The SS and an SS/1LE would be a race. I think either of the current Z's will beat it handily.

Then again this is just my uneducated/slightly informed opinion...

that's what I said: race cars are race cars, they are a different breed

I'm responding, in much of that thing I posted, to this:

"Technology has advanced so much that race cars of yesteryear can be outperformed by mundane street cars today. Modern track focused car will annihilate anything from 1969.
"

That's a thing that I think can be very true, but it is not an automatic thing
