Thank you, Mr. Shelby:

And 80s muscle car is an oxymoron. I love Mustangs. Own one. But the Fox body style rapes your eyes.

An insult to Muscle Cars. That's much more aptly labeled a 2+2 GT, a totally different design philosophy.

Lots of beautiful American automobiles in this thread that dont even come close to the Muscle Car label.

Just sold mine to a guy in Johnson City TN. My eyes were watering as he drove it out of my driveway. But there was no way I could haul 3 youngins around in it, and figured it was time to get a family car. So I bought this...

And put this gem on the front of it!

I have one... A 65 convertible with a small block in it... Not in great shape though... It was my grandads... Bone stock... Gonna keep it original as much as i can. A project for the future.

lucky you. I'd love to do one of those big cars. Bel Airs, Impalas, and early Chevelle/Malibu/GTO are all great cars with plenty of muscle for me, and plenty of room for whatever.

I know what a muscle car is and calling a GT40 a muscle car is a slap in the face. We need to change the thread to car porn. That'll settle it.

Well, if you guys were gonna pepper this thread with crappy ass 80s "muscle cars" I was gonna go the other direction. :)

Like it or not the fox body was a "muscle car" of it's time. The Camaro went through a similar stage. Both weren't attractive. Both had to potential to go like stink.

Sadly a lot of those late 60's and early 70's "muscle cars" weren't really very fast... yeah they had torgue and sound, but not much else.

A lot of the little import 4 bangers that aren't really even "sports" cars can run with them now.
