Do muscle cars have a future? Got your attention, didn’t I? Of course they do! They continue to survive fuel crisis, the shift towards family styling of cars, and even more important I think the new modern muscle continues to provide the fury of the originals.
The dictionary defines a muscle car (noun) as a flashy sports car with a large, powerful engine; a hot rod. But if you own one, you know that definition doesn’t even begine to scratch the surface of what a muscle car is.
I love the original muscle cars. They are, of course, legends in their own right and always will be. They will also always be glorious and make heads turn when you see one. They are cars that can not be tamed and should not be. They are four-wheeled American freedom. They represent the love of power and, to some extent, being reckless and wild. And that senario appeals to basically every age – to have an area of your life that is “untamed”.
I also love that the modern muscle strives to capture those ideas and pay homage to those glory days. Which brings up another question…can you obey the street laws and own a muscle car? Yes you can, because part of the joy is just feeling cool while driving them. However, who doesn’t like seeing just how fast that baby can go? I suppose you could always take your muscle car out to the track…
