I would take a 1970 chevelle , 1970 cuda before a super bird although they are neat but definitely not the best looking.

Take that stupid wing off and it would be better. Chevy rules around here. We could re-make the movie "Dazed and Confused" with all the cars in my barn. We're talkin' some f---in muscle.

Let me tell you what Melba Toast is packin' right here, all right. We got 4:11 Positrac outback, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some f----n' muscle.

 I agree, get rid of the wing; but, the Mustang rules where I live.  Roger

Nothing wrong with a Mustang! I bet most of us would take an old 70's style muscle car regardless of the brand :thumbup:

I just serviced one of my old customers stoves last week and he still has 3 rusting out old AMC Javelins out in his field, I've been trying to get him to do something with them for years, now that was a sharp ride.

 No doubt the Sbird was a unique, cool and historic vehicle with Nascar provenance but good looking? In the eye of the beholder, right? For me I like the first gen Camaro's and Firebird's or a 71 Chevelle SS, maybe a 66 Corvette or a Judge GTO. The best looking car has to have some lines to it, those Superbird's were too boxy for my taste. I like to see the old Javelins, Torino's, Challenger's, and Mustangs also, for me it's not always what's under the hood, I like to see original examples, the big block cars and factory horse power is amazing and don't get me wrong but if a person has to modify the entire drivetrain to get even more muscle then where do you stop? May as well put it on the track, really modify it and go racing where you can use it. Cool thread, by the way I'm shutting down the boiler today, happy summer guys/gals.

One nice thing about a Javelin is they are not as common as a lot of some other cars.

To be honest I am a Viper Mopar guy, but not any kind of raging brand bias.

I see you didn't properly vote. 

I do agree with you about eye of the beholder.  It takes all types.  Hell people like slimjim like the Gremlin for cryin out loud.
