Here's interesting info boys

Recommended Posts

Well having a minor discussion on another forum about our little c motor. Some say it was a overgrown misfit and never ran good on street till highly modified and ports filled to mimick the run of mill motors. Hmmmm! Glad im not the only one who thinks otherwise. http://www.streetmusclemag.com/news/musclecarclub-coms-list-of-the-50-fastest-muscle-cars/. Then heres another from chebby camp. Seems the boss is in good company. Even dethroned fords own king 428. http://www.chevyhardcore.com/news/the-top-50-fastest-muscle-cars-of-all-time/

Yes coupe its very interesting. A lot of guys will say its bogus reporting but he does say he took info from quote a accumulation of reports and edited into one. The engine size on most are 400+ cubes. So says a lot to where the Cleveland sits.

They should change the name from "all time" to "pre-2000".  Even a regular old 2018 mustang GT or camaro SS would sit at the top of those lists with high-11/low-12 second quarters.  Let alone the Demon running deep into the 9s and the Hellcat in the 10s.  Even the 4-cyl ecoboost mustangs would place up on that list running 13.8s.  Camaro ZL1 and GT350 are well into the 11s...  Its a mad new world out there.  Even my SUV is in the 13s!

agree more qualifiers are needed for modern engine management controlling giving unfair advantage to anything that isn't carb & vac/mech dizzy. the turbo buick is even on one of the lists, what else forced induction? OK fine for a flash pop article but GTFOOH for serious conversation

Apples to Apples, Who's The King?

Imagine just the differences in just TIRES,

1968 vs 2018, those old 7" Firestone Polyglass would disappear in a cloud of smoke under my 2015 ecoboost Mustang. 

I agree there should be a Pre-1993 and post 93.. 

Why 93? because that was the first year for the Mustang Cobra. 

Maybe 85? the last year of the Carbureted GT Mustangs..
