Muscle Cars - It's A Love

After years and years of hearing how muscle cars are out of here never to be seen again, I'm beginning to think that all these people that hate muscle cars are losing the battle, back in the mid to late 1970's I heard that gas prices would kill American muscle cars, and then again in the 1980's when the government got tough on emissions and began to kill power that all cars had.

We had Ralph Nader telling us that cars were the cause of all of the pollution problems on our planet, when in actuality cars only encompass about 1% of the problem, and you can get lees emissions and still have power, this entire thing is just people that don't like cars, and want to blame something for all of their problems, and it might as well be a cars, something that can't even fight back.

American muscle cars are a part of out countries history, and you don't just wipe out history, I see different agencies and companies that are restoring all kinds of houses that are considered historic landmarks, and people are stopping them from being torn down all the time, what is the difference between this history, and our countries automotive history, just explain that to me.

I love classic American cars, I have from the first time I ever seen one, and I will until the day I die, and of all the classic cars, the American muscle cars are my favorite of all times, if you want to know why, I'll try to explain it to you, have you ever felt pure raw horsepower and torque, if not it feel kind of like getting pushed really hard, but at the same time your pinned to a seat, and can't move.

It's a feeling of being the only one in a car just like yours, it's respect for American ingenuity and know how, it's the body lines of a classic American muscle car, it's the feeling you get when your behind the wheel, it feels just like pure satisfaction that can't be belittled by anybody, it feels like your the king of your domain, it feels like driving a work of art, and it feels like your god.

Nothing else is quite the same as driving an American muscle car, and I'll be here to stand up for them for a long time, every time I hear people blaming muscle cars for yet another atrocity, and telling people how much better the import companies build cars, I'll always come running to the defense of American cars, and yes that will always include muscle cars.

I'm American to the core, I believe in all things American, and that makes it my duty to defend American muscle cars, it's not that hard when you love the thing that you defend, I love America and it's cars, so if I have anything to say about it, nobody will ever belittle the American muscle car, nobody will destroy it's legacy, and the Detroit motor companies will always be god in my eyes.

  • Car Restoration
  • Muscle Car Community

I've been in the automotive business for about 20 or 25 years, I have worked in all facets of the industry, from parts to restoration, all different makes and models, I just want to keep people interested in the old cars because it's where my heart is.
