Muscle and Pony Cars

What is a muscle car?
Muscle cars are big, loud, American-made, two-door coupes with big, loud powerful engines (often a V-8 or larger) like the following iconic versions:

1. 1969 Dodge Charger
2. Plymouth Barracuda
3. 1967 Pontiac GTO
4. Chevrolet Nova
5. Oldsmobile 442
6. Plymouth Roadrunner
7. Ford Shelby Cobra Mustang
8. 1969 Camaro ZL1 (’69)
9. Buick GSX
10. 1970 Ford Boss 302 Mustang

Muscle cars encompasses the ethos and aesthetic of the mid-to-late 1960s and early 1970s when body types and power trains were getting larger and more aggressive. The resulting vehicles were designed to burn out along a straight strip, to intimidate, to roar.

While the ancestor of the classic muscle car was introduced as far back as the late 1940s, the modern definition refers to cars like the Dodge ChargerCharger and Challenger, the Plymouth Fury and Barracuda, Chevrolet Nova and Camaro, Pontiac GTO, Ford Torino and Mustang among others, although the 'Stang’s presence on this list can be controversial. (The poor Pony car, beloved by buyers, looked down upon by so many who hate it’s pretty curves and it’s universal appeal).

Muscle cars listed for sale on RacingJunk.com include all of the above makes and models in their classic 20th century variations, as well as the modern iterations, some of which even hark back to those days of bold power, poor turning radius, and killer attitude. Muscle cars are often daily drivers for those looking to get their kicks on the morning commute, but are even more satisfying on the drive from Christmas tree to finish line on a sleek, narrow straight. Or even better, on both, when owners run their GTOs to the office Monday-Friday, then head to the drag strip on Saturday morning.
