What Muscle Car is Right For You – Detroit Muscle S7, E1


(Tommy)>>Today on Detroit
Muscle we take a look back at all the projects we
finished this past year. (Marc)>>Taking you through
the process of each vehicle, giving you some insight on
how each build is totally different from the next. (Tommy)>>Plus we share what
obstacles you may encounter with building or restoring
your dream project. (Tommy)>>Hey y’all,
welcome to Detroit Muscle. Check out these beauties. We’ve got several rides here
in the shop that we’ve put together, and there’s a lot of
blood, sweat, and tears that’s went into them to get
them to this point. (Marc)>>Not all these cars
are created equal but they do have one common thread. They can all be
considered muscle cars. With differences like power
level, age, styling, and attitude it’s safe to say
the definition of a muscle car can be kinda broad. The correct definition of a
muscle car is a mid-size car, front engine, rear propelled,
V-8, two door, and has to be American made. (Tommy)>>So with that said
what makes the perfect muscle car to build or restore? Well you’d have to ask
yourself a few questions. Are you into the modern
styling or classic design, and what about your pocketbook? (Marc)>>Some of these things
can get pretty expensive. How about creature comforts? Do you like air conditioning,
power everything, and an overdrive or do you enjoy
things a little bit more raw? (Tommy)>>It all depends
on your taste and how bad you want it. I’m a big fan of the
timeless shape of the older cars like this Pontiac. (Marc)>>At the beginning of
the muscle car era Pontiac had a few renegades in the company
led by John DeLorean, who ignored corporate policy and
packed a massive 389 cubic inch engine into a small
lightweight model, and thus the G-T-O was born. Considered by many to be the
first muscle car it was the shot heard around Detroit. DeLorean essentially took an
old man’s car, the Tempest, and made it cool trying to
attract a new younger buyer with a taste for speed and
an appetite for danger. With big power, a three
speed Hurst shifter, sports suspension, wide wheels, hood
scoops, dual exhaust, and special badging, the G-T-O
package was an instant success and changed the
automotive industry. (Tommy)>>The base engine
was a 389 with a four barrel that made 325 horsepower. Nothing to sneeze at, but the
real muscle came from the 389 Tri-Power, which bumped up the
power output to 348 with its three two-barrel carbs, which
was two seconds quicker from zero to 60 and 1.7 seconds
quicker in the quarter mile. Available in two door coupe,
hard top, and convertible body styles the G-T-O became an
overnight performance success that would speak to the new
muscle car generation and every generation to follow. And when it comes to popular
G-T-O’s the ’66 was a standout, selling almost
100,000 in that year alone, recording the highest sales
of any true muscle car. (Marc)>>You can’t go wrong if
you pick something like this. Our ’66 Pontiac is a favorite
to many, and for good reason. Just look at the lines on this
thing an it’s wearing plenty of chrome as well, but if you
pick and older car you better be ready to put some work
into it to make it nice. (Tommy)>>When we got this old
thing a lot of the hard stuff had already been done, like
the hours and hours of body work it takes to get that
great looking reflection. Plus the engine and
trans was in it, making it a running vehicle. So the first thing we did
had to be one of the most enjoyable efforts
of restoring a car. That is installing all the
jewelry, like the grille, turn signals, headlight bezels,
bumpers, and emblems. Man all that chrome sure
makes my mouth water. (Marc)>>Yeah this car
definitely has the right look, especially with
the top laid back. With a drop top the material
for a roof won’t last forever, and you better expect to
change it down the road at some point if you’re gonna
leave it out in the elements, but I have to say with all
the added maintenance and effort it’s worth it. There’s just something
about the wind in your hair on a sunny day. But we weren’t done just yet. There was one more piece of
the puzzle to tackle before we could take this thing and
work on our tan lines, and that was the interior. (Tommy)>>Just like the
exterior, the interior has a personality all of its own. In the late ’60’s it was all
about the right lines, the right color, and
plenty of elegance. This thing was gutted
down to the bones. The only soft piece in here
was the dash, but after some pulling and tugging on the
seats, dressing up the doors, and covering the floor
it was finally back to its original glory. With that said it was
time for us to go soak up some sunshine. (Marc)>>This recipe
is pretty simple. Classic styling, shiny
everything, reliable late model horsepower,
and a drop top. It’s got all the best
aftermarket bolt on suspension to make it handle just as
well, along with disc brakes, modern wheels with a retro
look, and high performance tires to get that
power to the ground. (Tommy)>>Plus it
looks dang good. (Marc)>>But is it
the best formula? Don’t make a
