Stirling Moss’ Shelby GT350 Mustang on the track | Bob Heathcote /Mazda Raceway

Carroll Shelby’s performance skill was already well-known to Ford when the automaker asked him to work his magic on its new sporty compact, the Mustang, to make the car formidable in competition.

So just one year after the Mustang’s debut, the 1965 Shelby GT350 roared onto the scene, immediately racking up successes in SCCA road-racing events and winning three consecutive national championships. The GT350 also became known for its unbridled power and handling on back roads for those drivers lucky enough to obtain one.

One of two Sam Posey-driven Trans-Am 1970 Dodge Challengers heads to auction


It was untested, prone to engine failure, and largely unpredictable in turns, but at least its body held together better than its acid-dipped sister car. The #76 1970 Dodge Challenger also finished two of its four Trans-Am races in the points, helping Dodge nudge past rival Plymouth for fourth place in the season standings. While that ultimately mattered little at the time, it may help the Challenger when it comes up for auction next year. - See more at: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2014/11/10/one-of-two-sam-posey-driven-trans-am-1970-dodge-challengers-heads-to-auction/?refer=news#sthash.46OPTgSv.dpuf

One for our own "Dick'...

A Name You'll Never Forget
Most Powerful Brass Era Car, pre-1916
1907-1908 Apperson Big Dick, 96hp


For those with $15,000 to spend, Apperson would put their race engine in a 50hp Jackrabbit runabout to create the Big Dick. A 96hp racing runabout, the Big Dick actually had the highest advertised horsepower in an American automobile through 1914. It had open exhaust and a 6 1/4-inch bore and 5 1/2-inch stroke, for 675-cu.in. Amazingly, the company sold 15 of them, and that in the face of competition from Locomobile's own $15,000 short stroke 990.1-cu.in., 90hp Cup Racer (the factory claimed 120hp for the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup car upon which it was based).

A snippet from:

Top Ten Most Powerful Classics
Feature Article from Hemmings Classic Car
April, 2012 - David Traver Adolphus

When it comes to American performance cars, some of these are not those you would expect to see included on any Top Ten list. For the most part, we surprised ourselves with the results. They're the most powerful, all right--it's just that if you're familiar with the Porters and Buffums of the world, or even a 400hp Mercury, then you're among a minority. In fact, there was a special word for high-horsepower cars in the Brass Era: freaks.
