Look, it was the 70s. Things were different back then. Perhaps the world was an easier place, too. And yes, things were good.

So it wouldn’t make any sense to have a new smartphone called the “Roadrunner.” Doesn’t make any sense. But for a muscle car with lots of horsepower, the Roadrunner name is absolutely perfect.
