What Is The Best Classic Ever?

The-Best-Classic-Ever-5676756

By Mark Weisseg

The big debate. What is the best classic car of all time? Is it the iconic 57 Chevy, the 65 Mustang Shelby, the 65 GTO, the Roadrunner, or maybe the Chevy 409. My gosh, so much to choose from where in the world do you begin.

Should we look at sales, quarter mile times, track times, or word of mouth? Clearly they are all winners and it would be impossible to pick just one.
Corvette owners will fight to the death that the new 2015 Vette is the best ever. The Camaro guys ( and gals) will say the 69 Z/28 is perfect, but holy smokes the new Camaro has the creature comforts we all love. So, if you want to pick a good fight go to a car show and yell into the bull horn that the Pontiac Tempest is the best handling, best ride, best torque of anything ever built. Then, be prepared to be escorted off the property or booed until your ears are sore.

So, what is my pick for the best classic fast car of all time? Starting World War Three is not in my top ten things in the bucket list so I need to leave it to you. I would love to hear what you think and why. Now, just because you own a 66 Nova with a 396 bolted in there does not mean that is your vote. Please take a deep breath and think this through. I have my opinions but who cares what I think. I care about what you think and why. Be clear and concise and tell us why. I will bet there is a laundry list of cars that all of you think are the best. Is it steering, looks, resale factors, or is engines and pipes?

I look forward to hearing from you and your vote.

An Unbelievable Snow plough 57 Chevrolet

By Mark Weisseg In parts of the west such as the Dakotas they are being hammered with blizzard type snows. Schools and stores are closed and the big dig out continues. When these events happen everyone that can man a shovel does so. Snow blowers, snow throwers and hard work gets the roads and driveways passable again. As bad as it is for some, there is a lot of money to be made plowing snow. When I saw this picture of a ’57 Chevy body on top of a four wheel drive truck I smiled. Hey, this old Chevy is plowing snow. Yes, what every sound American should do. Find a car that is world renowned and make a plow truck out of it. Forget taking the body and putting back on the real frame and making it a very pricey classic. That’s silly. This guy is a genius. Next, I hope he finds a rare 59 Caddy convertible and does the same thing…….. You see, every day another Einstein is born. Some Einsteins never find there calling. They land up being land Barron’s or stupid Doctors or lawyers. But other Ei

2016 Ford Mustang GT RHD Info. Graphic

As we mentioned in a previous article, the right hand drive version of the Mustang is now being sold on the Indian continent. The reasons for making a right-hand drive and hitting those markets of the world is obvious. So, to help see exactly what you get with this RHD model, the Max about website have made a cool info graphic for the car as you see below. RHD Mustang Info. Displacement – 4951 cc Maximum Power – 401 PS @ 6500 rpm Maximum Torque – 515 NM @ 4250 rpm Gearbox – 6-Speed Automatic Top Speed (KMPH) – 250 kmph Ground Clearance – 137 mm Boot Space – 383 litres Fuel Tank Capacity – 60.9 litres We wonder now if the other muscle car makers will follow suit and start producing vehicles in right-hand drive.

The Mustang Beats The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro sales

As we’ve reported recently, the 2016 Mustang is now selling across the globe in right-hand drive and introducing everybody to the muscle car world. This could have been a big gamble for Ford, but it seems to have paid off as sales for the 2016 Mustang are doing better than ever. However, Dodge and Chevrolet, especially the Mustang’s main rival, the Camaro, are staying on home territory and sales don’t seem to be anywhere near as good. Sales for the Chevrolet Camaro have dropped in the US by 42.3%, shifting 4969 units, a drop of 13.5% compared to this time last year. As the world grows to a more globally integrated arena, it makes sense to start pushing muscle cars in other territories. The Mustang, although traditionally should be left hand drive, is doing very well in Europe, Australia and recently India in the RHD format. they are familiar with the Ford brand, so the Mustang brings a bit of exotic presence to the rest of the Ford lineup. Chevrolet have a presence with their other veh
