I like old v-8 Mopars myself. I have a 69 Dart with a very slightly tweaked 318 that does all right. My plan is to dump a 340 in it someday.
What the newer v8 muscle cars are doing these days is scary, they have technology like fuel injection and light weight parts and they're fast, have cold air, and get good MPG too.
The new imports can also be very fast and get rediculous MPG but most of the kids put a fart pipe on and a wing and think they are real fast becuase they are LOUD.
I hate loud and most of my car buddies are trying to get the best balance of performance without sounding like we're running open headers. There's just something about being able to hear the stereo and have a normal conversation I guess.....
Plus it doesn't get you unwanted attention every time you hit the street.
BESIDES there's just something about mass amounts of torque and being able to get the back sideways just for fun.
