There was always something terribly exciting about the sloppy, loose raw power and performance, albeit antiquated today, in those old 62' thru 67' Vettes that I can still fondly recall. You had to "drive" those cars, a misstep in your handling could easily have put you in a less than enviable situation. This may be why the Ford Mustang GT's were and are so popular. You have to "drive" them, raw and unforgiving power is thrilling, and dangerous! The new Vettes are essentially four wheeled fighter jets!
Owned a 62, 2- 63s, 67, 73, and driven most all of them. Favorite was my 1967 coupe. Scariest was my 62 with 327 CI. 340 horsepower. You had to be a driver to handle the 62, a real white knuckle ride.
