Nothing beats the original GT 500, even though that is a nice looking car.

this is hard to choose.
BUt I d have to say for a piece of history as there is only one left:

V8 Interceptor MAD MAX . . . the raw beauty of the film's signature car, a heavily modified, jet-black Ford Falcon 1973 XB GT hardtop.


But for a serious cruising, and muscling out Bogans/Chavs at the lights...

The 56 Chrysler 300 and 56 Studebaker Golden Hawk were the first of the true muscle cars. It was years before there was anything that would approach the performance of either of these cars.

Something like this:



70 GTO.

I don't think about Muscle cars as much anymore.
For some reason, I look for Tech, rather than CiD
Sign of the times I guess.

The next car that I will agonize over will be strictly battery powered. And it will be a few years for obvious reasons.

OK I am probably going to offend some people here, but where do they get the word muscle car from? Some of the look so fragile and dainty. Admittedly I don't know a lot about cars, but there is one car around town that I see, a BMW that I have nicknamed the playdoh car because it looks like you could smoosh it like playdoh just by looking at it to hard. I would hate to see what would happen in the event of a wreck. While I can appreciate speed and a car that handles well, the ones that look like they were made out of somethign barley stronger than tinfoil, doesn't impress me.
Then again I am a truck girl. I could totaly see myself in something like this

I think it was all about engine displacement. And a minimalist approach to getting more power.
Not through a lot of technology, but through the sheer power of Cubic inches, and perhaps a Super charger.
Pure muscle, not a lot of finesse.

Basically offering the power and performance of the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, DeTomaso, Maserati for about 1/3 the price.

Cheap power and performance was the goal.

not many Muscle Cruisers (5 year in a row champs) I would rather have or like better except maybe a custom V-Rod I saw at the Rot Rally and for various reasons, of course the budget now is more in line with Hot Wheels
not to mention having to deal with a slower bike
yes drag bars but did re-wrap the exhaust/ceramic coat and thought a little rooster near the tip would be fitting

0- feeling like Ghostrider as the blue flames shot out the loudest exhaust I've ever heard between gears at twilight (until fully warmed up)





and to "The Voice"
though it's not an actual photo but very near identical (color, year etc.) and normally always wore the hard top, buddies Saleen just could'nt find a way against this one



There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.-Ecc2

grampa had one when i was a kid and i thought it was the coolest and fastest thing in the universe
it was original gold with the turbo motor and the beautiful bird on the hood. i think my dad eventually swapped the turbo motor out for a built 400 small block.

if only i could find the prom pic of him and my mom.

Since I grew up with a dad who loved muscle cars GTOs in particular, I fell in love with the 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda convertible at a young age. A pity I will never own one of the original 100 left,
