    I raced a cobalt on the highway back when I had my Camaro...2nd gear was blown out, so I started in 3rd at 40mph. They were all excited that they were keeping up, until about 60mph...:rofl:

    That black car belonged to a member here. He did an LS1 swap, IIRC. The angle on the front skirt was intentional. He liked how it looked.
