What are Classic American Muscle cars?

A term used for 2-door midsize high performance, affordable American cars with big V8 engines from the ’60s and ’70s. Very high-powered machines. Designed and manufactured by the Big Three (Chrysler, GM, and Ford). Racing cars that can be used on the street.

Which is the best Muscle Car?

This is a very subjective question. Are we talking about the best engine, most powerful, best performing, best handling, best looking, or the fastest car? Because everyone can have their own opinion on what “the best”, can mean. Ask this question to 20 different people and you will get 20 different answers.

The First American Muscle Car.

In the early ’60s. Pontiac wanted to market their cars to younger performance-oriented buyers. So, they decided to fit their full-size model engine into their mid-size cars. They installed the bigger 389 cubic inch engine into the Tempest they sold and marketed it as the “GTO” Package. All the other American automakers quickly followed. They also started to manufacture mid-size cars with larger engines. And so, the Muscle car era began.

Types of Muscle Cars.

In the late ’60s, at the peak of the Muscle Car Era. To attract the younger performance-minded customers. The Big Three tried to surpass each other by producing more powerful and faster cars. They came up with many models of muscle cars. They offered performance and styling packages to creating muscle car models in their Mid-Size, Compact, and Pony Car. To attract as many diverse customers as possible. They even created Full-Size Muscle Cars.