decision just yet. (Tommy)>>Because we have
three more formulas that might strike your fancy. (Marc)>>Every shop needs
a reciprocating saw. They saw everything. They’re really handy for a
bunch of different jobs but you can’t get them
into tight spots. Well not anymore with Matco’s
16 volt cordless reciprocating saw kit with its compact size,
easy to change blade, and two batteries you’ll probably
leave that corded one in your box. The kit even comes with its
own battery charger, not to mention these batteries
are interchangeable with other Matco tools. So you can swap them out on
your other cordless tools. We journey into the realm of
late model muscle with the big three and how they’re upping
the ante on horsepower and performance. (Tommy)>>We also walk through
what upgrades we did on our 2016 Mustang G-T to
make it a track monster. (Tommy)>>Hey y’all welcome
back to Detroit Muscle. We’re taking a look back at
some of the cars that we’ve built and how their different
recipes make the perfect muscle car, and if this
Pontiac convertible doesn’t trip your trigger maybe
late model muscle will do the trick. (Marc)>>Right now we’re in
the midst of the modern muscle car era, and all of
the big three have put their hats in the ring. Dodge with its Challenger,
Chevrolet’s Camaro, and of course Ford’s iconic Mustang. (Tommy)>>And the
competition is stiff. [ engine revving ] (Tommy)>>Ford was
first to launch its new era of muscle in 2007 with
the 500 horsepower G-T 500. While the Challenger and
Camaro weren’t even in production, but fast forward
to today and all three have offered up 600 plus horsepower
versions of their pony cars. Ford was first with its
662 horse 2013 G-T 500. This not only became the most
powerful and fastest Mustang ever produced but it
set the bar for Chevy and Mopar to achieve. (Marc)>>Chevy delivered 650
horsepower with an iteration of its Z-L-1 but Dodge
pulled out all the stops in 2015 with its Hellcat. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>Uncontested
the folks at Mopar kept upping the ante by adding
the 808 horsepower Demon and 797 horsepower Redeye. (Tommy)>>One nice thing about
modern muscle is you don’t have to fool with all that
restoration, and that allows you to devote all your
time, effort, and budget into modifications. A perfect example of
that would be this 2016 Mustang G-T. (Marc)>>From the factory this
thing came with well over 400 horsepower, modern safety
and conveniences, four wheel independent suspension,
and that galloping pony name plate. Right out of the box this
thing is a contender but stock isn’t how you serve
one of these things up. (Tommy)>>It just needed
a sprinkle of some added performance, starting
with a supercharger. (Marc)>>We wanted to bolt on
a ton of power with one simple mod, and Edelbrock had just
what we needed with its all-new 26-50 E-force
supercharger kit for the S-550 Mustangs. Nick from Edelbrock came in
and gave us a hand with the install, and we followed the
step by step instructions to show just how easy it
was to bolt on over 300 additional horsepower. [ engine starting ] (Tommy)>>That will
get the air in but it’s got to get out. So we went with the Borla
S-type cat back system. This is yet another easy to
install modification, which is made from high quality
stainless steel, is good looking, and most
importantly sounds sweet. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>With that
blower sitting on top of there helping this
thing product over 700 horsepower it only makes
sense to add some brakes with a bigger bite. (Tommy)>>As well as some
suspension to make this thing handle like it should. So the next thing we did was
add a Ford Performance track handling pack, which includes
upgraded shocks, struts, springs, and sway bars. Then it was time for
those big biters. (Marc)>>So we swapped the
rotors out for a two piece slotted design, added some
larger upgraded calipers for more clamping force, and a
more aggressive pad so that when we pull back on
the reins this pony is gonna whoa for sure. (Tommy)>>So now with more
power under the hood, bigger brakes, and cool sounding
exhaust you know we can’t leave this thing stock
looking, and with it being a Mustang you don’t have to look
very far to find some parts to change its personality. So we added a bigger spoiler
on the deck lid, a roof spoiler, an upgraded front
fascia and side skirts. Then we installed a simple
graphics package to give it just the right
amount of character. That’s what’s great
about late model muscle. Parts are readily available,
it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort, and it’s easy to
personalize to your own taste. (Marc)>>Another added benefit
to a vehicle like this is the reliability and practicality. You can drive this thing back
and forth to work every day. Yet still take it to the
track to blow off some steam. (Tommy)>>I love the
straightaways though. [ engine revving ] (Marc>>You ever
heard the old saying of bad day at the track is
still way better than a good day at the office? You have now. Having a vehicle that can do
both things is what I would call the sweet spot. You can drive it to the track,
beat on it with the a/c on, and it pays you back with good
handling, hard acceleration, all the braking you could ask
for while singing that sweet sound that puts a
smile on your face. (Tommy)>>So with that said
if you’re not set on classic styling and you don’t need
that chrome to get you home, you may want to check
yourself out one of these. (Marc)>>You can’t argue
with how well rounded these things are. I mean they check
off all the boxes. Safety, reliability, fuel
economy, and good performance, all wrapped up in
one neat package with sleek modern styling. (Tommy)>>But that’s
a matter of taste. We take a look at ’80’s muscle
cars and how we took a pony car from sad and slow to the
next level, making it a dual purpose machine with an
appetite for the track. So are ’80’s cars on the
rebound for cool projects? (Tommy)>>In the ’80’s
there was a lot going on. Michael Jackson was doing
his fancy dance, big hair was defying the laws of gravity,
and your sister was testing the limitations
of a phone cord. (Marc)>>But as for the
automotive world there wasn’t much performance. The emission standards put
into place by the government from previous years put a
huge damper on horsepower. So the big three were trying
all they could to grab the attention of the buyer with
unique styling and packages. G-M had the Trans Am and
IROC-Z, Mopar had the Shelby Daytona, and Ford with G-T and
the Cobra, none of which made much more than 200 horses. (Tommy)>>Cars of this era
are kinda in an odd place. They’re not really sought
after like the late ’60’s and early ’70’s muscle cars for
their brute strength and iconic styling, nor are they
as well built as the modern stuff but that’s not
necessarily a bad thing. (Marc)>>Right, if you don’t
mind getting your hands dirty you can pick yourself up a
project car on the cheap. Mix in a dose of performance
and you’ve got one great ride. This killer Cobra is a
great example of that. It’s a cheap car with a
long list of the right parts and some hard work. (Tommy)>>When we picked up
this jewel you could call it a marvel of Ford engineering. With all the decals it could
haul around, the interior was sporty but smelly, and up under
the hood was 255 cubic inches of fire breathing fury. (Marc)>>This is our 1981
Ford Mustang Cobra that we call Sydewinder. It falls into the fox body
category that Ford produced from 1978 to 1993. With the uni-body design,
McPherson strut front suspension, triangulated four
link rear, and only weighing around 3,000 pounds, these
cars are quick and nimble. Ford even used a slightly
modified version of the setup all the way up through 2004. (Tommy)>>That’s the way our
car would have came from the factory but it’s nowhere
near that right now. We wanted it to have
an aggressive and edgy feel to it. This thing is a lot closer to
a track car but it has just enough manners to
drive on the street. (Marc)>>The aftermarket
support for fox body Mustangs is through the roof. There are literally hundreds
of manufacturers that can accommodate you and your dream
no matter how wild and crazy. (Tommy)>>You can upgrade to
some serious suspension parts, like a lighter K-member,
stronger A-arms, and fancy upgraded shocks and struts
just to name a few, and an added benefit is most simply
bolt right in with little to no modifications
to your vehicle. Now let’s talk about
propulsion, the engine. If it’s considered a
combustion power plant there’s one probably at one time been
dropped in the hole of one of these things, and it doesn’t
matter if it’s a Chevy or Ford big block, a late model G-M
L-S, or even an import 2-J-Z. (Marc)>>We went with
the common choice. The small block Ford but it
makes a lot of power, 613 horsepower on pump gas. It’s a 427 cubic inch Windsor
that started life as a 351. With all the right internal
components and topped with a 950 c-f-m carburetor this push
rod can haul this fox body from zero to hang
on tight in no time. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>We backed it with a
T-K-O 600 manual gearbox and bolted in a crate rear axle
complete with disc brakes. Then there’s the appearance. You could say this fox body
looks a little rough around the edges but that’s thanks in
part to this patina paint job we gave it, and that’s what’s
great about these cars. If you can dream it
you can achieve it. (Tommy)>>Since we started
with a solid car and a decent paint job we decided not to
replace or strip any of the body down on our Mustang. Instead we scuffed it up and
gave it an unconventional paint job, but we think
it turned out pretty cool. We even added a weathered
cobra on the hood to complete the look, and with those
fender flares, some big fancy wheels and tires, and a bit
of aero we have completely transformed the look
of this thing, but we didn’t stop there. We got all up in them guts,
and yet again the aftermarket world pulled through. (Marc)>>We went with a bolt
in roll bar, a bunch of sheet metal panels like that rear
seat delete, sporty seats, and racy gauge and switch panels,
