    Maybe that should be afternoon delight?! If anyone remembers that Starline Vocal Band song, lol. But did the era that gave us bean bags and the Bee Gees, produce interesting cars? I have some affection for the Aspen & Volare. Those 360s made 195 hp net, which would have been almost 300 in the old gross days. smile image

    The Plymouth Road Runner version looked very Smokey & The Bandit in black and gold livery.

    1974 Matador Coupe X 401 was a hot mover for the time. High 14s with some mild ignition and carb adjustments.

    Germany's answer to the Corvette. It got a lot of publicity in movies like Risky Business and Scarface, both 1983 movies by coincidence. Car looked like a squashed Pacer imo, lol! biggrin image
