Back throughout the 1950s through the mid 1970s, Detroit car manufacturers produced a number of automobiles that were out and out “muscle” automobiles. These types of vehicles shared the same characteristics: they were 2 door coupes with souped up engines, responsive transmissions, an aggressive outside style, and a stylish interior. High fuel costs and altering tastes eventually restricted sales to the point where just a couple of designs were produced beyond that amount of time. Today, muscle car mania is back, despite even higher gas costs. Thanks to the Ford Mustang and to a lesser degree to sedan and wagon designs from Dodge, there is brand-new interest in a category long provided up. The future is bright for the muscle car sector as one more maker, Chevrolet, thinks about bringing back one of its beloveds of yesteryear, the Camaro.
Besides the Ford Mustang there were an entire host of vehicles produced that at one time or another might have been thought about a muscle car. In addition to the Mustang, the Ford Fairlane 500 and Ford Torino did task; the Mercury Montego was another design; Chevrolet produced the Camaro and Corvette; Pontiac the GTO, Firebird, and Tempest; Olds the 442; American Motors’ had its Javelin; Plymouth had the ‘Cuda, and Dodge produced the Challenger and the Charger. Today, just the Mustang and Corvette makes it through although the Dodge Charger has returned as a four door muscle car together with its sibling, the hot Dodge Magnum wagon.
Interestedly, it took Ford’s redoing of the Mustang for the 2005 design year to stir the current muscle car age fad. Styled after Mustangs constructed in the 1960s, the current Mustang welcomes a retro appearance while including modern innovation. The result has been that the Mustang currently offers its whole 150,000 design capability without rewards.
The Mustang has been inspiring DaimlerChrysler to go on with a retro cruiser of its own. The Dodge Challenger principle car, appearing at automobile shows throughout the USA, has been a huge hit and Chrysler intend on bringing the V8 hemi powered design back in 2009. In addition, General Motors is thinking about providing its blessing on the Camaro, another car also making the rounds of the USA automobile show circuit.
So, right silly to revive such gas hogs? Back throughout the early 1970s, the then current crop of muscle automobiles balanced just 10-12 miles to the gallon around town and 15 or 16 miles per gallon on the highway. Thanks to computer innovation and effectiveness, even the Corvette returns an extremely respectable 28 miles to the gallon the highway. So, although fuel mileage will definitely be lower than many other designs, the brand-new group of muscle automobiles will still better the previous generation automobiles with fuel mileage 80% or more above the automobiles from the 1970s.
Luckily, we still reside in a fairly free country and what the consumer wants, the consumer gets. So, V8 powered muscle automobiles mated to 6 speed manu-matic transmissions, with sport handling, bucket seats, and better fuel economy will likely appeal to many. No, they won’t be specific duplicates of the other day’s muscle automobiles, but they will provide the fond memories and power that vehicle drivers seek. I can’t wait!
