The Muscle Car Thread

I'm guessing that we have a few gear heads here on the forum. Well, how about sharing some of your favorite vehicles from the muscle car era (I score that as 1955 - 1973).

 

Here are a few of my favorites that I would some day love to own.

 

1967 Corvette Stingray 427 - There are few muscle cars that have more swagger than this bad ass. :haz:

1963 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty. One of the more wicked sleepers to hit the street.

In my eyes, this is the last true muscle car ever produced.

 

1973 Pontiac Trans Am 455 Super Duty. The 455 SD was also produced in 74, but with less horsepower. :(

This is the car that brought the small block V-8 to the masses.

 

1955 Chevy

When equipped with the 426 Hemi, this Mopar was one bad m***********. :fury:

One of the tougher offerings from Ford, the 1964 Ford Galaxy Thunderbolt. Lighter than the regular Galaxy, with a 427 ci V-8.

In 1970, GM lifted it's ban on engines larger than 400 ci in their intermediate cars. The result?

What happens when you put a Ford 427 ci engine in a small AC Cobra? How about 0-100-0 in 14 seconds. :haz:

I have a soft spot for the '73-74 Roadruner GTX, in 1973 a Roadrunner equiped with the 440V8 earned the GTX badge.

Another 429 just for the hell of it...

The 429s weren't very fast. The 428 cobra jet, is the one you wanted.
