DailyDirt: Classic Cars 2.0

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Cars have changed a lot over the past hundred years, and sometimes new cars don’t quite look so great. It’d be nice to see some classic cars get modern technology in them, but it ain’t simple or inexpensive. Check out a few of these classic cars that might get a modern makeover.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Re: “Muscle Car”

The 1970 LS6 Chevelle had 458-hp, could pull .8 on a g-pad with radial tires (not offered OEM), and could prevent you from touching the dash with so much force, when offered in the the 4-speed config (in the middle of the 1-2 shift).

The 1972 WS6 suspension package on the Super Duty Trans Am was the first production car to break a 1-g on a lateral skidpad (before Corvette, which was also deemed a ‘muscle car’)

A 1974 Trans-Am I personally owned with factory 455-cu.in. engine toasted a Ferrari 308 on top end (clock speed 171-mph) in 1988 in the Silver City Classic (a road race held in Nevada)

Careful of hypocracy – it is such a faulty thing, and Ferrari snobs normally die of disgrace when a $9,000 car toasts their $100k baby in front of people.
