Before the days of fuel efficiency ratings and airbags, there were muscle cars; the brawny spawn of Detroit car makers. Let’s face it, even though you appreciate fancy digital car technology, part of you yearns for the more primitive and powerful era when classic American muscle cars prowled the streets like predators on the hunt.
Muscles cars from the 60s and 70s are still some of the most celebrated vehicles ever made. Even the car names read like asphalt poetry: Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, GTO, Chevelle, Firebird, Boss, Rebel Machine...come on! In what other era would you ever get a legendary car name like “Super Cobra Jet?" You might be interested in these cars, but how much do you really know about these iconic coupes?
The muscle car era wasn’t concerned with safety ratings and gas efficiency. Any young American with a shred of testosterone wanted a brawny machine that could burn rubber and blast through red lights with reckless abandon. But do you really know your GTO from your GTX? And can you remember the vital differences between a Mustang and the Boss?
Put on your seat belt, crank up the Rolling Stones, sidle up alongside us at this red light, and we’ll wager your pink slip that you can’t ace our muscle car quiz. If you're ready, pound the pedal to the metal and let's roll!
