2010-10-26 09:02:00
If you are a fan of Chrysler’s HEMI engine, the number 392 would drum up some very special emotions. While we now know modern HEMI culture exists largely as a brand name only, there’s nothing like a limited edition Dodge Challenger to play history teacher once again for seeing a forerunner to the muscle car era. Accepting that the actual ...

Los muscle cars triunfarán este año - los aficionados a las carreras opinan
2009-02-16 03:10:00
Más de 2.000 norteamericanos aficionados a las carreras fueron encuestados por el Sema -Specialty Equipment Market Association- lanzando unos interesantes resultados sobre qué dirección podría tomar el mercado norteamericano (referente en el aftermarket) a pesar de la crisis que afecta a la industria.Una cuarta parte de los preguntados explicaron que en el 2009 seguirán participando en eventos racing y relacionados con el automovilismo, cifras similares a las que se obtuvieron el año pasado.Segmentando a los encuestados por el tipo de coche se pueden encontrar similitudes dentro del grupo y estudiar separadamente las tendencias que pueden seguir. Por ejemplo, los propietarios de vehículos made in USA son ligeramente más mayores que los que conducen marcas japonesas y coreanas, pero más jovenes que los que poseen coches europeos. Esto, que puede atribuirse a que los vehículos europeos tienen un precio inicial mayor, también podria explicar una mayor bajada de los accesorios para marc...

Gene Winfield's Lost Muscle Cars
2008-05-07 07:01:00
While reviewing David Grant's new book, "The Legendary Custom Cars and Hot Rods of Gene Winfield," for the Hemmings e-Weekly this week, I came across several photos of muscle cars in the book, which struck me as odd, if only because Winfield is most well-known for his customs and hot rods. Neit
Americans and Muscle Cars By Mudkipz Cdmanuals
2008-05-05 11:26:00
It's quite hard to deny how muscle cars seem to be a standard part in the classic American culture. Muscle cars are often seen to be the epitome of rebellion and freedom – hence, it was widely embraced by the people, regardless of whether it was a necessity or not.The 1960s was an integral part in the history of muscle cars. It was when these powerful beauties were the biggest thing to hit America. Nobody needed such a powerful car but everybody wanted it. Marketing and promotion went a long way for muscle cars – they were expensive and more often than not, only the upper echelons of society could afford them. People of lesser financial standing chose to buy the muscle cars' lesser-powered cousins just because the latter still looked like muscle cars.Automobile makers were of course forced to make their respective muscle cars what it really should be: fast and powerful. It was a competition between big car companies – who could make their cars stronger and who could market them be...

2008-04-02 18:59:00
On April 2-6, the DFW Metroplex spotlight will shine brightly on the Dallas Convention Center when the Dallas Auto Show comes to town. “Last year, more than 385,000 auto enthusiasts visited the Dallas Auto Show, proof that our ‘love affair’ with the automobile is alive and well,” said Kurt Fegraeus, 2008 Dallas Auto Show chairman. “The Dallas Auto Show really is a ‘must see’ event. The consumer has the greatest of opportunities to view all the latest and greatest of every manufacturer, all under one roof. If someone is shopping for the perfect car to buy, this is the ultimate time to compare everything on their shopping list. And, this year, we are not only welcoming ‘repeat visitors’ to the Show, but we would like to entice new showgoers to experience everything the Show has to offer as well. We believe it will be a headline-worthy event.”First and foremost, Fegraeus said, are the cars themselves. “Vehicles get faster, more technologically advanced and more lu...

Ask baby boomers about ‘muscle cars’ and for sure they would refer you to various car models like the Ford Thunderbird, the Buick Skylark Gran Sport and the Chevrolet Malibu SS.

Top Muscle Cars - 2007 SEMA Show - MSN AutosHere is a look at the top ten muscle cars from the 2007 SEMA Show from MSN autos. I personally love the "Smokey and the Bandit" 1978 Trans Am! Who wouldn't want the guilty pleasure of popping the T-Tops out of that bad boy and going on a beer run. Also interesting is the Gateway Classic Mustang. The plan is to put modern tech under the classic body of the first generation Mustang. Seems a big and expensive task, but then again Classic Mod cars are becoming quite popular. Come on though, isn't drum breaks and Bias Ply tires part of the fun of owning a classic muscle car?

The car provides the benefits of reduced cost and weight over a heavier, more expensive and complicated independent rear suspension. I like how Mustang’s body is constructed that is ...

NASCAR Busch Series may switch to muscle cars
2007-09-17 21:05:00
Many lament the days when stock cars were actually based on production cars, rather than the new NASCAR Nextel Cup Car of Tomorrow vehicles that merely wear stickers bearing the headlights and grille of their production counterparts. While production-based stock cars will likely never happen again, word is that the NASCAR Busch Series will switch to cars based on the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger and yet-to-be-determined model from Toyota as soon as the 2009 season. The world of NASCAR is divided into three series, which include the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, NASCAR Busch Series and NASCAR Nextel Cup Series. The Busch Series has had a bit of an identity crisis lately, though. Meant to be a stage for a up and coming drivers in NASCAR, seasoned vets have taken to racing in the Busch Series as well as the Nextel Cup and usually dominate the podium of the former. While switching to pony cars won't chase away the experienced drivers, it will give the Busch Series a ne...

by Brian Edwards Detroit, or the world, has never produced an automobile that rivals the muscle cars of the 1960?s and early 1970?s. They were big, powerful and wonderfully unrefined. No one would call them sports car in the traditional sense. They were not nimble and curves were dangerous at most any speed. However, what they lacked in sophistication they made up for in brute force. In
