    Classic muscle car 0-60 and 1/4 mile times, Very interesting comparison to G8 and GTO

    I copied this post from G8board. Very cool and somewhat surprising how slow some of the 60's muscle cars actually were.

    Post is from Old Goat on G8 board.


    Here is an interesting site. Just click on a link for whatever type of car you want to see 0-60 and quarter mile times. I think the times may go back as far as the 60's.

    I copied a few of the runs. First number is 0-60, second number is quarter mile time.
