The legend of the perfect track car lives on. Yes, hooning falls within that legend (even though that word probably didn’t even exist back in the ’60s, they still partook in it).
Many may think of the ‘60s and ‘70s as the glory days of American muscle, but come on! Cars these days are pushing limits people in the ‘70s didn’t even know existed.
Take the new Z/28 Camaro, for example. Amazing handling, incredible power, and aggressive styling… What more could you want out of a car? The 2015 Z/28 was inspired by the original 1967 and weighs in over 300 pounds less than its popular modern counterpart, the ZL1. It houses a 7.0-liter V8, pushes over 500 horsepower, and is only available with a manual transmission. It has a faster Nürburgring lap time than the Porsche 911 and, unlike many modern cars, air conditioning is an “option”– proving this thing really was designed to be enjoyed and hooned around, not just driven from point A to point B.
We spotted this red Z/28 on BrianZuk’s Youtube channel doing exactly that; what it does best. People in the comments section ooh’d and awe’d and praised the car and driver, claiming “that’s how you enter or exit a highway” and that that’s “the only acceptable way to go around corners in a musclecar.”
We love to see people actually putting their cars to use, and what can we say? Pretty badass car, pretty badass driver, pretty badass way to get on the freeway.
