    That sure would have been fun to see up close and personal.

    Back in the day I had a '68 Camaro Z28 302. It was quick and a lot of fun.

    Noting like what you are going to ride in above.

    It was a lot of fun living through the muscle car years and the oldies.

    And you want to "go for a ride in that thing!!!" I am reminded of a quote from a few years back.....

    Faster, Faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.....
