    Here’s my 69 Dodge Polara. I don’t know if it meets the “muscle car” definition but the 383 4bl can really roast tires and fly.

    I can certainly dig that (looks at screen name)…

    '85?

    I've been hankering for another one for years, but it just never seems to line up. The next one will be a gun-metal grey or silver T-Type. Or a Regal Limited (for that classy, leather and button interior )

    The newest fun car is the exact opposite of a GN; a V1 CTS-V. Four doors, 6-speed, naturally aspirated. It's got a monster cam and heads with all the goodies, dyno'd at 530 to the wheels.

    I've had it almost 10 years, and really love it. I've contemplated selling it a few times, but every time I head out to the garage and look at or take it for a spin, I change my mind quickly. It's weird. It can be an absolute sedate car to drive; it handles great, the interior is Cadillac plush, the stereo is awesome, and it has all the creature comforts (for it's day). It's ALMOST boring, until you put your foot into it.

    It gets funny looks because most people have never seen a late model Cadillac with a stick or one that idles like "potato-potato-potato-potato" haha.

    Here's some recent pictures, one being from Pintastic New England '19

    The other car is a '94 Z-28 1LE that I bought 20 years ago, not realizing it was a factory 1LE car. In those days, I liked "stripped" cars, because they were always faster, and had less do-dads to break (anyone who has owned an early 90's GM KNOWS what I'm talking about...). I thought it was interesting that it was fully deleted, until I realized what it was. Didn't stop me from adding some things, however. This one is pretty mild with upgraded brakes, GM 275 ZR-1's, an LT4 head and cam, and the other usual bolt-ons. It's been around Limerock a few times back in it's day. It was sort of radical when I built it, but is totally tame by today's standards. That said, this one will never leave.

    I've had cars come and go, but I doubt these two will be going anywhere anytime soon.

    87. The 85's are known as the "hot air" cars, and you should avoid anything older than 86.

    I know they are, I didn't want to offend you if it wasn't intercooled...

    The non-vertical slatted grille and the hood ornament are throwing me off, considering it's badged as a GN.

    Sharp looking car, nonetheless.

    ETA upon further inspection it looks like a T-Type (hence the hood ornament), and the "slatting" appears just to be an optical illusion from a monster intercooler? Also, as zoomed in as I can get, it looks like it's badged as a T, and not a GN. They are in the top 5 of my favorite vehicles of all time.

    Yep, 86 or 87 is what you want. 87 GNX would be nice...

    Correct. It started its life as a "designer series" turbo Regal, which was two-tone silver and black, and had the rear spoiler as original equipment. Interior was ratted out, so I installed Grand National interior and badges, painted it all black. Roughly the same car now. The engine is built, front mount intercooler, big ball-bearing turbo, big injectors, FAST XFI ECU, Champion heads, girdle, steel mains, etc. Screamer.

    Just got back from a week at the "Kaikoura hop" in Kaikoura, NZ
    Very small town on the east coast of the south island. Perfect weather for most of the trip, saw dolphins feeding on fish on the ferry rides to and from the south islands. Kaikoura is famous for year round whales, due to a large trench off the coast and the scenery of mountains and ocean in the same field of vison.
    Aprox 2 thousand cars i was told, with a good mix of show cars and dirty old running bogan mobiles.

    By know means a muscle car but thought I would share.
    Toyota Yaris GRMN.
    Bought this new last year, limited run of 400 only in Europe and only 80 in the UK. 212bhp supercharged engine, Lotus tuned.
    Tuned on the Nurburgring, 0-60 5.9 secs limited to 143mph.
    This is one scary little car and a lot of fun.

    Got the oil cooler and remote filter hooked up and no leaks. Now to replace the fuel cell can and top, old one was nasty. Clean the outside of the bladder, clean and install new bolts on the fill plate, fill holes and drill new ones and repaint the cell mounting frame. Nice having a clean and warm garage to work on it over the winter.

    I never heard of this Mopar trim option until the other day. Part of me is horrified but part of me wants one so bad. Does this make it more of a muscle car or less? Either way, it's rare.

    It's a 363 using a big bore Dart SHP block with the 289 deck height. Hp... I'm not even going to guess. But certainly enough to get one hell of a thrill from a car under 2500 lb.

    Not the rare trim option, but instead of only working on vintage playground equipment in the Summer and
    EMs in the Winter, finally going to put some time in the Barracuda. A couple weeks ago I put on a fresh 750
    double pumper, today it's getting inspected, then comes the interior and then 68 Cuda blue. This is my 5th
    Cuda, 3rd 1968. Had this one since 1980..

    I love this. Congrats and can appreciate yours a lot. Just like the one that I had at my house for a friend for 10 years. Black and side pipes. But no 427! And it wasn’t originally black and didn’t have side pipes either.

    While this is not a muscle car be definition, it has the most muscle of anything I have ever owned. If it does not belong here let me know and I can delete. Added 20 HP by putting the SRT steering wheel in it (joking).
