List Rules Vote up the best muscle cars of all time.

A list of the best muscle cars ranked by you. These are true muscle cars, not pony cars, and none of those new plastic toys claiming to be muscle cars. If you're looking for Mustangs and Camaros then check out my ranked Pony Car list. Old muscle cars are brash, blue-collar, fuel guzzling machines. They're factory made hot rods in which a huge engine has been placed within a medium sized car. What you get is a loud, exciting machine that turns like a boat. Gear-heads wouldn't have it any other way. Two doors and rear wheel drive are standard. Tracks are fine, but these cars are at their best when cruising and drag racing between the lights. Muscle car names are usually pretty over-the-top, so here are some real model names so you can tell all of these bad boys apart.
