That’s the question posed by Motor Trend in a video that features old and new versions of each, along with plenty of burnouts and rumbling V8s.
There’s just no way to deny that the 2011 Camaro SS, Challenger SRT8 and Shelby Mustang GT500 can accelerate faster, turn better and stop quicker than the old-timers. But is that what it takes to make a muscle car great?
Follow the jump to watch the all-American muscle car video, which is inexplicably narrated with what sounds to me like an Aussie accent. Larry the Cable Guy might have been a better fit, but I’m not one to complain.
If it were me, I’d take the class, comfort and performance of that modern GT500 over the smell of “unburned hydrocarbons” that makes the old cars so appealing. But that 1970 Challenger would be hard to ignore if it had a “for sale” sign in the window!
If all this talk has you itching to put your toes deep into the right pedal of one of these fine cars, head over to DealFinder and let the search begin!
