Nearly every auto enthusiast looks at yesteryear and thinks just how awesome it would be to see some classic icons make a comeback today. Many of these cars relied on huge V-8 engine, fuel-dumping four-barrel carburetors, and low-restriction exhausts to produce their power, which ultimately aided in their death once emission regulations crept in.
We looked into the past and laid out the 10 classic cars that we’d love to see make a comeback in the modern era.
The Chevelle was Chevy’s most popular midsize muscle car in the 1960s and 1970s. This is precisely why you see it in bulk at nearly every classic car show. Even in my family is a fully restored and modified `66 Chevelle SS. The Chevelle was the perfect combination of power and agility in its heyday, but like all Muscle cars, the emission regulations of the 1970s turned it into an underpowered pig.
Chevrolet has the means to revive the Chevelle today, but it would need to do so carefully, and not make it little more than an imported Holden, a la the Pontiac GTO and Chevy SS. It’s doubtful that this will happen any time soon, but it has been on the radar for many years.
