We like it even more when they line up some cool rides like this to do battle and the races are nice and close like in this video from the muscle 289 on YouTube. In this battle of old-school versus new age, this 67 Ford Fairlane with a 289 CID engine facing off with a 2008 Dodge Challenger on this long stretch of highway south of the border.
Surprisingly to most, the Fairlane jumps out and grabs the lead, and appears to hang on to it through the quarter mile, despite the Challenger trying his best to reel him in on the top end. The old Ford put the whoop on the new Challenger, showing us why it’s never okay to scoff at the vintage hotrods among us.
