Why The Old Stuff Was Cool (Even When It Was Slow)

It's hard to imagine a 7.4 liter V8 that only made 200 hp. It did. Back in '76, the year my Pontiac Trans-Am (which I still have) left the Norwood, Ohio...

Gearing Matters

Weight - and gearing - have a yuge effect on fuel economy. Even to the extent of almost eliminating 40 years of “advanced” technology, including computer-controlled electronic fuel injection. To make the...

Old Car Pre-Flight!

Pilots usually don’t fly before they make sure the plane will. Or rather, that it will probably continue flying once it’s up in the air. They’ll do a thorough walk-around and...

The Syclone That Came… And Went

Camaro, Challenger and Mustang: Great Cars – But Not Muscle Cars…

The Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang are great performance cars, but they aren't muscle cars. That species is extinct - and there's no bringing them back.  Muscle cars were born...

Did you know the Japanese built a GTO?

It didn't have had three deuces and a four-speed - or a 389. Instead, it had state-of-art technology, including an available twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC V-6, viscous-coupled all-wheel-drive system, four-wheel-steering and...
