Because besides power and strength, muscle cars also provide lots of fun and excitement, we can say that they go along with movies hand by hand, very neat and kind of natural…
Therefore it is not surprise that so many times, muscle cars have been the main protagonists or the best sidekicks of the main characters. The thrill that we get when we are watching this motion pictures is unique experience, full of pleasure that gets under the skin even to the people who are not that keen and affectionate about the fast and good looking cars.
And knowing that our readers are big aficionados for muscle cars, we decided to make a list with the best films with muscle cars we have seen on the big screen. Therefore, some very fine and sharp looking candidates are not here on our list, because they were from the TV shows and series, or were not from the category of muscle cars. But the range of muscle cars that appeared in movies is not narrow, but pretty wide, so we were forced to exclude some of them from the list, therefore we will only mention them now: 1977 Pontiac Trans Am from “Smokey and the Bandit”, 1969 Dodge “01? Charger from “The Dukes of Hazzard”, 1970-1971 Plymouth Barracuda from “Nash Bridge”. These and I’m sure many other are also someone’s dream car, but have failed to get on our list, because this is the choice for our best 10 muscle cars from the films.
1). 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 from “Bullitt”, 1968
If you like street car chasing, tire smoking, engine duels, than “Bullitt” from 1968 is the mother of them all. It is a film that set the standards for the next muscle car movies that will follow, especially those in which the main car chase action is happening on the streets of San Francisco. And the car is a story for itself. Maybe the only Ford Mustang so far that has not been modified. Under the hood of this sexy beast there is a roary and aggressive 6.4 liter V8 engine that produces 325 horsepower, with a 4 speed manual transmission and a rear wheels drive that makes it look sportier than ever. Especially in 1968, when besides bad guys, all you got to have is a determined cop like Steve McQueen and there goes the neighborhood. ..CLICK BELOW ON NEXT PAGE..READ ABOUT THE REST OF THE LEGENDARY MUSCLE CARS..
