Too bad average joe can barely afford one, or in many cases cant. In 1970 when the Chevrolet beast was the LS6 chevelle it was about a 3600 dollar car. Minimum wage was about 1.60 an hour then. Thats 2250 hours of work to pay for the car. Nowadays Minimum wage is 7.25 an hour and the cost of the top performing camaro is well above 40k. Your 7.25 wage when applied to the previous 2250 hours required to pay for the chevelle comes up to less than 17k.

Yes, the cars are faster but the average joe that used to buy them cant afford to anymore.