and the look was complete. But like we said, this car
was built for the track. So that’s exactly
what we did with it. If you built something like
this yourself there’s no better way to reap
the benefits of all your hard work. [ engine revving ] (Tommy)>>This car is at
home on the open track. More power than you need,
braking for days, handles like it’s on rails, and a cockpit
that makes you feel like you’re Vaughn Gitten Junior. [ engine revving ] (Tommy)>>That’s just one way
these things can go together. We could have built an
ultimate street car, or even a wheel standing drag car,
but we’re pretty happy with ole Sydewinder. So is a fox body Mustang the
perfect muscle car or are they still maturing? (Marc)>>Well it just so
happens that a lot of folks that grew up with these cars
are now getting to the age where they can afford to build
their dream car, and for many it’s something
out of the ’80’s. When we come back we drive
into the world of resto mods, and the endless possibilities
of blending classic styling with modern performance
and comfort. (Tommy)>>We’re on the debate
of what makes the perfect recipe for a muscle car. Is it classic and classy, late
model muscle, or heck, even something out of the ’80’s? (Marc)>>No matter what your
taste there’s certain cars that just take the cake. The late ’60’s and early ’70’s
was the golden era of muscle, and anybody would be proud to
have one in their driveway. (Tommy)>>If you’re a G-M
guy a 1970 Chevelle S-S L-S 6 would probably be on the top
of your list being powered by a 450 horse 454 engine and
backed with a gear grabbing four speed, how could
you not be glad to say yeah, she’s mine? [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>Or maybe you
want to be the boss with a 1969 Mustang with 429
cubes sitting under the hood. You would grab plenty of
attention with its sinister styling and threaten the
life of your tires with more than enough power. (Tommy)>>Speaking of power
let’s talk about the word, no matter your age, you know
it meant business, Hemi! This 1970 Cuda had what it
took to rule the streets. Pop the hood and there was
motor from fender to fender. No wonder they call
this thing the elephant. All wrapped in sleek lines
with perfect proportions. Seeing this thing in your
rearview might make you want to tuck your tail and hide. Yeah those classics are
amazing and you know I love that Cuda, but what if you
took classic Mopar styling and meshed it with
modern conveniences? (Marc)>>Yeah that’s the
hot ticket right now. There’s a lot of different
terms used to describe these cars but we like to call
it resto mods, like our 1969 Dodge Charger. (Tommy)>>No matter what you
work on when it comes to these old cars there’s one thing
you better plan on, a lot of hard work. Sheet metal replacement,
sanding, sanding, and more sanding, and then finally you
get to spray on the color of your choice, and as far as
we’re concerned you can’t go wrong with black. (Marc)>>Now this is the point
where it went from restoration to modification, and getting
one of those modern muscle engines shoehorned into one of
these things is no easy task, but picking the right
power plant can set the mood for the build. And it just so happens
that Mopar had the perfect dancer for us. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>In 2015 Dodge
set the world on fire with the Hellcat,
making 707 horsepower. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>But they couldn’t
leave well enough alone. So they followed that up with
the Demon, which is basically a street legal drag car
making 808 horsepower. And with skinnies and
sticky tires this thing will pull a wheelie. [ engine revving ] (Tommy)>>Then they
took things one step further and offered that
supercharged Hemi as a crate engine, and this is
what it looks like. Don’t look too bad
in there does it? Really looks like it belongs. (Marc)>>That transformation
took this car from traditional and temperamental to
reliable and rowdy. [ engine revving ] (Marc)>>Not only
does this thing have all that power, but it also
has some much needed upgrades like rack and pinion power
steering, modern suspension, four wheel disc brakes,
and ice cold a/c. (Tommy)>>And when it’s all
said and done you can stretch this thing out on the
interstate with no worries. [ engine revving ] (Tommy)>>Slow down and
cruise on the back roads, or take center stage and
look dang good doing it. [ engine revving ] [ tires squealing ] (Marc)>>So what’s the recipe
for the perfect muscle car? Well it’s hard to say and
there’s really no wrong answer. It just depends on your taste,
budget, skill set, and the purpose of the car. (Tommy)>>Maybe your hot
rod needs to double as a daily driver. So late model muscle
could be your answer. (Marc)>>Or you just want
an all-out track animal and you’re gonna
build it yourself. Then an ’80’s car
might fit the bill. (Tommy)>>Then again maybe
you cannot compromise when it comes to the authentic
look of a piece of American engineering. (Marc)>>No matter what
there’s no wrong answer because it’s
ultimately up to you. That’s because muscle
cars are just plain cool.

