    This was at Santa Pod the other weekend. A great day out for any muscle car fans. Feel free to drool away. :cool:

    American car haters look away now. ;)

    I dunno what it is; they're not all that pretty, they can't go around corners and ultimately they'd probably be as economically viable to own as a plane but there is something totally honest and strangely wonderful about American muscle cars! :)

    Great pics! :D

    Don't do nothing for me...:devil:

    Gimme a Micra 1.0L (16-valve :D ) instead, much more fun and usable.

    Here's one. It was a '72 318 rallye, slapstik shifter,drums all round,no power steering.Top Banana with a gaitor grain roof. I built another 318 for it,with a 650 Holley,Edelbrock manifold,crane cam and headers-you can see my homemade exhausts in the pic,2 lengths of straight pipes and 2 Volvo 740 back boxes,with chrome tails-no balance pipe. The rumble was awesome!,Standard power was 150BHP,after that I'd reckon on 260-280...It was brilliant,very quick, and the parts were pennies. A full gasket kit was £15,carb was £110,and manifold about the same. Cheap power!
    Before that I had a Dodge D100 pickup. 400ci Big Block.It would spin the 33x10.5x15 tyres at 30mph,and shoot flames out the sidepipes! 8MPG was painful though.

    I LOVE V8's!

    You wouldn't want that as a daily driver then!! :eek: :D Thanks for the pic and info. I've promised myself a '68 Charger, hopefully I'll get one eventually.

    It's the first time I've been to this event, I'm going to make it a regular thing now. :)

    I love American motors (yes even some of the newer ones too) :eek: Especially anything with that thunderously musical V8 rumble :D
