The east coast girls are hip- I really dig those styles they wear. The southern girls with the way they talk- they knock me out when I'm down their. The midwest farmer's daughter's really make you feel alright. And the northern girls, with the way they kiss- they make they're boyfriend's feel alright.
I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I couldn’t wait to get back in the states
Back to the cutest girls in the world
I wish they all could be California girls...
A great song by the Beach Boys.

An American muscle car; the top model of the Pontiac Firebird, produced from 1969 'til 2002. Originally an appearance package for the Firebird 400. The next year, '70, it actually improved performance. One noteworthy T/A is the 1970 Ram Air V. It was a rare, dealer-installed option that took the RA-IV engine, and added solid lifters and tunnel port heads. They were rated at 500bhp, a 130hp improvement from the RA-IV. Also noteworthy is the '73 T/A. it was the first to feature a large "Screaming Chicken" graphic on the hood. The top engine, a 310hp (net) 455ci Super-Duty V8 got the T/A going pretty fast. The T/A, and its sister, the Camaro, were killed off in '02. Thanks alot, ricer geeks! It I wanted to hot-rod a mini-van, I'd at least make it look decent!
A dude in a green Civic pulled up to me and said he wanted to race. i asked him, "what kind of mods do you have?" He replies, "a spoiler, pimped-out rims, a subwoofer in the trunk, and a cold air intake system." He asked me the same, and I said, "nothing. Just a stock, 415hp 400 cube Ram Air V8." He may have beat me off the line, but I won the race by a long-shot.
A car company, responsible for inventing:
The hardtop coupe
And I belive they also helped pioneer the limited-slip differential.
The were also some of the first cars to use 4-wheel brakes.
That applies to Dodge/Plymouth/DeSoto, too.

Originally in 1967, it took a Camaro, added a race-prepped 302 V8, power brakes (complete w/ front discs), power steering, and numerous other things. No A/C or auto transmission was available. It was designed to qualify the Camaro for the SCCA Trans Am racing series.
The 4th Gen LS1 Z/28 comes with a 310hp 5.7l V8.
An American sports car introduced in April, 1964, as part of Ford's 1965 model year line-up. Originally available in coupe and convertible styles, it later added a fastback option. Notable models include the '69-'70 BOSS models (302/429), the '65-'67 Shelby-built models (G.T.350/G.T.500), and the '69-'73 and '03-'04 Mach 1 models. The Ford Mustang underwent a major redesign in 2005. It now bares resemblance to the '68 fastback models.

1987 Buick GNX. The fastest accelerating car of the '80s. Faster than a Calloway Twin-Turbo 'Vette, a Porsche, or a Ferrari. Complete w/ high-tech, heavy-duty suspension, an a Turbo 6.
The '87 Buick just beat that '84 Porsche by half a second. Wow.
