One Last Rev Down Memory Lane
Nostalgia for bygone eras is one of American drivers? favorite obsessions. How many great cars there used to be: The 1963 Corvette Stingray. The ?64 Pontiac GTO. The ?67 Chevrolet Camaro. Steve McQueen?s Mustang in the 1968 movie ?Bullitt? still has passionate fans. Even the ?69 Dodge Charger became a star retroactively, when a bright orange one known as the General Lee appeared on TV?s ?The Dukes of Hazzard.? And let?s not forget one of the best-named vehicles of the muscle-car age, the Plymouth Barracuda, which, incidentally, was originally set to be called the Panda.
