Recipe for the perfect muscle car?

What is the perfect muscle car? Ask anyone, and you wil probably come up with a different answer. Ford guys swear its the old mustang. Mopar guys say there’s nothing better than an old charger. A chevy fan might offer up a camaro or chevelle. These models, plus a thousand others would be perfectly acceptable answers. How do we find some common ground? Well, now days, a classic car has come to mean more than just an old car. There are modified classics, originals, hot rods, and many other forms. Maybe one of the truest forms of an old classic car can be found in the pro-touring world. What is pro- touring? Pro-touring is where modifications are done to a car, with the sole purpose of function; that is, performance driving. From the high performance engine to an overdrive transmission, everything on a car was done for the purpose to make it the best driving and handling version of itself possible.

One of the best examples I have ever seen is this 1967 Chevelle SS, build by Derek at OCD Customs. It sports an Art Morrison frame, 572 Chevy engine, and 5 speed manual overdrive transmission. You would be hard pressed to fins any faults in this car. Zach Isaacson’s photos do it justice. Introducing The Sickness.

      Good question. I’m not sure that it’s ever been raced down the strip. If I had to guess, I’d guess mid 12s?
