Top Muscle Cars - American Muscle


What is the greatest muscle car of all time?

Geez, that seemed like such a straightforward question when we asked it on Facebook. We quickly learned that it isn’t.

I vote for the 1970 Buick GSX


71 HEMI 'Cuda but I’d prefer to live with a 71 440 Road Runner.


Once again, a Muscle Car is by definition a mid size car with a full size car engine. Mustangs, Camaros, Firebirds, 'Cudas, Challengers, Cougars and Javelins are not muscle cars by definition they are Pony Cars and since the question is about Muscle Cars all of them are out! Picking a best is a matter of personal taste unless you are going to come up with some sort of criteria to judge them by. That being the case I vote for the 1965 Z/16 Chevelle. Also, not all Pony Cars are Performance Cars since a 6 cyl. Mustang is still a Pony Car.
