Hot Rod Time Machine: Old vs New
Just How Good Were the Good Ol' Days? To find out, we've gathered three modern high-spec ponycars and matched them with their glory days ancestors. We're pitting a 2011 Camaro SS against the '69 Camaro SS396 that inspired its design; a 2011 Challenger SRT8 meets the '70 Challenger it so faithfully resembles; and a freshly minted Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible meets its '69 forebear.

Camaro Z/28 Impersonator - Hennessey Camaro HPE550 Throws Down with GT500 and SRT8
You wanted to see the SRT8 and GT500 throw down with a Camaro "Z/28"? You got it...sort of. The Camaro in this test isn't a Z/28 since Chevy hasn't officially made one, but the next best thing - a Hennessey-built Camaro with over 600 horsepower dubbed the HPE550. Can this Z/28 imitation take back the muscle car crown from the GT500 and SRT8?
