8. 1969 C3 Corvette ZL1
Back in the day, displacement was king. Displacement meant horsepower, and when you had a 7.0L V8 under the hood you basically had an entire stampede at the command of your right foot.
In 1969, a Corvette could be optioned out with a massive V8 engine which was listed at 430 hp. Many believe that horsepower rating was a bit too conservative, with rumors flying around that the engine made 100 hp more than it was listed at. In the end the ZL-1 was a serious performance machine that could terrorize the drag strip.
