Did this video help you?

Plymouth roadrunner: Sweet!

Mr1BADMFR: Sweet!

brettt777: Sweet ride man. I have always been a Chevelle guy myself. I always had '68s but my next one will definitely be a '70. I gotta ask a stupid question. Yours have a very nice lumpy idle. Is that a stock cam and exhaust or is it aftermarket? I know Chevy put some pretty large cams in their big blocks back in the day...

skipdafer: dude you gotta post a video of you taking it up to like a 100 or something, i love this chevelle!!

RanarScreenPrinting: nice chevelle

Road Test TV: Thanks for looking. Original L78 car with factory 4.10 posi rear.

Road Test TV: @brettt777 I agree. Hard to beat the sound of an old school big block with a solid lifter cam banging like this one does. Good luck with the hunt for a muscle car. I hope you find exactly what you want. Road Test TV

ericou812: whats granny shifting?

SuperCansir: I love how you actually passed 60 mph. Beautiful car man.

Road Test TV: Thanks for the comment and for watching. I agree. Fathom Blue was a great Chevelle color.

shadownglass: Very nice L78 Chevelle. I was there when the L78 hit the streets. An L78 is nothing to take lightly. In the Vette, same engine is rated at 425 HP. The L78 could put a 390 HP 427 on the trailer. I bet on a good day, you could pull an LS6 through the first three gears, and might even take him through fourth. Thanks for the video, it sounds mean as h - - -!

thegrimreaper916: how much will it cost in total to get this ride to INDIA? :D

bluesharp59: Nice ! Liked !

michelle grone: FREAKIN BAD-ASS MAN LOVE IT!!!! SOUNDS SWEET AS HELL MAN!!!

Curtis Lee: omg this car is amazing! i love that vent that opens with the rev

heroineworshipper: 1:25 sounded like metal grinding

nightmoves420: @mehlville97 LOL, your a joke. Take your rice burner and move over seas and run it there. If your not going to run American you belong there.

TheMARTINFCC: it calls car , not that crapty plastic cars , freak prius

akraus5: how much does a car like this normally go for

carsbyjeff: Awesome Chevelle! Sweet Rumble, Sounds like a Rock Crusher 4 speed? M22...

TheCowGoesMoo o: Well he did hit 80 in this vid..

253JSCRILLA: Dammm .....no comment lol

peque9807: That is so bad ass! ! I like it when it revvs n the cowl Hood flaps open...how cool is that

Michael Dunn: Let me tell all you old baby boomer farts something. My Honda civic could blow the doors off this american made boat anchor. I have been feeding the mice in my motor meth. and if thats not enough I just installed a new Maxwell House double the caffein muffler. Plus i mounted an old wing off a DC-3 on the back off it. So by the time you start this chevelle ill be hitting golf balls on the moon......

Robert Ruis: It must be a real blessing to own one of the BEST muscle cars ever to be produced! Good for you man! Enjoy!

Road Test TV: @carsbyjeff Believe it or not, its an M21. But it does sound like an M22 in video. Thanks. Road Test TV

Mike Rotchburns: those are the tires screeching.........

mrceebees14: This came with an L78 and Posi rear?

Road Test TV: @Cliner98 Getting motored on by a sleeper Chevelle when your driving an 11.60 Nova, must have been a surprise. Thanks for sharing.

XboobtubeX: @mehlville97 you snot nose kids know nothing about back in the day muscle cars. Do you really believe a muffler and wing amount to anything when it comes to horsepower? If you do, then you have a lot of growing up to do.

Road Test TV: @brettt777 Thanks. It has the stock L78 solid-lifter cam with hooker headers running into 2 1/2 inch exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. Thanks for watching. Road Test TV

elkyt81: Damn right.

dacodoco: I love the sound of a 4 speed whining sounds like a super

Lee Tamayo: @brettt777 man i agree!..i had a 69 442 w-32 with a 455 in it and it had a stick...i miss that car so much i had to sell it cause i moved to an apartment and i had no where to park it..i didn't want to park it in the street so i had no choice but to sell it...the 442 i had was so damn fast and all it had was a original alluminum intake manifold a 750 carb and ported heads....shifting the gears on it was so fun...i just love hearing the sound of a bigblock going down the street shifting gears..

MinniKF: @brettt777 сколько стоит стандартный такой автомобиль без турбо?! I WANT HIM!!!

jonzdad1: Jesus, that thing is a beast.

14Dollar: Great to see an original dash. What a beautiful color for that car.

brettt777: I don't care how big of turbo or how much nitrous they put in a tuner, or how fast it goes, they could never have that big block sound and never be as cool as this. I had a friend years ago that had a '70 Olds 442 W-30 with the 455, M-22, 4.10's and red on black. It sounded and ran much like this one. Way cool. I told the wife last night that we need to have a muscle car in the family again. She agreed. I have an '06 Ram with a 5.7L Hemi. It's fun but it doesn't look and sound like this one...

leifericson923: Honestly, I'd take an old muscle car like this over a Ferrari any day.

oilcan821: of all the cars i had in the 70's, i had a '70 ss396, plain jane! idiot lights instead of rally gauges, bench seats instead of buckets, no stripes, 14" rally wheels, f41 suspension, m-21 with 3.36 12 bolt posi. (i later changed to 3.73's) it ran 13.40's at 108 mph down the 1/4 mile, and i know this is hard to believe, it would get 18 mpg cruising at a steady 55-60 mph! you could almost watch the gas gauge go down if you beat on it! one of the best bowties with a tonawenda tornado under the hood!

Road Test TV: @skipdafer Thanks. Going to take it to the track soon.

416honda: In his late 20's/early 30's, my Dad owned a 1970 L89. I saw a couple of old Polaroids - it was red with black stripes and tan interior. My Mom threatened to divorce him if he didn't get rid of it. She ended up divorcing him anyway.

Road Test TV: @Boggle122333 Thanks. Chevy got it right with the Cowl Induction hood on the Chevelle. Great to watch it open when your driving and bury the throttle. Thanks for watching.

Benguitar1991: Was that twenty to eighty in about four seconds? One day I shall have one... One day...

The Druid: a few tips for you as you asked for in your flashlight video...if you don't mind? 1. SLOW DOWN. You are shooting "quantity" over quality. 2. Your draw. Nock the arrow but don't draw the arrow until your bow arm is already at full extension. So point the arrow tip at the target first and THEN draw the bow. This helps prevent the string from twisting too much as you draw. 3. Form. You are tilting your head to the right, sort of trying to "meet" the bow string. Stand up straight, keep your head upright and bring the bow sight to YOU. Take a long, slow breath in and begin an equally slow exhale. I can't really tell if your anchor point is the same but if you notice it yourself, your index finger should ALWAYS touch the EXACT same point on your face EVERY SINGLE TIME you draw. Personally, I have my bow set to where my index finger touches the corner of my mouth. That is my anchor point. make sure yours is the same spot every time [if you notice it isn't]. 4. Release. Exhale about half of your breath and hold your breath for about 1/2 a second when your sight is on the target. At that time, let the string roll off your fingertips by its own force. It looks to me like you are trying to force the release by "pulling" your fingers away. That will throw your shot EVERY time. 5. Follow-through. After you have release your arrow, you are not holding the bow in the "shoot" position long enough. I can see you are dropping your bow hand way too early...tilting or tipping the bow down right after the shot. A rule of thumb is, your bow should be in the same position for about one second after the you hear the arrow hit the target. The bow has recoil and if you don't hold it in place long enough, that recoil + poor follow-through = really poor accuracy. **special notes: 1. I can't see where the bow string is on your fingers but it should be about halfway between your fingertip and the first knuckle. It should NOT be inside the knuckle joint because it will 'bind'...making the string twist and "jump" as you release. 2. You are using a mixture of different arrows. Use only the same arrows of the same weights with tips of the same weight. So all of that ^ in a short paragraph is: Nock your arrow, stand up straight and point the tip at the target. Take a slow deep breath as you draw your bow. Align the sight and slowly exhale about half that breath. Hold your breath for half a second and let the string roll off the tips of your fingers. Hold the bow there until 1 second after you heard it hit the target. Hope this helps you :)

Não sei se conseguiria te responder apenas nesse comentário... Mas procure saber mais sobre o curso. As matérias, por exemplo. E claro, depois de formada se você gostaria de seguir alguma profissão que o curso oferece. Caso queira me procure no skoob pra conversamos mais a respeito! Beijos!
