1969 Chevrolet Chevelle vs 1987 Buick GNX - Generation Gap: Muscle Cars
Cast your vote here: http://www.hagerty.com/Articles-Videos/Articles/2014/10/13/Muscle-Cars Join Ken Lingenfelter in supporting the Ronald McDonald House charity: www.rmhc.org In the latest episode of Generation Gap, Matt and Davin have brought the muscle. Matt’s pick, a 1987 Buick GNX, is arguably one of the best muscle cars to come out of the 1980s, with a McLaren Performance-tuned turbo-charged V-6 putting 245 hp and 360 ft.-lb. of torque to the ground. Davin thought he could slip one by with this unassuming 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle. The secret is that it’s a rare COPO with the 427-cid engine with 425 hp and 460 ft.-lb. of torque. This Chevelle looks like grandma’s car, but goes like a Yenko. Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsAegdhiYLEoaFGuJFVrqFQ?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com
