It might not be THE classic rivalry, but classic Ford vs. Chevy is always a good time.
We're very fortunate to live in the era we do. For quite a long time after the end of what we think of as the classic muscle car period, the new cars coming out of Detroit just couldn't match those old machines for straight-line speed. So, for a lot of people who felt the need to go fast, chief among them drag racers, a whole culture and industry was built around modifying and racing those classic cars. It survives today, even with the improvements in what is coming from the factory.
So sit back and enjoy some good ol' fashioned tire shredding and great big howling V8s.
