24 Muscle Cars For Every Gearhead’s Wish List

Muscle cars are as American as apple pie (even if the Aussies built some cool ones, too), and from the mid-’60s to the early ’70s, carmakers were locked in a battle to see who could make the fastest and most powerful models. While they used to be affordable, at least compared to imported performance cars, today, all the most iconic muscle cars come with ridiculous price tags. Most of the ones we’ve picked are from the Golden Era, but we’ve included some of the most outrageous modern models and a handful of pony cars. 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona / 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Superbird Image Credit ..read more

The Coolest Muscle Car From the Year You Were Born (1964–2004)

Muscle cars are uniquely American, and once they were introduced in the 1960s, they soon took over the automotive scene. Unfortunately, the oil crisis in the early 1970s ruined the fun for gearheads. However, manufacturers still produced some cool cars, even if they were down on power. There’s certainly no shortage of cool muscle cars, and choosing just one from each year wasn’t simple. We have included pony cars, and since the muscle car was pretty much dead for a while, we’ve gone with top-spec versions of malaise-era models. 1964: Pontiac GTO Image Credit: Greg Gjerdingen / Wiki Commons.
