Missing Mopar,

   Some very nice sleds were depicted as representing the 'Muscle cars that made history', and they all deserve to be there, but one was left out that seems like a glaring omission. It's sister car, the Dodge Challenger was shown, but the 1970, '71 and '72 Plymouth 426 Hemi-Cuda's, especially the convertibles, were not listed. Not only great looking, they were badass machines that could stay with or beat most of the road rockets at the time. These cars were produced in extremely limited numbers and are among the most highly sought after by serious collectors. For several years now a number of these rare 'Cuda's have topped the $1 million mark at major auto auctions like Barrett-Jackson. It just would have been nice to see one of those on the list ....

Peace to all ~

You missed a couple.  How about the 1959 Plymouth Fury, dual quads,  the 1961 Pontiac Ventura 421 superduty, the 1961 Chevy Impala 348,  the 1964 Plymouth fury  or Dodge Polara  426 Stage III, or the  1966 Plymouth Satellite Hemi 426 HP, the 1968 Camaro Z28, or the  1970 Pontiac Trans Am  Ram Air IV, or the 1973/74 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty 455, or the Ford Mustang 429, or the Shelby variants? just to name a few more.

Some of these cars were also some of the best looking around, pure  automotive art, unlike most today(with some real exceptions)  which have become generic clones.

In 1971, I owned a 1970 Road Runner. It was burnt orange with black interior. I paid less than $4,500.00 for it and it was a low millage, well kept vehicle. Enhanced the engine with a crane cam, mallory ignition, and headers. Spent many Saturdays on the local drag strip, and it  was turning mid 11 second quarters. The car was total fun and speed. Knowing what I know now, it was a car that should have been kept. Todays value is over $33,000.00.

Ok, let me correct a few posts here. Corvettes, Lamborghini's etc. Those are sports cars not muscle cars. The definition of a muscle car was a mid-size to full size car with a big engine, usually in a coupe model. They didn't handle well and not all were as fast as some of the new cars today. A big engine doesn't denote muscle and is why the pony cars should be left off the list and why no sports cars were listed.
