It stands to reason that not every example of a 40-something-year-old car will perform in exactly the same way, but the 390 makes 265bhp - at least mine does, now I've finally had the proper-sized carb fitted - which means 0-60 is over in 6.2 seconds and top speed is a smokey-stirring 130mph. But, above all else, it's about kicking back and letting the whole blue-collar, Saturday night, bar stools 'n' jukeboxes experience wash over you. Even the rear-view mirror is in widescreen format and turns the world vanishing behind into a movie.
