We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I wonder how many even know the days and ways of taking a girl to the "submarine races"?
But, anyway, here's another after the submarine race sound, Jan and Dean, Dead Man's Curve: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Anq4wdZc2Ow
NO! Thin lapels and ties are BACK! So are classic-style muscle cars. And, so much more. We can instruct the teens in how to have more fun. We're not old. We're seasoned. (Although I don't think "The Jerk" is coming back.)
I read a car mag last week that compared the cost and muscle of today's classic-style muscle cars to their originals. More muscle, a bit higher price adjusted for inflation. But, without the "rumble" sound of the old engines. What's a muscle car without the "rumble"?
That is true. Plus it's a hell of a lot harder to put a 3/4 race cam and solid push rods into these new engines. :>)
It would be impossible to do the same modifications to a modern standard production engine as I did to my ZR1. You'd have to have a custom engine built for installation.
And there isn't a genuine sound on the face of the planet like a pair of dual exhaust glass packs sans cats on a 454 dressed out with 3/4 cam, solid lifters and two, count 'em two, 950 CFM Holleys - nothing at all.
