I would also like to point out in the movie fast and the curiously slow . After racing those little FWD cars and SOME RWD cars like the new pride of HONDA *-2000 and the supra . What did the BIG BOY pull put FWD or RWD . I would love to see a FWD pop a wheelie!!!

True true. I wonder what the cost is on one of those now? I wonder if any are on the road?

Are you referring to the Super Birds that had the nose cone and high wing? As far as I knew, the standard Road Runner wasn't the 200+ car--it was the "Super Bird" (which also had a Road Runner decal). In any event, I would love to have either. That car was the first domestic car to be designed using a wind tunnel--thus the long front nose and high wing. They also found that they had to modify the roof line and extend it back a bit to rid the airfoil effect (it was prone to "take flight" in the wind tunnel). GREAT CAR. I had an acquaintence (in HIGHSCHOOL) who had one back in 1987. I have no idea how he got it. He would thrash that poor thing every day. He was also putting in rectangular headlights (what a fool) in place of the flip-ups. Last I saw his car, he had blown the rear end in it and it was sitting in his yard (back in '87).

FWD isn't just for old people. Look at me...19 and I prefer FWD. I find it handles WAY better than RWD plus it goes through snow a lot better. As long it'* not over the bumper, my car will go through anything.

Some of those old Mopars are enough to *almost* make me a Mopar man. Ya just can't beat those 426 hemis. My dad has an old 65 Baracuda-great styling-with the slant 6. very easy to work on and very reliable.

I actually do not descriminate against any muscle or classic car. My preference would be Ponchos though.
