Here’s a hypothetical for y’all.

Let’s say you take an old muscle car like this mustang here. Weld in sub-frame connectors, replace the K member with a modern one, convert it to coil over suspension, retrofit a rack and pinion steering rack, and upgrade to modern disc brakes and decent tires. Oh and aluminum heads and/or block to trim the heavy nose.

My question is, after all of that. Would you have a good handling car or just a better handling car?

I know those are vague terms, but would it be something you would say

“Wow this is a great handling car!”


“Hey, this handles pretty good for a muscle car.”

kind of get my point?

Also this doesn’t have to be specific to the Mustang. I was just using that as an example.
