Poll: What’s the Best Modern Muscle Car?


Muscle Cars!

Muscle cars. Just hearing those two words is enough to send your testosterone production into overtime. But there’s one question that has remained unanswered since the ‘70s: which muscle car reigns supreme on the streets.

You’ve got 2 options to find that answer. First, you could drive around and tally up the urinating-Calvin window stickers to see which of the Big Three are golden-showered the least. But that’s a tad unscientific. The second option is a lot more accurate: take a poll! We’re counting on you to give us the definitive answer once and for all.

Return of the King: Mustang’s New 5.0 Reins in More Horsepower & Torque for 2011


2010 Ford Mustang GT

AutoWeek has gotten the inside line on the new 5.0-liter that Ford plans to ship in the 2011 Mustang.  Brace yourself, as it sounds like Ford has made plans take hold of the reins in the American muscle ring.

412 ponies will be driven by 390 ft-lbs of torque…from a 5.0 V8… with a redline of at least 6,500 RPM.  That’s 83 horsepower per liter.  The all new aluminum block and cylinders have been designed to let the engine breathe like an Olympian running the 100-meter dash. Cast iron sleeves help protect the light-weight block while distributing large amounts of heat away from the cylinders.

Now compare this to is American breathren.  The Camaro SS outputs 422HP from it’s 6.2-liter V8, and the Challenger puts out a healthy 425 HP from its 6.1-liter SRT8 hemi.  Both vehicles should weigh considerably more than the 2011 Mustang, which should give the Blue Oval a significant advantage.

So, which would you take down to the strip?

2010 Chevy Camaro Options Leaked, Spec out your Next Muscle Car


2010 Chevy Camaro

Someone out there got their mitts on the official 2010 Chevy Camaro Ordering Guide. This is 40 pages of pure Muscle Car Madness! You can build your dream machine or a budget booster, your choice. Given the current economic condition, I think I’d be happy saving some money on the base model 300 Horsepower V6 and then customize it with the standard American muscle mods; intake, chip and exhaust. With those kinds of mods, you should be able to squeeze out another 50-60 horses, making your baseline Camaro produce about 20% more power.  Mmm, mmm good….

Make your decision today by checking out the ordering guide on Scribd.com.
