35 Muscle Cars to Bring Back (and 10 to Forget About)
Enough with the motion-sensing, self-parking, auto-open, beeping, flashing nonsense that is the common car of today. We want these bad boys back! Manual, heavy, loud and proud – the following 35 muscle cars are ones we want to see re-made. And at the end we’ll show you 10 muscle cars that can gladly stay put in the past. Do you agree with us?
First, let’s get the Oldsmobile 4-4-2’s pronunciation right. You’re supposed to say each number individually, so four-four-two. That’s because the original 4-4-2 features a four barrel carburetor, a 4 speed transmission (many cars back then were only three speeds), and dual exhaust. Seem a bit pretentious? Maybe but the 4-4-2 was a classy car that simply happened to offer a lot of muscle. In fact, the 4-4-2’s performance was good enough for it to be selected as the pace car for the 1970 Indianapolis 500. Sadly, Oldsmobile is no more so we’ll likely never see a new Oldsmobile 4-4-2 again.
