Simply put from Horsepower/Torque Race Perspective, Torque is the low end power of the car.

Build a motor for low end torque and it will usually take care of horsepower.

Big Blocks Often tend to be good friends with torque.
Torque is often created from an excessive stroke on big blocks, thus there non high reving attributes.
My 1968 Oldsmobile 98 Weighs 4580 and is slow as hell (off the line) but has around 500ft/pds of torque and will roast tires like no tomorrow. (thats with a 2.83 diff)
