The Boss Mustang had one of the most dominant wins of Round 1, but it could not keep up with the 1969 Dodge Charger’s firepower in this Sweet 16 match-up. The ‘69 Charger is one of America’s most popular muscle cars, but it will still be considered an underdog against the iconic 1963 Split Window Corvette in Round 3.

  1. The Coupe will romp in.
    A man is a man
    who will fight with a sword
    or conquer Mt Everest in snow
    but the bravest of all
    owns a 32′ Ford
    and tries for six thousand in low
