Muscle Cars

The 1960s began the era of the "muscle cars"—big engines, big speed and bragging rights. The 1955 Chrysler C-300 with its 300-bhp Hemi-head V-8 set an early standard to beat and became the new star of NASCAR and the 1960 Chrysler 300F, considered by many to be the first muscle car boasted even more engine innovation. Other iconic muscle cars were the 1967 Plymouth GTX and the Pontiac GTO, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1969 Dodge Super Bee, the 1970 Dodge Challenger, 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z28.
