I haven’t raced Clementine at the drag strip since I was 18.  Back then she wasn’t running the stock FI engine like now. I had a 1641 with a progressive Webber 009 distributor headers mild street cam.  I would run low 13s or high 12s if I done my speed shifting right lol. I don’t remember what the speed was since it was nearly 35 years ago. Would have no clue what she would run now since I drive like a grandfather. Come to think of it I am a grandfather lol.
