Imagine that exact same engine in a car that's 600 pounds lighter and has better aerodynamics.

I have been in many fast cars, but those older cars, with some extra umph, sure do bring a smile to my face.

Had a 67 LeMans with a '69 GTO 400 in it. Would haul ass, wouldn't tear up the pavement like my '69 Z/28 did, but one hell of a car. Especially since it had OHC6 on the fenders. Many people fell to the badest straight 6 around.

It helps that I had the pleasure of driving my friend's '68 convertible from IL to DC after he graduated from University.

As I have gotten old, I find that I rarely do anything worth remembering.

Definitely a 67, I grew up with GTOs. My Dad always had a 64-67 on hand. His baby was a 66, 421 bored .030 over, balanced, ported RA 3 heads with 3 dueces on a progressive linkage. M 22 rock crusher, 12 bolt "safe T track" with 4:11 gears.

Back in the day my brother bought a 69 Nova with a 6 banger in it. We pulled that out and put a 427 in it. He left the 250 emblem on the car. One night at the drive in cruise in some kid told him that was the best sounding 6 he ever heard. My brother didn't say anything.
