I don't really mind if they're better at handling, I can get it good enough for me, and personally I just love the style and look of classic old school muscle, and even some of the new muscle.

European cars are better at tracks where you have twists and turns, American cars are better at going down a drag strip.

Not arguing there, but you can get some American cars, such as the new Corvettes and Vipers, to come pretty close to European handling

I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree with what was stated in the beginning of this thread, about European cars being the best. I'm all about those big rip-snorting unapologetic gas-guzzling burn-rubber-in-a-straight-line American muscle cars.


My dream car is a 1970 (or '71) Dodge Challenger with either a completely rebuilt and upgraded 440 Magnum converted to electronic fuel injection, OR a 3rd generation Hemi from a Hellcat Challenger (6.2L engine, supercharged, 707 horsepower and 650 foot pounds of torque), with headers and a performance exhaust system with whatever engine I choose. Transmission: either a Tremec T56 6 speed manual or a Torqueflite 727 with an overdrive gear splitting kit (puts an overdrive into every gear, gives me 6 instead of 3 gears). I'll be completely replacing the suspension and brake systems with an RMS AlterKtion coil-over suspension kit for the front, and a Street Lynx rear, anti-sway bars included. Brakes will either be Brembo or Wildwood discs, 6 piston in the front and 4 in the rear. 


May be cutting new wheel tubs to run 18's or 19's all around, performance tires with appropriately styled rims, new paint job, and a completely new modern style interior that still has an old-school inspiration, and of course Classic Auto Air air conditioning. I haven't worked out a lot of the details yet, especially with the aesthetics (I haven't even decided what color to paint the car), but its slowly coming together. I'm intending this to be a project once I'm in the Air Force (I'm going ROTC in college) and making decent money while living largely expense free and investing heavily. That's really the only way I could afford something like this lol
