The Accord V6 Coupe Is the Last Real American Muscle Car
This is not a joke.
Here’s a question to occupy an evening at the cruise-in or the garage or the campground: Which car deserves the title of “first American muscle car”? Was it the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88, which also inspired the first rock-n’-roll song? The Chrysler 300? The Impala SS? Or was it the infamous 1964 Pontiac GTO, the first car to break the General Motors policy preventing big-bore V-8s in mid-size sedans? You can make a very solid argument for any of the above, not to mention several other legitimate contenders like the “Max Wedge” Dodge Dart.
Well, I don’t claim to know what the first American muscle car was, but I can absolutely tell you what the last one currently for sale is. It’s the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V6 with the six-speed manual transmission. Save your angry letters and Facebook comments until the end, particularly if you don’t know how to spell each and every one of the words you’re planning to use, because I’m going to convince you beyond the shadow of a doubt on this topic.
