Track, Drag Strip, and Canyons: Which Muscle Cars?
Carroll Shelby took a little galloping sports car, the Ford Mustang, and turned it into a world-wide track racing phenomenon. Don Yenko developed a small run of cars that became one of the most iconic high-speed street drag cars. Those at Plymouth also had a trick up their sleeves, but rather than relying on just one soul to produce a heart-thumping package, they did it themselve, creating the Plymouth Barracuda AAR in 1970. The Barracuda was everything you wanted in a car during that time, with excellent handling, power and reliability—think the larger cousin of the Porsche 911 2.7 RS.
These three are a small sampling of cars in the same era that were built to perform different tasks. Each came with enormous power figures and a unique experience that helped draw the line in the muscle car loyalty sand.
So tell us, which muscle cars would you take to the track, drag strip, and canyons?
