We are in a new golden age of muscle cars. Dodge has just released the performance figures for the Challenger SRT Hellcat.

707 Horsepower

Ford says their Mustang Shelby GT500 is "The Most Powerful Production V8 Engine on Earth". Well, they're going to have to update that statement a little. 661 horsepower is not something for the timid, even so.

Chevrolet is now in 3rd place with the Camaro ZL1. A measly 580 horsepower. How could one possibly be seen in one? So embarrassing.

All I can say is: Enjoy it while it lasts. The CAFE hammer is coming, and it will shut the party down, just like in the mid-1970s.
