I saw a test comparing a stock high hp late model Vette with a 67 Vette ( I think an L 88?) in the 1/4 and 0 to 60 times! The new Vette beat out the 67 but the 67 had stock tires 7 inch tread the new vette had stock tires but with a really wide tread and it also had stock traction aids that the early Vette didn't come out with!! I watched that and thought it was so unfair!!!!!

Its like the stock factory muscle cars of the 60s, and 70s they came out with stock tires of a tread pattern of 6 to 7 1/2 inches with bare bones suspensions, The new muscle has big tires big tread,traction aids etc ! and to compare the 2 to 1/4 and 0-60 times with data from 60s and early 70's compared to new car test data today is Ludicruse! But you see it over and over again
