Tired of hearing about electric cars and autonomous driving? Forget about it!
We’re living in a golden age of muscle car performance. Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers and Chargers with 500+ horsepower V8s and a new-car warranty are yours for a monthly payment. Modern muscle cars may be better than the classics in many ways, but the old ones possess a striking coolness that makes them unforgettable. Plus, there were way more muscle car models to choose from in the '60s and early '70s.
From AMX to Z/28, the names sounded like poetry carved in asphalt: Boss 429, Chevelle SS, Hemi ’Cuda, GTO, 4-4-2, Road Runner, Super Bee and many others.
They prowled the streets like predators on the hunt, fueled by Sunoco 260 and the driver’s excitement. Sure, streaming tunes through your iPod today beats fiddling with a clunky old 8-track tape deck any day. But ’60s and ’70s muscle cars didn’t need high tech to become some of the most celebrated vehicles ever made.
You love these iconic high-octane coupes, but how much do you really know about them? Can you tell a GTO from a GTX? Do you know what turns an ordinary Mustang fastback into a Boss, or a Barracuda into a ’Cuda?
Crank up some Credence or Stones and bring your knowledge to the starting line. Rev it up, drop the clutch and take this quiz to match brain power to horsepower.
