"This Year was very difficult for me and my family. We came home late sunday night the first weekend of January to find our house on fire. After the realization that there isn't anything you can do to stop the situation, we had to sit and watch our home burn to ground with my first vehicle ever sitting in the carpool. My dad helped me purchase the car when I was only 14 and I started working side jobs to pay him back. It helped me learn a life lesson early on, that you have to work hard to get what you really want. Something I carried with me my whole life. The car was a true SS 1969 Chevelle, the original 396 was in storage and a 496 stroker big block was sitting in it place. The chevelle was 85-90% complete and waiting for funds to finish the interior and trim.After some very hard times and alot of heartbreak we have started rebuilding our home and now we'll be able to have a garage to have a proper place to restore our beloved chevelle. Plans include media blasting every piece and restore the chevelle better than before. Eastwood's product would be an amazing help with this huge task of restoring our beloved chevelle once again. Thank you for this opportunity, Emmanuel Koutouzos"
I'm ready to vote:
You know how it is when you're at a car show...you're shooting the bull with the boys when the discussion gets around to muscle cars. Everyone's got an opinion on what the top American muscle cars are, and each muscle car fan has his or her own "list".
But I came across this list on the SenseTheCar.com blog, and to me it's hard to argue with the choices (as long as it's not listed in any particular order!).
The cars are listed below. If you disagree, feel free to give us your list in the comments section below.
Immortalized forever as the "General Lee" in the TV show, "The Dukes of Hazzard".
"Critics in its day pointed out the sluggish steering, sparse interior and unsteady brakes, but once the GTO hit a straight line, it blew its competition out of the water."
"...in 1970, Chevrolet released a bombshell with the Chevelle SS and its jaw-dropping 450-horsepower engine."
"One of the longest-lived muscle car models, thanks to its persistent popularity."
"The most successful muscle car of all time...synonymous with the kind of raw power and thrills the world expects from a brilliant piece of American engineering."
