  •  Camaro??? Camaro??? Oh, posh. (0+ / 0-)

    Give me a real muscle car.
    It has to be a Mopar.
    I like E-bodies.
    But in a pinch I'll take a Roadrunner, Coronet, Satellite, or Charger from 67-74.

      My dad once rebuilt a late 1960s Barracuda, and painted it a neon-lime green (which sounds terrible but was totally bee.u.ti.ful to see. seriously).

      But a 67-69 Camaro, with the LT1 350 engine was a raging beast on the local racetrack in PDX, at Delta Park, in the mid-1970s to early '80s.

      I had a friend owned a 67, painted pearl white, and about six other guys ran other Camaros there on the Wed Night Amateur Night quarter mile races around 1979-1982.

      Days of Thunder, indeed.

        or the 302 in the Rustang (just kidding; first car that ever dropped my jaw was a '69 gold-with-black Boss 302).

        But for sheer unadulterated glue-you-down-in-the-seat power ...
        gimme a 340 six-pack (or a 426 Hemi, but now you're talking money) ... um. I might go with modern clutches & brakes, tho. ;D
