I've got a 68 Barracuda Notchback that's awaiting a long overdue restoration. Needs everything from the rockers down.

I've had a C-10. Loved that thing, looking into getting another one, or a 66 Chevelle.

American + V8 + RWD

I think the Vagons qualify, along with the likes of the Chevrolet SS, Charger SRT & up.

So not a car counts?

Here is another one of my trucks. Unfortunately the most recent picture is it parked next to another project that will never be finished. The last picture I have of it together is prefixed dsc, which means it was a borrowed sony handicam before I got a digital camera.



I bought it with the 429 already in it, but it was a 70's hot rod and I've since modernized some things over the years.
mid 70's 429 heads changed out for dove heads
manifolds changed to headers.
power steering conversion with a Toyota steering box
4 wheel disk brakes with a power booster from a late 70's ford truck
Went from 1 wheel wonder with 4.11 gears (it would spin into 3rd) to a lsd with 3.50's. I also added gt350 style traction bars at that time.

Currently what is taking forever is re doing the bed. It was used as a truck and it shows. I'm also putting mini tubs in to get a little more tire in the back. It's still been out of commission for longer than is reasonable for the work being done though.

Originally, "muscle cars" were intermediate-size vehicles with larger engine options-- Chargers, Road Runners, Fairlanes, Chevelles, GTOs, etc.
The Mustangs, Camaros, Javelins and Challengers were all "pony cars" based on compact-size chassis.

Now, the Vagons, SS and Chargers qualify as muscle cars. I'm not sure about the Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers, which are now built on chassis shared with larger-than-compact sedans...

what's interesting is that back in the day (which was a wednesday) i'd always think of a muscle car as having 2-drs as well... nowadays there are super sedans or rebodied cars like the Charger and Malibu which have become sedans...

As an overall package, the Germans know their way around a V8 sedan.

For the sake of raw power ... there's no missing the Dodge Demon / Hellcat. They're absolute monsters from factory.

you can get nice discounts on them. Especially from the dealer I use.

But really...$70k is a bargain. That car competes with $100k performance SUVs.

Yeah, it probably feels this level of refinement. I suppose that's why we don't call them muscle cars. Although, I have heard that comparison when comparing a Viper and a Corvette. The C7s is just so sophisticated it's just not the stereotypical muscle car like the Viper.
