I whole heartedly agree with this. i own 2 fast 2 furious on DVD, and i also have friends who race (legitimately) and own fancy cars. by far, if i have to choose between the 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago, 1969 Chevy Chevelle or the 1997 Toyota Supra, i'll take the Chevelle 10 out of 10 times. besides, if you know what to "modify" your car with, like sequential fuel injection, F1 headers and the works, you actually can get better mpg ratings than those 1.8L 4 cylinder ricers. That and i prefer the sound of muscle over the squeal of a V12 barely pushing 500HP.
I have nothing against ricers though, when they're finished right and have a full paint job and everythings been taken care of, they look great...they don't have the sound though. the purr of power, or the sound of a fart cannon?
there are a few things that mix the best of both worlds though. Factory Five Racing's GTM mixes the power of All American Muscle cars into the looks of an exotic car. Well worth every penny (my friend just finished building his, and took it to california for car shows and racing).
Chevy muscle FTW!
