That is one awesome car. I live close to the seller I should go take a look at the car. (I probably won't though because the seller probably would not want some 16-year-old kid taking up his time gawking at his car.)

Can I have a '70 Dodge Challenger T/A, please? You can call me Kowalski, then, if you want...


Vanishing point-esque greetings from Munich!

But I think I like the late 50's Vettes even better for style. Of course, for speed they're all kinda lame in stock condition until the C5 and Z.

that car has been butchered.I bet some nit-wit thought swapping the big-block for the smaller motor was a good idea.

I think my 2002 Z06 is the greatest Vette ever.I love it.It is the fatest stock car I have ever owned and is way better than the BMW M3 that I dumped to buy it.

As as that comment about American cars.I'm sure that Europe and Asia make great cars.Until something breaks.Bend over then.My wife owned a 1999 M430 that was a rolling POS and cost us big money to own and maintain.The 2002 M3 was another junk that just started self-destructing.I'll stick with American vehicles from now on.

The Zo6 is a very very nice car however I would still prefer my dad's 70 Cuda over it just for nastalga purposes. The sound of a Cudas motor can not be equaled IMO. Please remember this is just my opinion

I love the sound of any american V-8.Over the years I have been around them so much I have been able to learn to distinguish them by sound.Some of the Chrylser V-8s sound great.I especially love the sound of a big Hemi and a large displacement,high compression Big Block Chevy with a big cam.This is gonna make me wanna go out to the garage to fire up my 1965 Malibu.

The ultimate Vette is a late 50's or early 60's modified with early ninety's engine and suspension. That gives you the best of both. Great styling of the pre-Stingray Vette and great handling and power, not to mention dependability of the C4 Vette.