  1. CLICK BAIT !!! MOSTLY BODY AND SUSPENSION . NO MUSCLE WITHOUT ENGINE BUILD . THIS VIDEO SHOULD BE CALLED BODY AND SUSPENSION .

  2. The trip is that IROC and Cobra aren't really that cheap anymore. Unless they are a rusted out bucket. Like the late 80s-90s Chevy 1500. The 80s cars are starting to climb in price since everything before it is starting to get extremely expensive. Even for rusty examples.

  3. Had a beautiful red, early model 1990 Challenger SRT-8 but my EX totalled it. This Pony is a beast: Ordered this in March 2018 at Lebanon Ford of Lebanon, Ohio, you can walk in the door with $40,000 cash(or less), and drive out with a brand-new Roush supercharged Mustang GT that makes more power than a Hellcat. Haven't owned a Mustang since 1982. Anyway, the almost new 2016 Mustang is a powerhouse bargain! It only had 127 miles on it.

    The math checks out: A base model, no-options Mustang GT carries a $32,395 MSRP(I got it for less), and a Roush Phase 2 supercharger kit and matching exhaust asks $7549.99. Install item two on item one, ignore what you'd normally charge for labor, and you've got a pony with 747 horses at an incredibly low price. So, yes: For less than $40,000, you can get a brand-new 2016 Mustang capable of stomping a Hellcat. That's nearly $9,000 cheaper than a Mustang Shelby GT350, and more than $22,000 less than the most affordable Challenger SRT Hellcat, both of which are frequently victims of egregious dealership price mark-ups. I'll use the money I save to keep a plentiful stock of rear tires. I highly recommend going to Lebanon Ford of Lebanon, Ohio to buy one these.
    https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/a15924615/2018-ford-mustang-gt-roush-lebanon-ford/ P.S. It does need extra front and rear suspension boost-about $1200 more…

  4. What does having two doors have too do with it . if most muscle cars have four doors ??. Muscle cars are big a nd heavy. It's like saying , If it's not a Ferrari . then it's not a sports car or whatever. Wtf

  5. My muscle car is my 850hp 454 powered 1971 Caprice Coupe, the means of a muscle car, and the driveability of the ideal 70's cruiser!

  6. My American muscle is gonna be my 88 F250 4.9L T18 3.55 LS 4×4 783K miles gonna be rebuilt completely and twin turboed or Supercharged, but in my eyes sure it's not a v8 but you can't make a motor as good as this one or the Chevy or Dodge slant6

  7. If this English sounds peculiar to you, well, it does to me, too, and I am an American. They are speaking a "Hill-billy" dialect. Hill-billies are rustic folk of the Southeastern
    mountains. They are a people generally considered uneducated and very crude. These two, however, are actors laying the hill-billy accent on hard. They are doing this because
    the producers of this show think this accent better panders and appeals to a young men's audience of stupid automotive dolts. The cars on these shows are often wonderfully engineered and restored by skill intelligent technicians and engineers. The rube accents and highly affected hill-billy speech patterns are a producer's maniacal invention.

  8. My 1968 impala 2 door fastback coupe with a 496 big block, th400, 3.36 rear gears is the ideal musle car for me. Plenty of interior space, huge trunk, and big power underneath the hood!πŸ’ͺ

  9. I love all the old cars and trucks. From a 29 chevy pick up to the 80's and 90's Camaro they are all beautiful to me. However, my dream is to have a 69 Camaro rs/ss or a 1960's chevelle.

