Meanwhile the 350s and smaller engines made about the same power they did in the 1980s. Most of the cars other than pony cars were ridiculously heavy too and most of them had transmissions that were geared wide.

Classic muscle cars are ridiculously overrated.

Big block 69 corvettes could easily turn a four second o-60 time. But you keep on telling yourself that...
