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.
    The operative phrase, of course, is "I'd consider". By the mid-'80's everyone had waited so long for some quick, stock cars to emerge that those Shelby Daytona's and the like seemed amazingly quick. The V8 Camaro's and Mustangs of the time got respect, even though they were probably about on par with my wife's minivan for raw acceleration.

    And I'm not meaning to pick on your cars; I liked the Fire Chicken TA's back in the day, too.
    Don't worry about it, I'm not embarrassed to have owned any of these cars, except maybe, the EXP And, FWIW, I never said they were fast, nor the first to call them muscle cars.

    True...and I wouldnt consider owning those cars for the "speed" factor but rather the just cool factor. I also wouldnt own one under the guise of a Muscle Car either.


    I drive a 300HP V-6 wagon/SUV that will embarrass most if not all those cars listed above...but at the end of the day it's not cool.
