    Now ad this to your poll and you might see some folks that UNDERSTAND horsepower and torque speak up...:thumbsup:

    And YES, when I retire I would LOVE to rebuild one of these and pull an RV with it....just to pi$$ off young Tacoma drivers in the left lane :)

    View the build. Too much to list.
    I wouldn't consider any of those muscle cars. They are sports cars, just like the imports that go 180mph+ are super cars. The muscle car I want is a 69 Camaro SS, but who doesn't want one.

    Sorry Bud,

    But the list of cars in this poll was made 5 years ago. Counting today's 5.0 Mustang, the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are most definitely musclecars. They all come from the factor with 400+ hp motors and are legitimate high 12- low13 second cars bone stock right down to the airfilter. Furthermore, there is nothing sporty about a Challenger.

    The 60's cars are all ill handling slow POSs compared to the modern cars today. Hell, the automatic V6 Mustang of today could probably out-dyno a 69 Camaro SS and also smoke it on the 1/4 strip as well.

    I hate to say I agree but, sadly, for the most part I do. I've always been a muscle car fan and have had some very nice, very fast cars. But, driving my son's 2011 Subaru WRX, which is nothing special (stock with a few mods but nothing outrageous) I'm amazed with the power they can make fom a 'lil 4 cylinder turbo'd motor. And, handling -- forget it.

    The only problem I see is that I pass six of them on my way to anywhere while there aren't that many '69 Camaros crawling around. And, the power is just "different". When I stand on my 396, you definitely feel violent, raw, semi out of control power. With his all-wheel-drive turbo, it's just this steady, very controlled power. In a 1/4 mile, I'd be challenged to get the Camaro to hook-up without slicks and he'd probably dust me. Is his car a "muscle car"? Nope. But it's fast as hell and handles like it's on rails.

    Just my humble opinion...
