  2. its the death of v8's is probably better for the public… sure thing v8's are dying but do u see those new cars doing sub 5 seconds 0-60 like the kia stinger even without a big engine.. i mean that's pretty fast already not to mention gm is pushing a 3 seconds car to the public with such a low price tag.. like really? im kinda concerned about the safety with the new Corvette and tbh anything that's below 4 seconds (sub 4 s to me is when things get crazy)

    but then again, those cars these days handle so well its probably not as dangerous

  3. Any Cleatus with a Swiss Army knife can keep a pushrod V8 running and there are really cheap, high-performance crate engines out there.

  4. I am not sure you are right that a GTR is lighter than the old GTO. It seems modern cars seem to be heavier than the old ones mostly due to electronics and modern safety features.

  5. Muscle cars were cars Boomers could afford and they still are. Society was all about Boomers then and is all about Boomers now.

  6. Scotty, why when switching my 2002 chevy trailblazzer back to original iridium plugs from after market platnuims, did I have to clear computer to get it to run right?

  7. Democrats want to end everything that uses fossil fuel . That would also end the construction of any infrastructure projects but they haven't figured that out yet

  8. My Shelby has 555 rwhp and that is good enough for me lol. Anymore more hp and I'd need drag wheels

  9. You guys ever see those memes where it’s like “put anti-freeze in the gas tank so the gas doesn’t freeze in the winter” 😂 it would be sweet if he did a video on those telling people to not listen to those or not

  10. We do need more efficient engines. I put about $50 a week on average in my Northstar 4.6L v-8 and it is ridiculous. I would much rather roll with a super charged 3800 or a twin-turbo charged 4 banger.

    Reply

  11. Scotty I luv your channel. Keep up the good work! Traded a 2012 Chevy Cruze that was starting to get expensive with a 2019 charger rt (5.7). The V8 charger gives me more mpg smiles than any new car I’ve owned before.

    But it’s only a matter of time before big brother outlaws these sweet sounding V8s and sends them to the boneyard. I wonder how many green politicians themselves are being chauffeured around in big V8 suburbans while telling us to drive a Prius.

    Cheers!

  12. Modern technology provides us with FAR SUPERIOR cars to those 50 years ago, but according to NASA, they no longer have the technology to now return men to the moon. So, we're supposed to believe they actually landed men on the moon 50 years ago? Puh…leeze.

  13. As a muscle car purist and general performance aficionado, there is one old school hot rod saying that will always hold true.

    "There is no replacement for displacement!"

  14. The muscle car has ended for ordinary people. For the elites they are alive and well and getting more and more power.

  15. Anyone still driving a 1969 Cadillac? My Dad bought one in '69 and gave it to me in '76. I drove it until 1980 and sold it for $1,000. As I remember it had a 472 cubic inch engine that purred like a kitten. The don't make them like that any more…

  16. These American v8 muscle cars are a useless joke. A turbo 4 cylinder with a good transmission will smoke any of them . Except maybe the 800+ horse ! demon. Ya that one is special. Good damn. that's an insane car !

    Reply

  17. People want to get rid of engines and focus on electrics because they don't polute. Cars with engines dont cause pollution, it's the energy they use that causes pollution. So instead of taking away what we car guys love, how about you all focus on perfecting biofuels instead of perfecting electeic cars. It's a win win, We keep our v8s, and cars won't pollute anymore

  18. Muscle cars were always expensive. The price they sold for back in the sixtys was not cheap. They sound cheap but once you figure inflation into it they were always a lot of money. I was 17 inr 1965 and no way could I afford one and none of my friends could either. We bought old junkers and did our best to keep them running. They were pretty simple and easy to work on and parts were cheap from the local junk yard. I had a couple cool cars back then but back then they were just worn out used cars and not considered classics yet. But todays cars do handle way better. But the old cars had stlye and were made in the USA by Americans. Thanks for the cool videos Scotty.

  19. Well I don’t believe it’s the end of the Muscle car.

    Muscle cars will never go out of style. For one reason people. People age and as you age you become more appreciative about tradition, values and classics.
    So Scotty I think you really out did yourself with this video. I mean you went right down the hill with this.

    Anyways I’m 20 years old and I love Muscle cars. V8’s there powerful and fast.

  21. Your kinda of right but i think the reasons why people buy those super power cars the feeling , the sound of the engine , the prestige . But if it was me i will buy an 60s or 70s muscle car , today's production is a big scam and unreliable

    Reply

  22. I'm going to be completely honest I have a V8 Corvette I recently got to test drive a Camaro V6 and was blown away with the power and acceleration I thought it was going to be slow or like a typical V6 but that thing was extremely impressive so I would get why the V8 would be dying out because it's also rare to race and have the freedom of enjoying peel outs and the true power of the vehicle. So I'm kind of feeling the V6 might be in my future. These modern v6s are ridiculous.

  23. Ozzy Osbourne here, talking about muscle cars is really soothing to me for some reason. I love it

  24. If the Dodge engineers have any say, they will keep building cars the way God intended! Front engine longitudinally position drive trains predominantly rear wheel drive musclebound V-8‘s! They are simply the last bastion of the best cars on the planet!

