50 Fastest Muscle Cars

Take it for what it's worth, but I found this... pretty interesting!
P.S. - Don't shoot the messenger!!
50 Fastest Muscle Cars



These are the fastest muscle cars of all time, as ranked by Muscle Car Review Magazine, the source on muscle cars. This ranking was developed by comparing muscle cars as measured by different, respected sources, which were then ranked by their respective quarter mile elapsed times.

It is an interesting list and I've referenced several times myself. My only comment would be that people need to see the list as general information rather than a "written in stone" list to "prove" that a 6 Pack Road Runner is faster than a ZL-1 Camaro. It isn't necessarily so. Different drivers, tracks, elevation, temperature, humidity, states of tune, tires, rear end gears, etc. etc. all conspire to make such a comparison difficult to be meaningful. I would say that any car in the top 50 is a worthy competitor.

....but while were on the subject of lists, here's Musclecar Magazine's top 10 power producers;

- #1 Corvette 427 L-88: 480hp
- #2 Mopar 426 Street Hemi: 470hp
- #3 Chevelle 454 LS-6: 450hp
- #4 Oldsmobile 455 W-30: 440hp
- #5 Corvette 427 tri-power: 435hp
- #6 Mopar 440 6 Pack: 430hp
- #7 Ford 427 dual-quad: 425hp
- #8 tie: Buick 455 Stage I; Mustang Boss 429; 420hp
- #9 tie: Mopar 440 Magnum; Mustang 428CJ; Pontiac RA 400; 410hp
- #10 Chevrolet 396 L-78; 400hp



Cheers,
Dave

That list is interesting, but I have another one that excludes factory racecars, custom one-offs, and $500,000.00 exotic supercars.
