possibly the coolest car ever

Discussion in '1964 Cheetah GT V8' started by HemiHead, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. 0-60 in 6.2 seconds? i dont think so, try sub 4 second. This car had a top speed of over 200mph in its other version with the larger V8, pushing out over 430 hp. Plus this little beast only weighed 1650 pounds, that is ridiculous. I would kill for this car, it would smoke anything on the street today.

    I think this is about the coolest thing I've ever seen. It's really a shame that it didn't get to have the career it deserved.

    The GT40, while an amazing car, can't be compared with this because they are in totally different leagues. This car wasn't designed to win Le Mans.

  13. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    No, gt40 does own this, and sorry this car has like a drivers area of like 1 inch. It looks like a cockpit pf an airplane.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    You got that right about the cockpit. The driver's feet are actually positioned under the headers of the engine, his back directly in front of the axle!<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    Did anyone see the hemmings my classic car episode? Because Dennis gage sat in one of these baby's, as well as lot of other sweetass cars. I envy that guy...<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    This car is the saddest story of the racing world. Destined to become a legend, due to an unfortunate accident the project was grounded forever. With some of these cars bored to produce over 500 horsepower, they achieved unheard of speeds. Once even blowing its own doors off! One of the coolest looking cars ever produced, and one of the best rece cars of its time.<!-- Signature -->

    Hemmings My Classic Car is probably one of the best shows on the Speed Channel. Too bad I missed that Episode.<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    Wait.. is my classic car the one with the english guy that gets to just hop in cars that the rest of us dream about and drive them around. I hate that guy.. but only b/c I'm jealous of him. If it's the show I'm thinking of, did you guys see the ferrari episode? I almost pissed my pants.<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    its absolutely gorgeous in my opinion.. and has the performance to back it.. frankly i also feels its stats are probby underated.. i've seen it as a matchbox.. i'm gonna pick it up some day.. too bad i couldn't come across the real thang.. <!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    its cool<!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    probably the only car of the 60's that could give the Shelby Cobra a run for it's money, if not outrun it....don't think that the Cheetah ever made it into production, unfortunately
     
  25. Re: possibly the coolest car ever

    Compete with the Shelby, maybe - but not outrun it. Good on him for trying, though - Chevy should have grabbed that chance. Backed him like Ford backed Caroll. Competition is always healthy in the car world, it would have led to great race cars on both ends.
