Agreed. Mechanically they are not sophisticated, and would get crushed in the 1/4 mile by a strong 4 cyl. these days. (or worse yet an inline 6)

But a tight, frame-off restored, V8 powered, late 60s car has a certain amount of class and appeal that you can't get from a modern car. And you have the added bonus of being able to work on them easily if you want.
