Keep in mind that we’re not asking about a generational choice or even just a specific year model. We want a specific year, make, model, and trim. All of you who were about to skip to the bottom to start typing “the 5th gen…” can take a few more moments to give this QOTD some thought. The options are clearly vast.
The 1968 Dodge Charger R/T
Ford just released what could end up being the very last new-generation Mustang with a V8 heartbeat. We’re almost certain that it’ll be the last of the mainstream muscle cars with one as Dodge is about to discontinue the Challenger and the Camaro seems to have an even bleaker fate.
We get the feeling that quite a few of you would prefer a simpler setup. Perhaps it’s something from the golden era of muscle cars in the 1960s and 1970s when gas was cheap and the amount of horsepower under the hood was often considerably more than the factory reported.
The 1987 Buick GNX
Still though, we’re sure that a number of you will choose something from between now and back then. Serious muscle cars that bridged the gap from the gas crisis onward were special not just because they were fast but because they were rare. For many years neither Dodge nor Chevrolet even produced a muscle car of any ilk.
Maybe your choice is something that was innovative like the Buick GNX, the Shelby Mustang GT350, or the AMC AMX. Let us know what your choice is in the comments below!
