I completely agree. But I missed the boat with true muscle being born at the tail end of the seventies. So, when I hit that age all I could afford was a mini Mopar. It's not the same but the technology is there to get the power to the wheels in a four banger if it's done right. I sunk a lot of money into my Neon to get it to break 300 horsepower. It was fun to do once.
