On this day in 1965, General Motors reported the biggest profit of any company at that point in United States history.  To commemorate that day, we bring you this question:

If you had about 50 grand to blow on a GM muscle car, which muscle car do you prefer and why?

I have to go with the Vette, since I am the owner of a newer Vette. I know the capablility of a Vette.

Between these two, GTO no question. That thing just screams muscle car.

I can only agree with Jeff Knoespel. If I wanted a “muscle car”, I’d take the GTO. However, the C2 Corvette has got to be one of the most beautiful American cars ever made and because of that, I’d have to go for the Corvette.

Gotta go mid year Corvette. It’s the best looking one ever built. As long as it’s not compared to a ’69 Camaro, it’s by GM muscle car of choice.

Well depends on what type of performance you wanted. Hands down power to the pavement pounder-GTO. refined all around driver, liable to lose a drag raceto a goat, but not outrun overall-Vette

That Corvette is a beautiful car from the ’60’s, and it would be a nice car to have, however, the GTO is, like, the quintessential “muscle car.” When people think of true muscle cars, they probably think of a GTO. If I had to pick between them, just as cars, I’d have the Corvette, but if I really wanted a “muscle car,” I’d take the GTO. 😉

No question, GTO. A car like that is made for tearing up the streets all night long.
It’s just a brutal machine. Ditch those mufflers and raise some hell!
Get the corvette if your the type of person who goes for ice cream on Sunday after church.

Corvette, hands down…looks, machismo, independent rear end…

I have to say, the C3 was always my favourite a youngster growing up. I loved it’s simplistic yet overstated lines which conjured up a ‘beautifully aggressive’ style that would, if I had the extra expendable budget, buying a good one in a heartbeat.

Vette by a landslide.
Not for nought was the Vette Stingray the only American car to feature in The Most Beautifuul Cars section of (UK) CAR magazine’s 50th birthday issue.

GTO because its the pretty much the first muscle car and I’ve always wanted one, I’ve never been a big corvette person

The Corvette would work better on this side of the pond, but if I move to the States (with an American wife that is possible) I can see the appeal of the GTO.

I’d go for the Corvette as it was an E Type Jag chaser and oozes all that the 60,s design was about. Bloody lovely…

Such a different vibes, both those cars. I would probably have to choose the ‘vette because in my eyes the C2 is still one of the most beautiful american cars ever made, I miss my old ’69 Stingray and….side pipes. I could see rocking that GTO to though. Better have both.

I’ve always loved the ’65 GTO (and the one pictured is beautiful), but I’d have to agree with Joseph.

Corvette wins on looks alone.
