Default What is this groups favorite sports or muscle cars? Besides the c4 ofcourse.

Id have to say in no particular order for me. c4, Ferrari Testarossa, Acura Nsx, Camaro Iroc z28 with the 350 obviously. Also a first generation Dodge Viper. Also 80s Porsche 911s with the whale tail. Theres a couple others I really like too, but I think that's a good list for now.

Any thirdgen w/a V8 and a stick shift

Any late 80's, 5.0/5 speed Fox body

Early Stealth RT/TT.

^I picked these b/c of actual experience driving them. Not just b/c I think they seem like "cool cars". The Stealth wasn't that fun in the summer -it was O.K...but holy smokes in the winter (on snow packed roads), when boost came up in 2nd gear....LOOK OUT!

I remember when I first got my c4 I was rolling with a 3000 gt. We got to a stop sign he wanted no part of a race. I wonder if I coulda beat him

I love Vipers. I love that they're so unique. My neighbor's supercharged Gen I is one of the most fun and raw cars I've ever been in. I would buy his if he ever put it up for sale. It's a great "special occasion" supercar.

I also love Ferraris. I'd love to own a 550/575. The 458 is also stunning to the eyes and ears. I'm also recently obsessed with McLaren. I think they're about to explode into the mainstream super sports car market.

I could go on with more, but deep down, I'm always a Vette guy!

If he had a TT VR-4, and you had a TPI, he'd probably have the edge -but only a slight edge. In LT1 against a TT VR-4 should be no contest in favor of the LT1.

Mid 14's for the RT/TT

Still remember my 67 malibu ss396 . 375 hp, 4 spd, 411 gears. I would burn off in front of the high school when school was getting out. . Leave rubber for 100 yds. Everybody thought it was pretty cool. Miss that car too.

I like a lot of different cars but when (not if) I hit the lotto the first two cars in my newly constructed man cave will be a 69 Dodge Charger Daytona and a 70 Plymouth Superbird. I was seven years old when I saw my first Superbird lumbering down the street in that loud lime green color...it made quite the impression on me.

C4s, Gen 3 F bodies, Gen 4 Firebirds (either 3.8 and 5 speed or the 5.7 LT1 or LS1s...auto or stick for them), early Vipers, Dodge Stealth RTs, Ferrari 512 TRs, Lamborghini Diablos (the late 90s and early 00s), C3 corvettes, Saturn Sky Redlines, Fieros, Ferrari 458s, C5 Corvettes, C7 Stingray those are the cars that are near the top of my Must Haves.

Below that? Jag XJ220s, RX-7s, NSX, later vipers. C6 corvettes, 300ZXs, 90s Skyline GTRs.

Oh geez, I love them all. Lets see... favorite...

Nope, can't find a favorite. Old or new, anything American with a V8, I love.

And if it's not a V8, there's only one car. Buick Grand National.

My first muscle-car experience was in 1970. I was 8, my cousin had just returned from Viet Nam and bought a Chevelle SS454 LS6 in Hugger Orange & black.

Needless to say, I went for a ride and was hooked. He owned all kinds of nice GM muscle over the years, but my first car?

You guessed it...a '70 SS Chevelle (396).

What about an '89 Turbo Trans Am? I could dig one of those too.

Hemi Superbird/Daytona
67 GTO
70 Buick Gran Sport 455
70 Chevelle SS LS6
Hemi Cuda/Challenger
70 TransAm
L88 Vette (any year)
63 Split Window Fuelie
65 Vette Roadster Fuelie
78 Trans Am
70 442 W30
87 Buick GNX

There ya go!! Those dozen would fill my dream garage along with my 71 and 88 Vettes. Funny thing is my 2012 Cadillac CTS-V would still blow all these cars away. It just doesn't have that muscle car style and character. If we add exotics there would be lot of Italian, German and Japanese cars to add.
