Good article, except

And the current Mustang — though it’s a far cry from its twin-carbureted Super Cobra Jet 428 ancestor of 1967

I must have missed that model [IMG]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/IMG]

"And the torch was passed"
The ricers have it now.
But we will always hold on to the true MUSCLE CARS.

Yeh, I missed that model too, but the general idea in the article was there.

The 60-70's had the real Muscle. Todays ricers are like a punk kid on steroids trying to make the varsity football team.

"In a way, these compact cars are the muscle cars of today..." Nope. They may be affordable, but they lack any go-fast whatsoever.

Great article ...

except that i believe that the statement about insurance being more affordable will soon change on the ricers, i don't know about your neck of the wood but street racing and many week ends accidents will soon make the insurance company realised that the problem is even worst when you can go "That fast" sitting in a thin can.

I have a 73 Vert and a 2002 GT vert, and no ricer with their Zoom zoom will ever get me the feeling i get when i step on it and feel the g's without worrying if any of the pistons is about to just fly out of the engine or if a bump in the curve will project me up in the air to wrap the car around that telephone pole i am seeing ahead

Just my 2 cents
