Not if you can get a high horsepower car that still gets close to 30 on the highway and 20 in the city. IE: Corvette I know the Viper won't be around for too much longer since that thing is just a hog when it comes down to gas. Too bad, I always have wanted a Viper.

About old muscle cars, they had a lot of power, but didn't have the right "shoes" to put all that power down. throw on some micky thompsons and it's a different story.