  25. You said ask a question so here it goes Scotty, I know you don't like electric hybrid cars I can only imagine how you feel about phev's lol but if said car was saving someone $200 a month in gas plus oil changes do you believe that it's cost is worth the small chance of something going wrong, shoot I've got a really bad apr (I'm fixing asap) and the total saved is only slightly more than the payment, and when I refinance it'll probably make money for me. Currently at 166 miles per gallon equivalent and rising, I was spending almost $200 a month on gas and now I won't spend $200 in a year, haven't even filled the tank in 4 months lol.

  26. Pushrod v8s are great. I have an LS3 which puts out 500 wheel, does 25mpg in my S2000 and has the same amount of valves to deal with as my camry…

    enough said.

  27. Hey Scotty I wanna buy a Dodge Challenger scat pack, but I wanna get some info before I buy it, more on reliability terms …

  28. If the big three keep duking it out I could only imagine the HP in 5 years for a regular mustang or charger or camero ??😅😅😅i mean 700 hp stock?? Or will it phase out 😅😅and only be 4 bangers and 6s because they can just say there is a top out?? I mean eventually there's going to be a limit??? Or maybe cars will make 1000 hp and be safe ?? Lol I drive a v6 rodeo stick and I love 4 bangers and 6 s I've owed a few 5.0 fox bodies and a 03 Mach 1 I just don't feel or when there's going to be a limit 😅😅😅😅long live the V8s hopefully they will still be around when my son is 18 lol 😅 cheers everyone! Great vid Scottie!

  29. Sixties crap cars, seat belts were optional , the inner tube tires standard, I lost a few friends because of those early barges. The drink driving helped take them out too.

  30. Is it pontiac gto, because many will argue that impala was the first muscle car. I think it was Scotty's Celica but that is my opinion.

  31. Import owners just hate mopar because its expensive for them. Dont hate because you drive a riced honda/toyota.

  32. Hi Scotty! question; if you could build, tune and drive a race car what would you build? Dragster, Funny Car, Alcohol Dragster, Pro-Mod or would you do circle track, F1, Drift?
    Cheers Scotty!

    p.s. were you in the Army?

    Best,

  35. Real issue.
    Prices are the death of the muscle car hobby. It use to be a working man's hobby now it's for the rich only. In both working on them and owning them.
    Some jackazz bought my 1970 nova ss last summer for 26k. I bought it as a young adult in 1993 for 4k, put 5k into it over 25 years doing my own labor including a paint job in 2013. All original except hood and rear quarters. I didn't even have it for sale, was approached at small muscle car sunday drive event through twin cities. Now some millionaire on lake minnetonka has my old nova. A nova. LOL. Hey that 26k paid off my home mortgage.
    I was done with that hobby anyway, I'm a sportbike guy as well, much cheaper hobby btw.
    My dad had a boss mustang, a gtx 440 and his beloved 1970 454ss chevelle. All bought new by him within 5 years of each other while he was on the line at the st. Paul Ford plant making a average salary. That's how affordable cars were in the late 60s to early 70s. A working man, with a working wife, my mom, with a new baby, me, living in a newly built house in hastings, was able to afford all there legendary muscle cars at once and still have a new home and put food on the table. Try buying three current or even three original muscle cars now and see how that works out for a basic working man.
    His three were auctioned of at the big show in the late 90s after he could no longer drive them well due to health reasons. Those three cars bought my parents a second home in AZ.
    Moral of story, muscle car hobby for us regular folks is dead.

  36. Electric motors will eventually replace internal combustion engines. Cleaner, simpler, quieter, more powerful………no comparison, especially when you consider the continuing battery advancements.

  37. Now the question I have is one of dimension. Back in the days of Barney Oldfield they had giant cylinders in these cars to push huge amounts of gasoline into them to blast those things down the road at high speed. Then they improved carburetion and other features of these engines so that now they have a much smaller cylinder than what they had in those days..

    So what could be wrong with creating a V8 engine with a much smaller cylinder than these six cylinders that are now being made? Or even going to V12?

    I do know that one attraction of these type of engines was a smoother power production than in a four or a two. More consistent torque.

    I mean if having fewer cylinders is better why don't they make 1 cylinder cars today? I mean that would be easy. One cylinder means one spark plug means one fuel injector no need for distributor cap because there would be no distribution to go….. so yeah a Mazda one cylinder–why not?

    Or you might prefer if Mustang or Chrysler did that.

  38. Your not telling the whole truth. The reason why New Challengers and Chargers, particularly in the high end trims (Hellcat and up) hold their value is because Dodge makes them in more abundance then Ford ever does with their overpriced GT500. Dodge wants more people in their cars, while Ford wants the GT500 to always be I the hands of the rich and elitist pricks! That’s why they are hoping to only produce 5,000 GT500s this year and dealers will have them marked up over 100k dollars 😂.

  39. Some of the fastest production cars ever made are being made today. Many still have V8 options. Chargers, Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes etc.
