I spent a lot of time in Akron as a kid....I raced Soap Box Derby all across the world up until I was about 14.I remember being out at a normal Friday or Saturday night street cruise in Akron, probably around 1981.
I was already in love with Mopar muscle cars and I had my 68 Roadrunner out ($250 car.)
There was a Superbird parked with us and I was just in awe, acting like the 18 year old dumbass I was (compared to the 58 year old dumbass I am), talking **** about how it was the fastest thing around.
Well one older gentleman with a street rod tried to explain a little about power to weight ratio, claiming his car would beat it.
I thought he was completely nuts, but it planted a seed and I would later learn about such things.
I wonder what he thought of my generation of car guys.
