Old American muscle becomes new again

Here is a really good read about making the old, new again.  The Globe and Mail’s Peter Cheney captures the feeling of the wind and exhaust roar from the lost majesty of golden-age Detroit. He describes his recent adventures while driving on the back roads in Georgia, USA in a 1967 Pontiac GTO convertible which has been updated with the ultimate in modern aftermarket upgrades.  In keeping with the American muscle theme, wanted to share an amazing 1970 Pontiac Firebird worth talking about.  As a daily driver, I’m not where you would be able to showcase all 1200 horsepower from the twin turbos but it sure would be fun trying.

For those of you into American muscle with all the tricked out technology of today’s cars you need to check out YearOne.  They also have an amazing fleet of car builds which would compliment any classic car enthusiast’s garage.
