Was watching Christine a few nights ago and thought that Plymouth is actually badass! Even looked good with a tint which is usually reserved for modern cars.


I had a 1960 Plymouth Fury 413 VERY RARE Mule car, just like the one in this picture a few years ago!

I sold it to a Petty relative.

Pro Touring all the way. You get the timeless look of a classic muscle car with the addition of modern high performance engines, brakes, tires, suspensions, etc. A modified 700hp L7 motor idling in a '69 Camaro sounds way more badass than any Italian import. Maybe with the exception of a Ford V8 Pantera..

With those wide 888's that Camaro won't lack grip..
Looks a lot like the Red Devil..

america has produced the shittest cars in history.

Olds had some good cars, like the 57 Olds Rocket 88 with the 3 dueces, or the 4-4-2.
Also, look at the quad 4 race car.

Look at the Impala SS', especially the coupes, along with other cars, especially the 50s Continental II, which cost more than a Rolls Royce.

What many fail to realize was that America's car heyday started fading out by the late 60s-early 70s, the Euros started getting stronger by early to mid 60s, and the Japanese stated getting stronger by late 70s early 80s.
So, it is unfair to say that America makes the shittiest cars, when in fact they were instrumental (the hotrod movement among other things) in helping the Euros and the Japanese.

I love muscle cars but unless they were recently rebuild they all stink like oil and gasoline.

I actually like that, in new cars you're in a sterilized environment, with older cars you know you're driving something that runs on gasoline.

Damn... the Alfa looks so amazing from this angle. So glad it's back to doing cars like that instead of the crap that came out of the anusfactory in the 80's and 90's.


I like both muscle cars and "exotics". I don't really put them in the same category though.

Depends on what "trumps" and "all" means in this context.

The Alfa 33 Stradale is easily one of the most, if not the most, beautiful cars ever. The Ferrari P330 is also beautiful:



I really like the flying buttress rear pillars of the 1970 Dodge Charger, probably my favorite muscle car.

any us muscle car looks like absolute shit compared to a testarossa

This.

My 4 cents:
1) - almost all American muscle looks like shit, except for Vettes.  Vettes of all generations are great except for the c4, which was a dog both in looks and performance. c5's are my fave, and I'm looking forward to the 2014 c7.
2) - The OP posted a first generation Countach, which was a far cry from how they looked later in the production. The later incarnations of it age quite well and the Countach remains one of the most slick lookin' pieces of machinery ever built and turns heads on the road to this day.
3) - The Testarossa is my all-time favorite car and is my dream to one day own. Problem is, the maintenance is horrible on them and runs around $5,000-$10,000/yr to properly upkeep. So, even if you save enough pennies to buy one, you have to make sure you have the coin to throw into that perpetual money pit.
4) - Other Ferrari's such as the 308, 328, 355, 348, etc... are easier to upkeep and look almost as good, and are vehicles I'd much rather drive than non-Vette American muscle.
