UCSD has a class on musclecars! Asst. Prof Seth Cohen teaches it once a week for 10 weeks.


I can't find anything on the internet about the article in Muscle Car Review, Dec '08, pg 88-89 . So you might want to get ahold of a copy quick and read it for all the details. Robert Genat photographed and wrote the article of this May event.

Sometimes the internet is a let down when you are trying to find more info on an event.

Anyway, Asst. Prof. Seth Cohen http://checohen0.ucsd.edu/SethCohen.htm who is a '73 Mach 1 conv owner, (and knows more about chemistry than anyone I'll ever hear about,) took an opportunity the UCSD offered to come up with one unit seminar courses that would get fulltime freshman integrating with college life and faculty, and came up with a class on musclecars, the past era they personify, the retro swing of modern cars, the booming musclecar market, the similarities of the past and present musclecar eras and doubtlessly... other stuff.
http://sdmustangclub.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=423 mentions that the muscle car owners enjoyed interacting with the students too. Who wouldn't?

I received an email back (Thanks!) from Asst. Prof. Cohen and it's good and not-so-good news "Thanks for your kind comments. I probably will offer the class again, but not for another year or so (perhaps 2010, this is because I am on sabbatical this year)." and a the photos you see here of the 68 Road Runner and the Gt 351 Mustang ( I don't know either)
