    What do you think about the new viper?


    Anybody know anything about the quality of cars that Dodge manufactures.

    They look really nice, but how do they drive?

    No, don't really know that much about car's. I'm only familiar with the one's I like, such as the muscle car's of the 60's & 70's, or the new hot rod's of today I mentioned.

    I love the car's of yesterday, 50's through early 70's mostly. I think body style wise new car's have much to be desired. I couldn't tell you what make/model many car's are today...too many look alike. There was no doubt years ago what make a car was...very distinquishable. I appreciate uniqueness with most everything, lol.

    I grew up in the era of muscle cars. everyone spent all their spare time and money on making their big & small block v8's "GO", the paint job was the last concern. 6 cyl's were for sissy's and 4cyl for old ladies. a friend of mine had a cuda hemi that shook so much at idle he kept a phillips in the glove box to keep tightening the dash screws that would loosen up. the only car as fast [they never got to race each other] was a 66 nova with a 427 in it. after the friday night football games everyone would go to our local hamburger joints....the "stop & GO" and "carol's club burgers" whose buildings were in the same shopping center and their lots were back to back so hundreds of cars would show up on a good night. that deep throaty sound they made at idle was a magnet for guys and gals w/in earshot. after they raced their engines it took a little while before your normal hearing came back. oohs and awes at new/improved arrivals...races were arranged. the hottest cars attracted the hottest girls. friendships were forged as help was offered to work for free. tempers flared as friendly "ranking" got to personal and the police got called. yes those were the good old days.

    Your memories of yesteryear related to muscle car's were very similar to how our's were back then too! Sometimes someone would open up their headers for even more rumble, which was illegal cause of the noise, lol.
