I loved the look of that '73. I loved the sound and Acceleration of that hopped up '74, but I always thought Chevy blew it with regard to aesthetics.

My old man had a '70 454 that he sold ON my 16th birthday. I could have killed him. Red, side-pipes, white interior and white tops.

Thing was gorgeous.
