Nice car. smile Can't read German though.

I drive a Camaro myself - not a vintage one though - mine is a 1999 Z28. C23 on here also has a rather nice vintage American car - hopefully he'll post a piccy of it if he sees this. wink

Yup, Dave's Torino is rather special. smile

Here's mine...all fairly standard apart from uprated brakes and a flowmaster twin exhaust (these pics taken before the exhaust was put on):-

Naah, think Dave has though... biglaugh Seriously though, I imagine my car is quickest out of the 3 but when a car looks as good as Dave's or Poptyg's, "who's the fastest" really means nothing.

Both lovely vintage motors. lurve

Speed, style, performance....not in that particular order are all valid priorities for a classic ride. My car screams horsepower, but its also a 4000 pound monster, so a 0-60MPH is not a priority, but in a 1/4 mile run it would smoke many other cars. Besides, try doing a burnout in a modern car.....doesn't work very well. Phil, you have the 5.7 Litre V-8 set up on your car?

Indeed I do Davido - a friend of mine was adamant that I would only regret it if I went for the 3.8 V6...he said, "once you've driven a V8...". And he was SOOOOOO right! laugh The stock car is very polite sounding unless you go flat to the floor so I had the exhaust changed - sounds like a burbling V8 now and can roar without being "annoy the neighbours" loud (although they all love it too).

woohoo

Indeed you are right my Chevy loving friend! Nothing like a Big block V-8 to haul your ass down the highway! I bet those Flo-masters sound nasty when you get up on it......
