    '97 Acura Integra GS... So light and underpowered, the thing would actually make it to 60 a half-second faster when the gas tank was empty as opposed to full. HA!

    Nothing says American Muscle like an Olds 6.6L 403 with a giant bird on the hood.

    Hmmm...the classic age of the muscle car pretty much ended in the early '70's with the smogout and emasculation of all of the domestic V8's.

    edit:Not to be mean, but that 6.6 liter from 1978 made 180hp...in the OLD way of measuring. Meaning even less by modern hp standards.

    That's my point. Your list does not contain any "Muscle" cars other then by name.

    Even the Vette in the early 80's was a joke. Possibly not at the time but in the grand scheme of things it's laughable.

    No, it was kind of a joke at the time. The automotive world was greatly relieved in '84 when the new, "more powerful" C4 Vette came out.

    Don't forget to consider the competition, or lack thereof, in the late 70s-early 80's. The end of an era, before the gas crisis and a "Flock of Seagulls". Also, the 80 Corvette was the last of the 70's body style before it went to shat.

    You're right about that.
    And I'm not meaning to pick on your cars; I liked the Fire Chicken TA's back in the day, too.

    IMHO post 1970 there isnt anything I'd considering owning up until the mid 80's. And even then most cars werent getting "quick" again until the late 80's. There are a few novel cars from the early 80's (Svo's Turbo Dodges, Turbo Buicks, GTX Mazda's) which I'd consider "fun" but nothing amazingly fast.
