The Death and Rebirth of American Muscle Cars

Ever since their debut in the 1930's, American muscle cars had been going strong, enticing youths and experienced drivers alike. However, this all changed in the mid-1970's. Government interference and industry regulations restricted the market, and many thought that beautiful, powerful muscle cars were a thing of the past. After a few final great vehicles, muscle cars faded away from the picture.

A new law made in the mid-1970's outlawed auto racing, and along with the rising gas prices caused by trade regulations, a new stage had been set -- a stage that saw many buyers turning to smaller, more fuel-efficient street cars.

But muscle cars were not dead for good. Manufacturers changed their Ford and GM ushered in the new age, with competing pony cars made on the cutting-edge of tech to outsell each other. These first cars were the 1982 Mustang G2, and GM's third-gen Chevy Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. The Mustang featured a new 302-cid V8 motor, which set the industry standard for acceleration and speed, while the Camaro was one of the most popular Indy 500 pace cars of its decade.

Regardless of whatever other inventions are coming to revolutionize the car industry, one thing is for certain: though they have had their rough patches, American muscle cars are here to stay.
