what's a muscle car???

Muscle Car- a car with high horsepower usually from the late 60's and 70's. (but maybe you were being sarcastic, i cant tell.)

The most manly cars you can drive legally.

I got a '91 Camaro RS with a crate 350 in it. Used to be a police state patrol vehicle here. However I'm lookin for an '85-92 formula firebird.

I'm an F-body slut.

However, my dream muscle car would be a blown over Charger or Challenger, or of course, the infamous Hemi Cuda... Mmmmmmm.....

Yeah well I got a Honda Accord, bitches.

I used to own an 86 Mustang LX with a supercharged 302 and a Tremec TKO trans. She was a beast, but at 16 its was way too much car for me. 600hp and 10 second 1/4's would have probably gotten me killed so its a good thing I sold it. But I had fun while I had it.

nice dude. on this i was going more for restoration and not as much power becasue me and my grandpa are building a 32 ford with a supercharged 454 and some high performance aluminum heads
#19
Damn, you'll have to get some pics of that Ford. Sounds like a sweet car. My uncle has a 43 Ford truck. Its beat to hell but its still one of the most beautiful vehicles I have ever seen.

Where do you find these cars? I think it'd be a pretty awesome thing to do, but I:
1) don't have a car
2) don't have a garage
3) don't have any tools
4) wouldn't know what to do if I had any of the above
5) have no money
#21
When I get my next muscle car, Im hitting junk yards. I can do most of the body and powertrain work, but I will have to get someone to do an interior for me. I think if your wanting to totally do a frame off restoration, junk yards are a good place to start.

2) use a friends??
3) buy lots of tools or make good friends with someone that has some
4) make good friends with someone that does
5) i cut grass and worked in my dads shop and didnt buy anything for myself

EDIT: o yes ^^ deffinatley junk yards.

Well I'm in college so I don't have any money or free time anyway. Well, I have some money, but definitely not $5,000. Also, I can't have a car on campus because I'm a freshman, and all my friends who live off campus have apartments so they don't have garages. I guess this will be something I have to put off a few years.

hey threadstarter that's a beautiful ride. I'm just wondering about the fuel consumption of it, I mean doesn't it have like 20L/100km?
