No, No, No, you need big iron in the front of you to really feel alive. A good old C-7 with 540 HP and 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds, more important 0-100 in fright time!!

Then you have money left over for good used vinyl.

Couldn't agree more - no replacement for displacement!

I've got a blown (6-71 supercharger) 460 cubic inch engine in my 67 Camaro...600+ HP and sub 10 in the 1/4 mile. Always wanted a blown car since the 1st time I watched MadMax :-)

My sister-in-law has an admiral blue C7 Z06. Fun and fast car...........but who doesn't want a 918 Spyder? The owner of the attached works in my office building. I’ve been in it 2 times (as a passenger) and it is spectacular.

I ran a 66 Dodge Coronet 500 - 426 Hemi back in 66, I was Top Eliminator at NY National Speedway 17 times, Mat still has the trophies. Redid the engine with a .590 lift Isky camshaft, Hooker headers, 4:89 rear, and really lousy slicks screwed to my wheels. That car ran on the dyno put out at 580 HP in 1967 with these mods and ran to 7000 RPM. Vinnie Tarantola Torqueflight transmission. You could lock the wheels get up to 4000 and release on the last yellow - BAMMMMM!

Ran consistent high 10's mid 120's in 1966-67. 4000 pounds with me in it and really poorly designed slicks.

My stock C-7 is as fast and has air conditioning and Sirius radio!! But nothing has the low end of a big block with big gears.

That’s a very fast race car Harry ! I love Mopar’s as well my favourite is the 70-71 Dodge Challenger . Unfortunately the ship has left w/ regards to their prices specially the one’s w/ the 440’s and 426’s . I’m glad when they made the new Challenger’s it was inspired by the original Challenger . As for now what I have our old european cars ( the 89 Porsche 930 , an 88 Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet handed down to me by my Dad & my 84 BMW 635 CSi euro version )
Wish I can have one American sports car & what I really like is a 67 Corvette roadster w/ a small block and a proper manual gear box .
