I think we need to get rid of compact cars and go back to the good ol' 400+ CI engines that were a ton of fun, well, maybe 2 tons lol

I'd love to have a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Stomp on the gas and let that 454 cubic inch, big-block V8 engine ROAR. Goes O to 60 in NO TIME...HOLD ON!!!

We are supposed to disagree.

Soooooo.

We should all be walking, or riding a horse. Cars are a curse on humanity. So when they start to use cars no car should be able to go from 0 to 30 in less than 25 seconds and their top speed should be 35. OMG....boring
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

I had a 1966 Galaxy. Loved it.

Right now my 2010 mustang is a V8. Not 400 but a nice engine.

Nice thing about cars back then was they were large enough to be capable of being used as a home for a family of 4. Smile

Yours has the coyote motor right? if so, they are really awesome. Nice big ports on the heads and the block is great. Without even touching the valve covers, you can supercharge it and get around 600-700 rwhp. Now that's some ooooomph!!

You are dead wrong! We need to go back to the classic cars of the 1930's. We need Packards, Dusenbergs, Auburns, Cadillacs, Pierce Arrows, Hispano-Suizas, Rolls Royces and the like. Now those were automobiles!

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I disagree with everything everyone has said so far.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I disagree about horses as transportation. Our streets would be flooded with urine and "road apples" would be everywhere. Walking is the more natural mode of transportation that would have the benefit of getting everyone in shape. Instead of taxi's we would have rickshaw's. There would be no more DUI's, we could have WUI's instead.

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was an early proponent of smaller and more fuel efficient cars. According to things I've read, he believed them to be the "wave of the future," and he was pretty much right.
That said, I do still love the roar from my '74 Satellite Smile

It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

We'll have to agree to disagree about the "don't post" business.

We already DO have WUI! Years ago I defended a guy who was charged with public intoxication. He had gone to a bar and felt he had one too many and decided to do the responsible thing and leave his car at the tavern and walk across the street to a motel where he would rent a room and sleep it off.

He staggered a bit while crossing the road and a cop saw him and cited him.

I won't tell you how the case was decided yet, because I'd like to hear some guesses as to how the case turned out.

I'm curious how the case went, but I can't venture a guess as it can be ridiculously unpredictable at times.
Keeping you safe . . . from keeping yourself safe.

Now, what are "road apples?"

Let's see, how can I put this? An apple goes into a horse on the front end, and a road apple comes out the back end!! Smile

Very nicely put Smile .

To answer Bob. I would guess that he was charged with reckless endangerment after spending the night in jail. Probably got time served and a nice fine.

My first car was a used Pontiac Catalina with a 400 engine. That boat could fly among other things.
