    Love the driving gloves, love the car too, but lets take a moment to consider where we are 40 years after this car was built. Do we have a GM car being made at the moment that sounds as good? no, goes as good well maybe, just... Looks as good? no. It's just a bit sad to see we can't do a production car like that anymore. And these things weighed less than your average VN V6

    That Corvette sounds abolutely awesome! I have to agree nothing GM makes anymore sounds anywhere near that good... But as for 'just' going as good... The latest Corvette Z06 with the 377kw LS7 runs 0-100 in the mid 3 second range... So it would blow a stock 1967 Corvette away... I personally think the new corvettes look alot nicer as well, and im sure they would easily outhandle the 67 Corvette. But the look thing is probably a difference in opinion between the generations.
