A new breed of automobiles called Muscle Cars emerged from Detroit in the 1960s. This was during an era when drag racing was highly publicized and winning race cars sold briskly at car dealerships. In general, muscle cars were simple to build. They had large-displacement engines and drivetrains optimized for maximum acceleration. Back in the day, genuine factory-built muscle cars were relatively affordable but today command considerable prices in the collector car marketplace. Here are ten models that command some major money when they are offered to the public via auction or private sale.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released statistics regarding the most stolen “sporty” cars and topping the list were the Chevy Camaro, the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger in that order. Given the number of these cars of the street these numbers shouldn’t be surprising. If you have one of these muscle cars you need to make sure your car insurance is in order and covers theft along with general liability as you’d be foolish to risk losing everything.
The retro designs for these three vehicles have been huge hits over the past decade. The Mustang was the sales leader but then the retro Camaro took the top spot. Now Ford is redesigning the Mustang for the 50th anniversary in one of the most anticipated redesigns in recent memory. Let’s see if the new one generates as much passion.
Here’s a cool video we found from Fleming’s Ultimate Garage with this restored muscle car.
Things are heating up in the battle for horsepower supremacy and the 2012 Shelby Mustang 1000 seems to be the new champ. The 1000 moniker is there for the obvious reason with a staggering 1000 horses and that’s not a misprint my friends!
It’s actually seven Bullz-Eye.com models, as we posted the beautiful Brittany Myers twice, but she had two incredible cars, including a 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago Reventon Roadster and a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko S/C.
Along with Brittany and her supercar and muscle car, we have lots of models with various Ferraris, along with Jenny and a black 2000 Corvette. We also added some variety with Jessica and a hot rod and Jacqueline and a junk yard car. Enjoy the slideshow!
