If you are somebody in your forties or fifties, and you have fond memories of your first car, more than likely you owned an All-American muscle car. Many people throughout the United States are hunting for outdated muscle cars to restore. The main reason for this particular fascination is that no one is making these types of cars anymore. Everyone seems to be thinking about why no one has started to build muscle cars again.
Ford and Chevy continue to produce Mustangs and Camaros following their introduction in the sixties. The trouble is that every year these people get away from what a real muscle car is and they keep filling them with more and more computer equipment. Will any of us ever have the opportunity to experience a car that has a 327 together with a 4 barrel carburetor again? The sad facts are we will probably never see those categories of cars again.
The real issue is that people want to perpetually make improvements to things just for the sake of it. An example is the timeless 1967 Camaro, which is recognized as the all time great muscle car. Although it got many awards and was extremely popular, Chevy stopped producing it. It was likewise the same for the superb 1966 Mustang, with all its awesome styling and power, Ford decided to not make it anymore.
Here's where it gets intriguing. The VW Bug had been Volkswagen's most preferred model back in the day, so they reproduced it many years after the first version was no longer in production. This new Beetle sold very well despite its ultra modern design. If they'd only stuck to the original style, they could have sold more. It's difficult to do well if you constantly believe that doing things a new way is always better.
Let me suggest a little something take into consideration. What would you do if Chevy revealed that they were manufacturing a new Camaro with a 327 engine and a 4 barrel carburetor with no modern technology? I've actually quizzed hundreds of individuals in recent times and they all say that they would go out an get one. Why hasn't this occurred? If you have a request for a thing that is back-to-basics, can't the car companies listen?
At what point is Ford, Chevy or even Pontiac going to say, you know what lets produce a car like we used to. I believe that they may become hot specialties. Yet until these firms start paying attention to their customers, you'll have people looking for old muscle cars to restore.
We might get lucky and at some point these companies will choose to start making them. As of right now, the current leaders simply think adding new technology will make a better muscle car. It's probably a better idea to simply get back to your roots.
