This from John C who lived in Bloomington MN at the time of his story. Thanks for the story John.
When I turned 16 I bought a 71 Plymouth Satellite Sebring. Paid $700 for it with paper route money and a small loan from my dad. Mild 318 with a Carter carb with a sticky automatic choke. Other than driving with the air cleaner cover upside down, I did nothing to boost the performance. I did, however, buy aluminum slots for the front and chrome rims with baby moons in the back, sporting off-brand 60s with raised white letters, of course. I learned the wonderful world of Bondo. I had it painted Rallye Red at Maaco and did the interior myself in leopard skim cloth I bought at the fabric store. Leopard skin on the dash, the back deck, the sun visors and on the seats, secured by Dritz twist pins. I jacked it up using leaf spring extender lift kits. Leaving Bridgemans Drive-in one night, I was pulled over by a Richfield cop, who broke out the measuring tape and found I was jacked up too high. Getting that fix it ticket was a point of pride which I showed off to my friends. Then I lowered the car a notch to satisfy the gendarmes. My friend Curt had a 68 Mustang GT 390, Doug had a 73 Fury, Steve had a 54 Chrysler New Yorker, Terry has access to his parents' Gremlin, and Hornhead had a project V8 Vega constantly under construction in the garage. Jeff had a 74 Dart with Keystone Klassics, a fresh paint job, a kick ass stereo, and headers which were a bitch to put in.
The 1970s and 1960s were truly good days for the American automobile industry with popular brands such as Pontiac, Ford, and Chevy among others ruling the street and the race track. However, there is a new breed of super-fast muscle cars from the 2010s that are irresistible. Here they are;
2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat – 204 Mph
With a 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, this four-door sedan is currently ruling the streets with an impressive 0-60 of 3.4. Thanks to its aerodynamic nature, this machine is both fuel efficient and very fast.
2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
Termed as the most powerful production muscle car of all time, this machine packs an impressive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. This allows it to sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.5 topping at 199 mph.
2014 Shelby GT500
This is a brutally fast car packing 662 horsepower and 631-pound feet of torque. This machine can do 0 – 60 in 3.5. Its sleek monster design is also impressive.
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – 195 Mph
As the baddest of the Camaro lineup, this beat looking machine packs 650 horsepower and 650-pound feet of torque.
2015 Equus Bass 770
This rare hand built machine is a blend of all that makes a muscle car great. It makes 0 to 60 in 3.4 packing 640 horsepower and 605-pound feet of torque. Only 250 have been made.
It’s common for people to refer to any rear-wheel drive American performance car with a V8 as a ‘muscle car’, but is that always the case? Some would have you believe that ‘pony car’ is in many instances a more appropriate description. Since this is probably the lesser-known term, let’s look at its history.
