Lol, was this a serious question?



I can’t imagine that it is.

Mustang all day long.

My ‘05 Honda S2000 was only a couple of 10ths off the GTO’s times. Mind you, the GTO is in a class that the Honda will never see IMO.

Talking about comparisons between older and new. My 96 F350 SBCC with 460 would get like 9 mpg maybe 300 hp. My son got a killer deal on a Ram TRX and with its 702 hp it does 13.
Oh btw you can buy a gasser in Cali till 2035.

My 2020 Ford Edge ST would run away a hide from the 1967 SS 350 Camaro I had in the day! Even my F150 with the same little 2.7L twin turbo would put away the Camaro. Cars of yester year do not compare to what is on the market today.

As would the GTO. 360 hp vs 295 in the SS350. GTO was a second or so quicker than the SS in the quarter.

I have to agree that today’s iron is better (more advanced) in every way than the old stuff, but nothing on the street today would compare to driving a ‘69 Z-28, or a big block RS/SS the way it was meant to be driven. Might not be the quickest or the fastest, but as I said before, all of the old muscle cars from any of the big three + AMC are in a class of their own.

Which will turn more heads— your F150 or the ‘67 SS.

It had been debagged when I bought it. It was a RS/SS with factory 8 track and 4 speed Muncie. It was fun to drive, however did not corner well. I installed traction bars to tame the mono leaf 67 rear suspension. Chevy fixed that in 68 with multi leaf springs and staggered rear shocks.

I traded this in for the Camaro. I bought the El Camano from my brother when I returned from Thailand the summer on 1967. We both wish we still had it. 283 with cam and T-10 BW close ratio. It had 3.36s when I bought and I installed 4.11s. Body was perfectly straight and also debagged. Black has to be really straight to look straight, and it did.

Got a thumbs up yesterday at the grocery store in this. Gave a thumbs up back at him for his ‘65 stingray.

The old muscle cars are a blast to drive with their loping engines, 4 barrel carb growl, exhaust smell, rattling dashboards, single point seat belts, etc...

Interesting comments from a Dodge owner on the Ford Mustang...

Dodge is dead

MOPAR is dead


Ford will sell a ton of these cars and the pony/muscle car enthusiast will be flocking to a Ford dealer unless Dodge/MOPAR course corrects.