  10. 78 formula firebird 400 4spd with white leather interior and movers on the back window red with black stripes but had ol Cragar SS rims. That was the car I had before

  11. Lol no muscle car from the 60s is right for anyone, Lol overhyped junk from a era long gone, the after market parts suppliers only sell overpriced junk for them, you have to slap 800 hp in one to impress anyone anymore and a stock 389 gto will get whipped by a 4 door nissan with a mom driving and 3 kids in the back seat, Lol do yourself a favor and buy a new car that will outperform grampas super bee any day of the week and get 25 miles a gallon doing it,

  12. Well those muscle cars are out of reach for most people. Not complaining. It's just how things go. How many people can put out the cash for the upgrades like on the mustang ? Especially the initial cost of the car.

  13. Project: Street Regal. Idea to float by y'all. Right behind the cats, add some exhaust dumps and a super quiet exhaust system. Make everyone think, "Yeah, just another Buick." Until you open the dumps. And you rattle windows in the next county. Did it to my old '79 Regal. Called that car 'Cheaper That A Wife'. Thing would pass everything on the road but a gas station.

  14. you mean A WHOLE LOT OF FREAKING MONEY!

    AND NOT TO MENTION…CONNECTIONS LIKE YOU GUYS HAVE TO GET A SHELL CHEAP

  15. According to your definition of muscle car the challenger does not qualify because they are built in Canada not the USA.

  16. Good Present Ditroit Muscle : Power Nation*🌠 – Ditroit Muscle S7 E1 MV : Bigolive Show By – Power Nation*🌠 ….. Cheerio.πŸŒ β˜πŸš—β˜πŸŒ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŒ πŸŒŸπŸŒ .

  17. Their "definition" of a musclecar eliminates pony cars, but includes slow base V8's. Damn, lookie at all them pony cars in this vid. 🀨

  18. That Charger would look great if you wouldn't have put those DAMN PIMP wheels on it!! You should have gone with 16" wheels all the way around! That's the problem with you young punks! You like those fuckin' wagon wheels! They SUCK!

  19. 70 Firebird 400 convertible would be my dream car but would put a Hurst 3.8 NASCAR motor in it as a sleeper, with a T5 Borg and Warner trans. 4.11 posi. rear end.

  20. that 69 charger was butchered with having that modern engine in it. the super charger doesn't fut the sound don't hear the noisy cam the car lacks that amazing sound of raw power when you smash the gas

  21. Can't watch power block anymore.i have 2nd tier cable but can't find the shows. They should go back to regular cable.

  22. If it was me & I decided to get my self an older or at least 1990 & older car well I’d have to go with the dodge muscle car like that charger you guys blew away!! 22 years ago I used to own a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger & I absolutely miss that beautiful car that I had back in the day!! & today trying to find one is near impossible at a fair price!! One thing about dodge fans they are definitely true & strong to the dodge vehicles!! Now when I see a ford or Chevy fan I just don’t see the full connection with there models

  23. Why should the definition of muscle car be restricted to just American cars? Wouldn't a car with the same formula as a muscle car be just as "muscular" regardless of country of origin?

  24. 3:06 Pontiac sells almost 100K units in '66 and everybody says, "Yea!" Chevy sells well over 100K Corvairs that same year and people still call that car a failure!? Four-wheel Independent suspension and weighing in at a svelte 2600 lbs. vs the GTO's 3400+ lbs. And Corvairs were the first Yenko cars that did very well on the SCCA track circuit. Add the ability to be turned into a mid-mount V8 track star and you've got a car that can keep up with or lose most other much more expensive cars, like Porsche. Corvair also had the boxer years ahead of Porsche, even though GM did much of their R&D w/ Porsche/VW. Interesting Porsche/VW never caught any flak about their sewing-arm rear suspension, but it was so bad on the Corvair that they were "unsafe at any speed." A bunch of BS, cause it was just Nader looking for the deep pockets and had nothing to do with the reality of the car's performance and stability. Oh, and the perfect recipe for my favorite car is the one with my name on the title. lol

  25. 14:25 and someone already fit a 7.3 Godzilla under the hood of a fox body. It's actually not much different in size to a 351 Windsor.
