DO YOU AGREE? The BEST & FASTEST Muscle Cars of All Times!

American muscle cars are definitely rare (I would dare to say UNIQUE) specimens amongst the sports cars in the entire world – fact well known also to the Europeans besides their superb sports cars – and therefore it is absolutely necessary to treat them with special approach and emotions.

Muscle Cars

So we came on the idea to make a list by our own free choice, a sort of ranking of the famous muscle cars, based on our personal experience and preference (also we have taken the opinion of several other eminent car magazines like the Muscle Car Review Magazine, Autoblog and others) of the very cream of American technology and car manufacturing.  Also we seriously have taken to an account test results and other measurement attributes.

    The list is a bit one-sided. 6 GM products, 3 Chrysler’s, and 1 Ford. The 6 GM are 3 Corvettes; 2 Chevy’s; and 1 Buick. The 3 Chrysler’s are all Plymouths. And the lonely Ford wasn’t a viable option to the public at the time unless you had the cash for it. Same thing for the Corvettes; those were not easy to obtain for the everyman. The Plymouths were a readily accessible as was the Camaro, Chevelle, and Buick.
    My list:
