Muscle Cars: Why Now?

Almost everything said against the restoration muscle car of the '60s: Mustang, Camaro and Dodge Charger. The gas is about $ 3 per gallon, and if Iran has its way, the price can reach up to $ 5 and up. Sales of SUVs are ultimately the reduction, even Hummer are reducing. And there's that matter of political correctness. Sooner or later, Americans join the W and admit they are thirsty for gas toxic, and find coupons, patriotic. However, these concepts are not moisten the desire of muscle cars. Why are so attractive? In his moment of glory past, around 1964-1972, Vietnam was at its peak. Now we are in Iraq and an exit strategy from war, which seems almost as difficult as finding the path through the jungle was a more than thirty years ago. In 1950, the middle, we were given the Corvette and Thunderbird, along with the Korean War. I think there is a connection: if we are to the neck in the quicksand of foreigners, we like to kick butt back home, the streets, in a socially acceptable only have, by burning rubber. This muscle - mania has something to do with collective self-respect, I think. drove a 2005 Thunderbird car holiday recently and gave me a chill. I was happy to be getting a kick from a U.S. trip for a change. So, buckle and fun. And I quote the estimated EPA mileage on these hotties is not so bad! Dr. Gary S.
