If you are a car enthusiast, you must have a favorite muscle car. I know the time frame is debatable, but if we set the muscle car era to be from 1964 – 1972, we can all have a good starting point. So now which car will it be? and why?
Me? I’m going with the 1970-72 Chevy Monte Carlo. If and when I own one, it won’t be stock. It needs to have an obnoxiously violent sounding engine in it. I want to hear every cylinder of the big block ignite and blow it’s 11:1 compression out the open headers in the form of hellfire. Behind the massive injected big block will probably sit an M-22 Muncie 4-speed. It will whine in every gear, but it won’t matter because I won’t hear it over the open headers. I’ll be shifting it at the edge of it’s life, and making my valve springs work overtime. My Monte will sit on the ground, it will be so low that ants will be ducking their antennae. The rear quarters will hide the upper half of the widened steelies and M/T slicks. The windows will be tinted so black that I may not be able to see out of them, I will be forced to roll them down half way when I need to. When I stab the gas pedal to the floor, I want to feel like I was hit in the back by a rocket. Oddly enough, I also want the rear tires to fry on command. Somehow I will figure out how to have both….. Soo yea, that’s my favorite imaginary muscle car.
What’s yours? Why?
