My favorite Muscle Car; the one that drilled its way into my memory bank way back then... has to be my bro-in-law's '70 Challenger T/A. He was dating my sister, and they took me, and his little bro (who was my age) in his T/A to the drive-in to see "Vanishing Point". What a kool movie! What a kool ride home after the movie!

I did up this Revell metal body kit of the VP car, using the mill from the '71 Charger.


Probably not exact, but nice enough for my shelf.




Of course, finding some bumper guards and a rear-view would help.

Mopars are favorite, but all of them, (including pony) were the coolest cars from the coolest time, I graduated in '70, none of us had much $$, but our high school parking lot had some really cool rides (including a couple of bikes) that are priceless today.

Although this is not a photo of my actual car, it's pretty close. My favorite was my 1966 Chevelle SS 396 Super Sport that I purchased in 1969 in my senior year of high school. Mine was just like this one, Cameo Beige, except mine had the code 6 Beige vinyl top, which was a little darker than the paint. 4 speed Muncie trans, console, bucket seats, same hubcaps...man I loved that car! I later made many mods to this car including transplanting a 427 bored .030 over into it. The new engine had L-88 heads that were worked on by a local guy, a Crane roller cam setup, an Edelbrock tunnel ram with twin Holley 600 center shooters, Hooker Headers into 2 1/2" straight pipes into Corvair Turbo mufflers. Rear gear was 4.11 posi. I made some homemade ladder bars for the rear. What a great car that was and I kick my self in the butt all the time for ever selling it! As they say, Hindsight is 20-20!

First and second-generation Dodge Chargers, although I like almost anything Chrysler.

Buick GS

Olds 4-4-2

Pontiac Tempest/Le Mans with the OHC Six Sprint package. Even if it's not a V8, don't try to tell me it's not a muscle car. Even with the 1-bbl., they were plenty quick.

R4 Studebaker Hawks and Avantis.

AMC Javelins and Rebels.

My favorite muscle car lives in my garage....

1968 Barracuda 340 Formula S


When all six barrels open up, you better be pointed where you wanna be....


I love the 4 Spd. w/ bench


This might seem cocky, but there's too many check-book muscle car "enthusiasts" here on Long Island.

They buy someone else s work and call it their own.
