The Evolution of Muscle Car

Posted by on 11/12/2013 to Hot Rods
With powerful V8 engines, assertive, hefty frames, and loud, rumbling engines, these cars were the undisputed rulers of the road. Then, with the 80's came oil shortages, skyrocketing gas prices, environmental concerns hit the automotive industry with force. Cars became smaller, more fuel efficient. Chevy, Dodge, and Ford were replaced by Honda, Toyota, and Nissan. Muscle cars seemed nothing more than a fond relic of the distant past. Now, the muscle car evolution has come full circle. With new designs taking advantage of the latest fuel technologies and modern conveniences, the big American ar companies have begun to reintroduce classic American muscle cars back into the world. Mustangs, Chargers, GTOs, and Challengers are once again prowling the streets, and the rumble of powerful V8 engines once again calls out to car enthusiast everywhere. They’re fast, they’re loud, and they’re fun. These cars have engines you can actually work on, parts you can actually customize, and power you can truly feel! Boasting over 300 and 400 horsepower, the retooled engines on these cars are designed to appeal to real car enthusiasts. For instance, Chrysler’s 300C actually borrows the cylinder-head design of the classic 1960's muscle car, the Hemi. Online muscle car forums make it easy to find information on these hot new cars as well as links to specialty shops where you can buy custom grills, spoilers, wheels, and more. You can restyle the newest models to better embody the muscle car definition and body of yesteryear while still enjoying the boosted power and convenience of the modern innovations. Too many of today’s cars have become mere conveyances to take us from here to there. Their complex electric motors and sensible, quiet engines make them practical for everyday driving, but rob the driver of the fun of owning and tinkering with a car. Thankfully, the muscle car evolution has brought back cars that you can actually be proud to own. With the right tools and the right motivation, you can recapture what it really means to drive.
