Top 10 Majestic Classic Muscle Cars in America
Being more powerful as some of the modern monsters doesn’t mean being as cool as the classics
1963 is the year when the American muscle car category was created and produced. It was with the decision that chief John Z. DeLorean made to refresh, brighten and give life to General Motors brand. What DeLorean did was dropping Pontiac’s 389 cubic-inch big block V8 engine into its intermediate body Tempest only to defy a GM corporate restriction. The new name of this car was the already introduced name by Ferrari the1964 GTO. The Detroit manufacturers answered with a quick production of their own muscle car, where the increased the engine displacement and power to numbers that previously had been hard to imagine. These cars were more massive huger, more capacious, larger, more dominant and impressive more dynamic and more effective than the pony car category triggered by the presentation of the Ford Mustang Cars like the Mustang, Camaro and Firebird. This was so because these new cars had longer wheelbase and tremendous sizable mass gave the rear wheels better traction on take-off. The things and situations that calmed down the contest finally were the rising price of the gas and of the insurance costs as well and not to forget the government pollution restrictions. Nowadays we respectfully keep the era of muscle cars wars in mind and we are amazed of the breathtaking numbers they still bring at classic car auctions.
