I would have to say the coolest muscle car that was stock (in my personal opinion) was the 1969 Mustang Boss 302 w/ the shaker hood. It was fast, it was good around the curves, and it was nice to look at it. Producing almost 1 hp for every cubic inch, it was quicker in the short run that it's bigger brethren, the Boss 429.

I would have said the Boss 429 was the best, but it just wasn't powerful enough for it's size. That is until someone got an aftermarket cam and heads to help it release it's pent up horsepower. Then it could compete with even the best Mopars in the day.

Well, I am hard pressed to choose between a Shelby GT500, COBRA 427S/C, Dodge Viper, or a Hemi Challenger . However, the decision was made cuz a 1992-2002 Dodge Viper RT/10, GTS, GTS-R, any hennessy venom, stryker viper, GT2, (had enuf alphabet soup yet? thought so ) this is the one single car, if i could only have one car, I'd pick up a Viper.

I think the coolest muscle car is the '68 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 KR. That is one hell of a car!

Has to be the 1970 Buick GSX. 455, sleek looks, need I say more?

The camaro was never intended to be a muscle car, but rather a pony car like the Mustang.

Also forgot to mention the Viper is a sports roadster, not a muscle car.

I've got to put my vote down for the 1969 Dodge Charger RT/SE. That may not be the best choice for complete speed and handling but it is the car that I would prefer to drive around.

Go with 1967 Camaro Z28. Much better looking.

However, my favorite is the 1969 Camaro RS\SS with the LS-6 engine package.

It's a little late, but here are the last of the 71' Hemi 'Cudas.
The green is an original, the yellow convertible is a clone based on a '69 Barracuda:

The Viper is up there but nothing beats the oldschool muscle cars like the Charger's, Cuda's, Fury's, etc. On this one I had to go with the Charger because thats the first actual muscle car I ever really learned anything about.
