I am starting this new topic which you are reading in order to post performance figures for muscle cars from different years. I had promised Eric in a previous post I would compare 1980s muscle car figure's to those from the 1960s and early 1970s, so after some thought I think I will expand it to all years.

The format of each post in this topic will consist of a shootout between two or more muscle cars in different performance categories. The reason for this topic is to show how Muscle Cars from different or same periods compare against each other.

As always anyone is welcome to reply to any of these posts with comments, questions, etc. And anyone can put their own comparisons on this topic. I think it will be a fun experiment with some interesting results.


I will start off first with a comparison between a 1970 Dodge Charger and a 2006 Dodge Charger (as compared by Muscle Car Review - 12/05), I posted this in another forum post:

Shootout #1:

Battle Of The Chargers.


2006 Charger R/T - Slalom Speed: 62.2 mph, 60-0 mph braking: 110 ft., 1/4 mile: 14.23 sec. @ 98.78 mph

1970 Charger R/T - Slalom Speed: 58.3 mph, 60-0 mph braking: 144 ft., 1/4 mile: 14.45 sec. @ 97.36 mph


Winner: 2006 Charger R/T
