I agree. I think cudas look way better as convertibles. And normally I'm not a huge fan of chevelles but the ls6 was I'm pretty sure the fastest or second fastest muscle car ever made

If you don't consider cars outside of the 60's and 70's it was in the top 5. But no, not the fastest or second fastest.

Well obviously not outside of the 60s and 70s..that was the muscle car era. And from what I've read and heard, the only car that really gave the ls6 a run for its money was the L88, both in factory spec

427 Cobra kicked it's ass up one side and down the other. '66 Vette with the 427 was faster. '69 Roadrunner, Hemi Cuda. All faster.

Guys, the space shuttle put all of those cars to shame.

Well, except for the ones that blew up.

Fastest production car ever built. Yes, quicker than an McLaren F1

They were banned from the rally track for being "too fast" and they had an "unfair advantage" over other competition

I believe you on the shelby cobra, I never thought about the cobra, but that wasn't a a traditional mass produced car like everything else. But no way on the 69 roadrunner or the 427 corvette. The hp and torque came no where near that of the ls6. Maybe the factory ratings were the same, but the true specs were much greater on the ls6

What were the specs on the ls6 anyway?

The 1965 427 Cobra could accelerate from 0-100 & back to a stop in 14.5 seconds, very impressive.

Cobras and 'Vettes are more sports cars than muscle cars.
