Cool BMW Turbo Gullwing

I have always thought the Bracq 1972 Gullwing was a nice looking and more interesting car, than the later Giugiaro e26 M1. With an uprated 2 liter 2002 Turbo engine (200 hp) it could do 0-60 mph in...

Question Performance trends. LSx V8 or Turbo 4?

The Nova seems more current in thinking. Recent cars have smaller turbo engines for emissions and economy, plus better handling with less weight in the nose. The old school way was more displacement...

Question The cars that time forgot...

Either they didn't get the credit they deserved, or have become forgotten since their heyday. I think the 1984 C4 falls into that category. As fast as an original Jag XKE, or Ferrari Dino 246 GTS (7...

Smile Re: Fastest 4 seater in 1975 North America?

I am not counting 2+2s, only full 4 seaters. Hutchman, if you bought that SD 455 the relatively small difference in price from 400 to SD 455 would have netted you a huge investment gain...

Question Fastest 4 seater in 1975 North America?

With stats of 0-60 mph in under 9 seconds and top speed of 120 mph were the Trans Am 455 and BMW 530i 4 speeds, the fastest full 4 seater cars in 1975? I can't think of any others. Of course, there...

With all the advances in Vette tech since the King Of The Hill ZR-1, I would say that the once respected C3 is getting overlooked. It had the misfortune to have much of its career in the pollution...

Mazda's rotary cars were all rear drive, and when pollution controls were taking their toll on V8 pony cars, the RX series got praise. Those early '70s RX2s, 3s had the acceleration of a midsize V8...

Thumbs up Re: Under appreciated cars

I would add the 1967-68 Firebirds as under appreciated. Clean styling, 400ci power, 3 speed auto. Then power maxed or went down, and the styling got over the top as the '70s went on. Yup, the early...
