A muscle car is any vehicle, typically from the 1940s-1970s that follows one basic formula: a mid-sized or compact car with a larger motor than nessicary to motivate the car. There are many misconceptions about the muscle car, very typically seen in this day and age. among them:
-muscle cars are not, in fact, only from the narrow period between approximatly 1965-1971.
-the typical muscle car was made for no other purpose than going very fast in a straight line. short of spending a fortune in upgrades, a muscle car will NOT pull .8 G's on the skidpad, put down any notable numbers on the slalom or figure 8, or achieve anything but a fast ET.
-assuming muscle cars can easily romp so-called "import cars". in 9 out of 10 cases, a muscle car will easily be outdone by all tests by a new car except possibly the quarter mile. This is NOT because the muscle cars are slow, inefficent, or any other nonsense. the simple fact is, these cars are fossils, some over 40 years old. technology has made many leaps and bounds in those last 40 years, so it would be shameful if a new car could not beat a muscle car.
-All in all, muscle cars are very cool cars, that in my personal opinion, look better than many of the new cars today. the mythos surrounding them today does nothing more than slander them, and even further skyrocket thier price, which is CERTAINLY not nessicary. so please people, only view them for what they are: cool, old, quarter mile stormers.
poor little uninformed person #1: YO MAN, MY '70 CHEVELLE WITH A HYDRA-MATIC AND A 350 WILL KICK THAT STI's ASS!!!
friend: dont embarress yourself man. even with a top-of-the-line muscle car, such as a 427 cobra jet mustang with a 4 speed, youd still get thrashed. hes got almost 40 years of high tech on you. just be content that your car looks a hell of a lot better than his little anonymous little box, no matter how many LEDs or plastic bits he puts on it.

First off
if you say that muscle cars are stupid, slow, crappy, redneck cars, or technologically inferior you are a total jackass and you need to go get into your honda civic with the body kit and the huge fin that makes it look like it can go over 110 and go drive off a cliff. Skylines, NSX's etc are acceptable cars but are still pieces of shit in comparison to most muscle cars. Your car sounds like shit, probably because i can go down and buy a soda bottle that holds more than the entire motor of your "hi performance" car.
A muscle car is a real mans car. in order to better understand this lets go into the definition of "man"
a man is a male human being with balls and a dick.
if you dont have the balls to drive a real car then dont try to soup it up to make you feel like you actually are adequate in bed, you arent
real mens cars are muscle cars (PREFERABLY fords but any american made high horsepower vehicle is elligable.)
if its made in japan
its a piece of shit
and if you dont have respect for americans because our cars "suck" then move to fucking japan, cuz no one wants you here.
You are a ricing little bitch, 1.6 liters??? my soda holds more than that. Hell, i can piss more than that. The 11th commandment is there is no substitute for cubic inches, so go get a clue you little bitches. you show me a japanese car with over 2000 horsepower and then we'll talk. There are several muscle cars that have made that much and even more so go suck a fat one.
YOU ARE BITCHES

A type of high-performance vehicle.
Contrary to popular belief, the first muscle car was not the Pontiac GTO, but the Chevrolet Impala SS 409, introduced in 1962. The GTO, however, started the muscle car revolution upon its launch in 1964. Most muscle cars were simply spiced-up versions of other, more ordinary models. Most muscle cars were mid-sized. The Ford Mustang introduced a more compact-sized type of muscle car called the pony car, or "pocket msucle car."
The muscle car era ended in the 70s due to increased safety standards(goddamned Ralph Nader!), increased emission standards(goddamned EPA!), and the 1973-1974 Middle East oil embargo(goddamned Arabs!). The Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am pony cars survived, albeit in a watered-down state.
In the 1980s, muscle cars began making a comeback that continues to this day.
The Pontiac Tempest was an ordinary car, but installing a high-performance engine made it a muscle car.

Late 60's and Early 70's American performance cars, which had big displacement, high horsepower motors, and sleeper or stock look to them. Not to be confused with riceburners, 99% of which have a stock 120 horsepower SOHC 4 banger, with a huge spoiler on a FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CAR (morons), non color matching ridiculous body kits, an exhaust bigger than the engine (and sounds like a fat fuck farting non-stop after eating chilidogs) and paint jobs that might seem cool to a pre-schooler.
Did you see those rusty looking muscle cars that beat the ridiculous looking riceburners at the racetrack? Get used to it!
