A hemi superbird, if it came with armed guards. Or may a Ford Talladega, the same sort of thing.

To actually drive, a 73 big block Monte Carlo in Black, or a Type S3 Laguna, 74 Grand Am 455 or possibly a cowl induction Chevelle 454 4 speed.

Alright, in the spirit of the thread, I'll also say an original 427 Cobra.

I did buy a late model version of what was intended as a successor (with input from Carroll), instead.

Rick Ehrenberg's Green Brick 1969 Valiant.

That not an option, any 1968-74 A-body (probably a Dart or Valiant sedan) done up essentially the same way...great handling, great brakes, and a rip-roaring 500+HP bullet under the hood. It would be equally at home at Epping, Watkins Glen, a highway, or a back road.

Other than that, they were a pure PITA. They sounded and looked nice but were basically rattle-traps. Suspension, steering, brakes -and reliability in-general were pure junk compared to any modern low-end "performance" vehicle.

Been There, Done That (in real time)... You can keep e'm.

If I were to suddenly act-out on my midlife crisis, I'd get a Camaro ZL1-1LE and an AMG C 63 S-class.


That's because they were GM cars.

Hate to be the picky one, but Mustangs, Camaros, Barracudas etc are pony cars, not muscle cars.
Corvettes and Cobras are sports cars.
I will find a pic of the 4-4-2... For now, here's a sports car (my ghetto ride, money pit, wasted $$).

Flame suit on...

I think we have to define "muscle car" as something American that was built early sixties to early seventies.
Given those constraints, I'd like either a '67 Z28 or any of the real hemi engined Chrysler division cars of the day.
There's also the R-code Ford 427.
In the absence of those constraints, there are a bunch of Italian exotics of the period anyone would love to have, although the American iron would be much less costly to own and drive.
And, yeah, I'd drive the thing. That's what cars are for after all.
I'll add an editorial comment in that auctions and the concept of old cars as investments have ruined the hobby for typical enthusiast lookers. There was a time when an average buyer could find E-type Jags, Ferraris of various vintages as well as the now wildly overpriced mid-year Corvettes for affordable money. Those days ended back in the eighties. To think that American cars that were once found mainly on cheap used car lots with nobody older than eighteen or so wanting them given their thirst are now high dollar collectables seems a sad joke.

In the early 1990's almost bought a PERFECT, all original 67 Corvette Roadster, 327, 4 speed, blue/blue/white. Low $20's
