Its funny you posted this topic, I was just about to... I made a list of my own, similar to yours.

Here's a list of my top 10 favorite cars of all time, in random order:

1967 Chevy Corvette L88 427
1968 Shelby GT500KR
1969 Pontiac GTO Judge 400 R/A IV
1969 Pontiac Firebird TransAm 400 R/A IV
1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 428 CJ
1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator 429 SCJ
1970 Plymouth Barracuda 426 Hemi
1970 Dodge Challenger 426 Hemi
1970 Buick GSX 455
1978 Ford XC Cobra

This list will probably change from day to day, since there are many others I had to leave out to make it 10.

LOL. It's diffucult to compile a top 10 list.
- What criteria does one look at?
To be truly imparcial if you are Ford ,Chev or GM fan.Is also a issue.


- Does Horsepower set it apart?
Performance.Looks,drivability ect,
- Seeing as the Classic Musclecar era lasted a few short years.Before Fuel crissis and Insurance companies refusing to insure Musclecars at a stage.

So I like your list too.

How about a SOUTH AFRICAN top 10.

Surfing the www, found this link to this guys favourite 50 muscle cars. I like his list, and note no Corvettes are included.

Why is the Dodge Challenger and charger not in the two top 10 lists?

What about the Ford Galaxy coups?

: Ford Fairmont GT HO Phase 3
: Ford Mustang Boss 429
: Camaro ZL1
: Plymout Hemi Cuda
: Camaro 427 Copo
: Chevelle SS 454
: Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt( maybe borderline as these werent really road legal)

Will need to put some thought into the others....

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

:lol: my dream top 10 list would be all Hemi Cuda's. :mrgreen:
but in the mean time a dream :oops: GTO 66 will do.

1984 928S
1970 Fairlane
1972 Ranchero
