    "The names - Mustang, Camaros, Chevelles, Firebirds, Roadrunners, Superbirds, 'Cudas, Stingrays, Superbees, Demons, Darts, GTOs, Chargers, Challengers, and Judges - may reach back into the mystic stock of a frontier past, but the colors belong to the horsepower wars, the years of the late '60s and early '70s, before OPEC calmed the excess. Triple blacks with polished chrome rims. B5 blues: the not-frills designation of the Mopar stockers. Vitamin C yellows and Hugger oranges: mantle of the legendary Wedges and Hemis. Metal flakes and primers: Air-Grabbers and cowl-induction hoods. Like the environment, gas was cheap. Drag racing may have evolved since then - the displacement thrills of the street are now the national pastime of NHRA with its Top Fuelers, Funny Cars, nitromethane, and subsonic ETs - but its character still belongs to the guy in a red plaid shirt with a half-cocked grin..."
