Ok? Non streetable drag strip cars that are equalled by modern cars you mean?

What about when people do work on a modern V8 or a turbo engine? Same result.

That can be said for any car.

I've seen Supras and a Mitsubishi Colts at less than 10 seconds.

What an insulting post.

Except what I said is true. Almost every 1960s muscle car car was a 13-14 second 1/4 mile car stock AT THE HIGH END of these cars. Then there were rare stratospheric cars that don't even equal their modern equivalents and were just as expensive in dollars in their day! SUPERCARS you are talking about!

A Corvette is not a muscle car, it is a sports car and the version you bring up is a supercar or halo car. Huge difference there. Muscle cars will be slower. Still, you are wrong.

Anyways..... thanks for allowing yourself to be proven wrong.

Vastly inferior to today's technology.
Keep in mind I said muscle car which is something a corvette is not.

Heres some more sites you can read so you can learn more about cars:
http://www.motortrend.com/features/1...m/viewall.html - list of the fastest muscle cars of the era and how fast they actually are not using the blinders of nostalgia.
Of course the only respectable cars compared to today mentioned from the era is the ZL1, the two only ever built car, and a Shelby Cobra a minimalist purpose built race car.
http://www.corvette-web-central.com/...etopspeed.html


Bring up another halo car to try and prove me wrong only for reality to remain the same. Shall I bring up modern halo cars to shame this Corvette?

Advertised as around 430hp, once again that is pre-sae HP as well. If measured by today's standards it would probably be as much as 100 less. edit: In fact in that wiki article on the C3:
net rating of only 376 hp on the ZL1.

Oh and production numbers on this ZL1? The one that compares to what numbers you bring up?
automotive experts believed only two were built
A regular 427 IS SLOWER. As shown above.

As I said, overrated. The one exception to otherwise SLOW muscle cars is the ZL1 of which only 2 are built ever aside from $10-$20k of engine work that would produce the same results on modern cars.

Keep in mind all these cars on top of being slower than modern performance cars also handled like ****, but here in hickville USA we only live 1/4 mile at a time... right?

Care to bring up actual muscle cars now? Oh wait, i'm right so you can't contradict what i'm saying, thats why you brought up corvettes! You realize that this corvette ZL1 was the fastest car of it's era right? It's still slower than high end relatively affordable modern cars! How much faster is the fastest car of OUR era? You bring up strawmen I will as well.

Nostalgia doesn't equal superiority it is only nostalgia. But you keep on telling yourself that... I suggest you at least use google before insulting people again. Next you'll talk to me about how Harley Davidsons are the fastest bikes.

So what is it like reading a post that is insulting, like yours, but also ****s on everything you said while using actual facts? Try responding to someone not using insulting internet memetalk next time.




Since i'm bored at work with nothing to do, to further **** on slow, terrible handling, no brakes, overrated nostalgia 1960s muscle cars.

It's 50 year old technology, of course it won't keep up with today's products. Hell, look how far cars have come in the past 20 years.. Your argument is ridiculous. People buy them for the styling, the exclusivity, and because it reminds them of their childhood. Just like you will likely want your precious Subaru in 30 years when dealing with your midlife crisis, despite it being slow and poor handling by whatever is out at that point.

And, a basic resto-mod, redoing simply the rear suspension, with modern tires, will generally be in the 13-14 range.

You said classic muscle wasn't impressive. I flipped it on you and pointed out the majority of under 10 second cars are classic muscle. I'm sorry you can't accept you were proven wrong.

By classic, he means stock or near stock. Yeah, anyone can dump money into whatever ****ing car they want and make it go under 10 seconds. Why them? Cuz they were cheap and plentiful.

After being forced into a double date, my gf's bestfriends new boyfriend got into the back of my car:

Him: Why do you have so many antenna's back here (talking about my bc damper adjuster extenders).
Me: They arent antennas, they adjust the damper settings on my suspension.
Him: So they make your car faster?
Me: Ummmm, sure
Him: Can I turn them?
Me: Sure turn them all the way to the right. (He adjusts them to full stiff, then I get on it on a bumpy road)
Him: WOW they really work!

In a realistic point of view instead of having it get awkward you could have told him about locking the back hubs for the awd to engage then ask him to be a sport and manually do that, once out of the car proceed to speed away laughing like you won, knowing you we're gunna shag both babes.

Today, clerk see's me pull up to store. I go inside.

"Is that a widebody kit?"

"No, it's just a stock '11 WRX"

"A what? Who makes that?"

"It's a Subaru"

"Oh. Looks really nice. I have an '88 Camaro"

"Nice. Take care man."

Nice guy, late 20's. It amazes me how many people still don't know about these AWD turbo beasts.

No, classic doesn't mean stock or near stock. And I'm not arguing if older cars are cheap or not. (although late 60s muscle cars aren't exactly the cheapest cars to acquire) You are eluding the fact I am only calling him out for saying the engines are ****. Yes, from factory, they're slow. Put some work into them and those huge V8s make stupid power.

You can't even approach the argument properly.

What I'm saying is you're both right you ****ing moron. When HE was talking about classic, HE meant stock or near stock, that is afterall what classic means; old and original. Are they cheap now? **** no, but guess what, they weren't always this expensive. I know the engines, when properly modified, will perform very well; but what engine won't? You do the right mods to a WRX or STi and you'll gain a **** load of power too.

So, shut the **** up since you can't understand both sides of an argument.
