You know the name of first muscle car? It was the Pontiac GTO, of course. Right? Depends on who you ask.

The 300s were a performance car to be sure, but by definition it is not a Muscle Car. A case can be made for the Buick Specials of the mid thirties as they got the big 8s from the full sized Buick in a mid sized car.
