That might be difficult to contemplate today, but 30 years ago, it was a reality. Let’s look back and see what made the 1987 turbo trifecta from Buick three of the most revered muscle cars of their time. Read the rest of this entry

In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll take a look at the 2004-2006 Dodge Ram SRT-10. Remember the Dodge Li’l Red Express? That red stepside truck with wood trim and chrome side pipes that Dodge built in the late 1970s. It was the fastest production vehicle in its day and had enough firepower to outgun the Chevrolet Corvette. That was then and this is now. Today, the Dodge Ram SRT-10 is the fastest production truck ever created. It’s held that record for over 12 years and it doesn’t appear to be dethroned anytime soon.

1966 Shelby GT350 #1 WAC

In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll turn back the clock and check out the 1965-1966 Shelby GT350. Like a pseudoscientist from the Dark Ages, Carroll Shelby worked his black magic on a Ford Mustang GT fastback and transformed it into something even more nimble and sinister. In its day, the Shelby GT350 was a car that had no true equal. There was no Camaro or Firebird for Shelby’s creation to instill fear. It was a standout back then and it’s still a legend today.

1970 Plymouth Cuda Hemi LOV #3

The 1970-1971 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda is the star of this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase. For 1970, the ‘Cuda was all-new. The ‘Cuda’s pretty boy looks and fastback styling from the 1960s were now gone. In its place was a combatant with a more aggressive design and features, ready to take on what the Camaro SS 396 and Mustang Boss 429 could dish out. The 1970-1971 Hemi ‘Cuda was also no longer overshadowed by its crosstown rivals. Its time was now and it was out to make a name for itself.  Read the rest of this entry
