As much as I like a lot of the pre-1973 Muscle & Classic Cars (Charger, Mustang, Camaro, Chevelle, El Camino, Cuda, Challenger, Impala, Bel Air, GTO, Galaxie, Falcon, Cougar, Caprice, etc) I'm afraid I have to go with the 73-77 Monte Carlo. Why? Is it because I own a 76 MC? Possibly, but more to the point, I like being unique. How often is it that when you go to a car show that you see any of the 1973-1977 GM A-bodies (Grand Prix, Grand Am, Can Am, Le Mans, GTO, Century, Regal, El Camino, Chevelle/Malibu/Laguna, Monte Carlo, Cutlass)? The answer 9 times out of 10 is slim to none. There are tons of mainstream pre-1973 muscle & classic cars at these shows and as cool as they are, being unique is even better. So my answer will remain the 73-77 Monte Carlo. But, here are some of my other favs:

1973 Hurst Olds


1973 Chevrolet Chevelle SS-454


1973 Buick Gran Sport Stage 1


1976 Pontiac Le Mans


1977 Oldmobile 442


1977 Pontiac Cam Am

did anyone else notice that the badges on the side of this car say "boss 428" not 429. just thought id point that out.

my fav would be a 1970 monte carlo ss or a 1970 chevelle ss 454

I'm not sure about the Hemi part, but there was the 428 Cobra Jet and 428 Mach 1.

It's a Boss 429, no such thing as a Boss 428. The Boss 429 V8 was the engine the Mustang used at the time to run in Nascar. As for the pic, I posted the first big pic of a "69 Boss 429", as that's what I typed in google to get an image fast, I didn't feel a need to analyse every inch of it. I guess thats either a rebadged Mach 1 or the picture's just fuzzy.

I would consider the No1 classic car to be a Beetle or Mini.

With Muscle considered, I'd have to go with an AMC Javelin, or AMX. Late '60s of course.

Muscle aside, 1975 AMC Gremlin. Will drop panties faster than a bottle of tequila.

The 1969 Boss 429 with the first S-code engine has to be my fav. also. I love the side scoops and the shark like front end that the 70 never had. I had to settle for the next best thing a 69 Mach 1. But i can still dream!!
