 Buick Electra 225 Custom Limited Sport Coupe by Senator Dennyhttps://news.classiccars.com/driven-1970-buick-electra-225-custom-limited-sport-coupe/#comment-4934 Sat, 25 Feb 2017 05:56:54 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=93171#comment-4934 I had a 70 2 door. It was about 800 lbs. lighter than a 71 and the only year for the high compression 455 ci. We got it to run consistent low 14’s by simly flipping the air cleaner cover over. I raced many “muscle cars” and they had me to about 35-45 mph. After that all they saw was my “sled” sliding by. When the auto trans was shifted manually it would do 75 in first gear, 115 in second and I never found a road long enough for third. I really miss that car, it handled quite well for it’s footprint, (certainly no corvette) and was the ultimate sleeper. The only muscle cars that could beat it had to have big blocks

The car that I drove as a dealer demo was equiped with a C-6 auto and 3.91gears. These cars only came out as a 19701/2 Ford Falcon (Not a Torino).The car I drove was a Cheapie Sleeper DSO with sound deletion pkg. which included Black rubber floor mats and radio delete.Bare bones and FAST!!!

But a 1970 Electra or Riviera would outrun most, if not all muscles cars on the highway once it gets up to 100 mph, even a GXS because of it low 3:64 rear ratio,……

Same goes with the rear spoiler and the front chin spoiler. For the most comprehensive camaro info site,
check out Camaro Research Group. I have sent many people to this site, almost everyone is surprised at how much they did’nt know about their first gen camaro.

Comment on Restoration starts on last of the repairable sinkhole Corvettes by Jerry D.

It is kind of like grandpa’s hammer that he use his whole life. I am sure most have heard that story, as well.

Great post. I love the theatrical history behind hip-hop, which unfortunately can’t be found in today’s artists. I hope the days of deep rich lyrics aren’t gone, just taking a break.
