Modern American muscle cars have some pretty distinct badges: Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, Corvette and Viper. All are high-powered and chock full of modern amenities. Vintage muscle includes those infamous badges but takes rank among many other cars that are no longer being made. Autobytel employees just can’t get enough – whether it’s old horsepower, new horsepower or something in between with simply a whole lot of horsepower, here’s a nod towards that incredible time in American car history: Detroit’s heyday.
Take the 1967 Ford Mustang that I drove in high school: it was a V6 but compared to the 2005 V6 Mustang that we use as a family car today, the ‘67 would easily get left behind at a stoplight. But it looked good. And that’s why we have the ’05 Mustang. It’s a close cousin to the original pony car, but performs a heck of a lot better.
Here are some more stories from folks at Autobytel about the American cars they love.
