1966-1967 Dodge Charger

Standard

The 1966-1967 Dodge Charger is the star car in this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase. This sleek coupe was born from the 1965 Charger II concept car and released the following year as a production model. The first generation Dodge Charger shares the concept’s distinctive fastback styling, long hood, and short rear deck. Its look is totally unmistakable. And yet, it was fairly practical. Part luxury car, part muscle car, the Dodge Charger was the kind of car for the family man as well as those geared for performance. Let’s see what makes this often overlooked Charger worthy of a second look. Read the rest of this entry

Standard

The 1987 Buick Regal Grand National, Turbo T, and GNX shine in this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase. It’s hard to believe there was a time when Buick actually built some incredible muscle cars. 30 years ago, the Grand National, Turbo T, and GNX were three of the fiercest performance cars you could get during the so-called Malaise Era. 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

The 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T is the center of attention in this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase. Beaten to the punch, late for the party, and right place at the wrong time are just a few expressions that define the Challenger’s entry into the fiercely competitive pony car market. It arrived five years after the Mustang’s introduction and was released at a time when the muscle car was coming under fire by Uncle Sam and the insurance companies. The 1970 Challenger was Dodge’s way of giving both entities the middle finger and coming out with its own pony car anyway. Let’s take a look and see what makes the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T such an iconic muscle car. Read the rest of this entry

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

1973 Pontiac Trans Am Super Duty #2 WAC

In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll turn back the clock and look at the 1973-1974 Pontiac Firebird and Trans Am Super Duty. In a time when muscle cars were becoming as extinct as the dinosaur, Pontiac did the unthinkable and unleashed the Super Duty on the buying public. The Firebird and Trans Am Super Duty were truly the muscle car’s last hurrah. In a time when insurance rates on muscle cars soared and rising gas prices were becoming the norm, the Super Duty was something of an anachronism. Read the rest of this entry

The 2016 Ford Mustang GT California Special convertible is the latest addition to the TCB Garage. This modern day interpretation is a throwback to the original that first appeared way back in 1968. Fast forward to 2016 and the concept is pretty much the same. Except this time around, you can get the California Special as a coupe or convertible. We couldn’t wait to drop the top and put in some drive time to see what makes the California Special so…umm…special. Read the rest of this entry
