Dang! Did this just go right over your head? I was hoping to have some fun with this thread!

I don't know what this means. I am confused. But that's one nice lookin' escort. If you don't want her, I'd jump on her and hammer the heck out of her. She may have a few miles on her but that's OK. Just means she's well broke in and knows how to handle gettin' the pedal to the metal. She does have great curves. Wonder what her rental fee is.

Allow me to counter with the Toyota CORONA!!!!

My first functioning car was a blue, 4-door, '87, 5-speed corolla. Drove that while building my actual first car. '79 Camaro.

Before I became 'Murican I was building a 383 stroker for my '79 Corvette 'Murican built piece of junk.
Had a 5 speed Tranny for it too.
I swear I should have gone with a Toyota Supra and up the turbo.

Reminds me of watching highlights of LS Fest at Bowling Green, Ky. Besides Drag Racing they have a serious burnout contest.

You made the right choice in going with an aspirated 383 'vette over a turbo-charged anything. There's no replacement for displacement.

My two favorite past cars were a '65 Riviera and a '73 SD Trans Am. Both had 455s.
I'd love to get my hands on one of those old muscle cars. It's funny how small they look compared to the modern cars, though. When I was younger, they looked huge.

I'll tell you what, though. If I got one, I would seriously consider dropping in a modern fuel-injected system with a modern 5-speed transmission. That would be one heck of a sleeper.

That old automatic in the Riv. was bullet proof! I used to do burn outs and slam shifts with that thing and just couldn't hurt it (dumb kid shit). The SD came stock with a Muncie Rock Crusher 4 speed that was the same way! That wasn't fun to do stop and go driving with though, it was made to be rough shifted!

You never hear anyone call a transmission bulletproof anymore. They just don't make them like they used to.

Crazy thing is, they use automatics now because they claim the manual trans and clutches can't handle the torque and power. It could if they'd build them right. But then...niether can the automatics in the 125 hp econo boxes. And the CV trans....whoa nelly. Not made for US style driving.
