Hot Rod Time Machine: Old vs New

Just How Good Were the Good Ol’ Days? To find out, we’ve gathered three modern high-spec ponycars and matched them with their glory days ancestors. We’re pitting a 2011 Camaro SS against the ’69 Camaro SS396 that inspired its design; a 2011 Challenger SRT8 meets the ’70 Challenger it so faithfully resembles; and a freshly minted Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible meets its ’69 forebear.

  1. Out of that group of cars I’d take the 69 Camaro ss but I’d even go back farther to a 67 olds 442

  2. Old school.. I got a ride of a lifetime in a 69GT350.. The scoops, the rolebar, 3 pt. harness.. Man that was a fucking great ride..

  3. I like the old power steering not what you get now. It isn’t worth a shit. If I did with my Challenger now what I did in my chevelle I would totaled it. Thanks to the old power steering I saved it.

My granddad had a 53 four door. Ordered it in Seattle and picked it up after it came off the factory line. He told me that driving through Wyoming he looked down at the speedometer and it was pegged. Freaked grandma out. An old friend had two 53's. One had the three speed. Oldsmobile had to install the manual transmission because the Hydra-matic plant burned down

A beauty

Had a 54 holiday coupe. Beautiful car. Ran like crud.

I love it, love it. We had one from about that time, it was a convertible but I'm not sure of the year...

My dad loved the 98 Old's. And he had many of them over his years of driving. GM cars of the 50's are my favorite cars of that decade.

Jim Brock had a 53 Olds back in the late 50's. Great memories -Thanks, Don.

My dad loved the Olds. That was his favorite car to drive.

Would love to take a ride 😊

Robbie is ready to take a ride in his favorite car. Beautiful.
