0 to 60 and the distance

Post  57custom on June 17th 2013, 11:56 pm

it takes to get there. I have never seen a chart that tells one what a car runs 0 to 60 if it does a certain 60 ft time. The reason I am asking is this coming weekend I am taking my 63 Fairlane to a car show in my home town. Some of the non car folks can understand 0 to 60 as we used to use that as a benchmark for a "hot car".  I am a lot older than most of you guys and there will also be a class reunion there and a city wide 125 year celebration. I am 73 years old and am still racing so will be trying to tell folks how much things have changed. My car has ran a best of 10.20 at 133 mph with a best of 1.43 60 foot time. It doesn't do that all the time but on a good day it will consistently run in the high 20's and low 30's.any ideas guys. Oh and we are having a 55 year class reunion too. :)This was and is a very small town we lived in, only 19 graduates in my class of 1958.

Your time slip should give you a good idea.

This calculator will give you a 0-60 time based on your 1/8 mile times. http://www.wallaceracing.com/0-60_equation.php
