    In my youth, it was all American Muscle...but today, with computerization, the tuner gives muscle a run for it's money.

    So, which side of the great debate do you come down on?

    Nothing beats the visceral feeling of an American muscle car big block.

    Being pinned back against your seat; tires smoking; and the vibration from the motor coursing through your body; as the headers exhaust assaults your ears and the deep low sound numbs your mind.

    Next best thing to sex!!

    Oh yea!! :cool:

    Third option.

    I go for ass haulers like the Sunbeam Tiger...Euro designs with Detroit V8 power.

    Kind of a reverse on the P-51 with the Merlin, I guess.

    I had a Chevy Nova SS with a 396 4 on the floor when i was in high school.

    Ported and bored out to about a 427.

    That baby hauled ass

    I do have an older RX7 that we're fixing up it's just as fast as my old chevy and the acceleration is better but it doesn't compare to the feel and sound of my old chevy

    i used to rebuilt alot of roadsters and sports cars. Triumph Spitfire, X's, Spiders. Man it was great when you get a rebuilt motor installed for $250.00. Then I would sell them to Okla.Univ. students.
