    Kona good choice, that is one of my favorites as well. Although the picture you posted isn't an actual Shelby. It is a recreation Shelby built for the movie "Gone in 60 seeconds" the car was named Eleanor. After the movie Eleanor was so popular a company called Classic Recreations built a bunch of 1967 GT Mustangs and cloned them and badged them as 1967 Shelby 500's.

    To get back to my favorite's it would have to be two that I have owned.
    1969 GTO Ram Air IV Judge
    1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV Convertible - YouTube
    1971 CUDA' 340 the ultimate would be the HEMI CUDA'
    1970 & 1971 Plymouth Cuda Tribute - YouTube

    Of course I'm rather partial as here is my old 69' GTO Ram Air IV.
    I also owned a 71' CUDA 340 auto slap stick.

    Yeah I know about Elanor. That's my favorite version of the '67 Shelby GT 500 even though it was just a movie version. I also like the 2007 Shelby Super Snake. Over 725 HP. Wow!!

    I never was a Camaro lover. The older ones are great and look mean. This new one is just not appealing to me and besides they don't transform into a 18 foot tall Autobot.

    Of course I am a big fan of the newer Shelby Mustangs as well.

    That's what I was trying to tell you. The Eleanor version of the 1967 Shelby isn't just a movie version. It started as a movie version but was so popular that the company Classic Recreations makes them. They take 1967 GT Mustangs and "clone" them into Eleanor's. They badge them as GT 500's. You can buy one from them to order. It is not an actual Shelby but just a badass street car.

    Ohhh the muscle cars.... My favorite would have to be a Chevy 2. Awesome cars.
    My dad has a 73 dart sport that was a street car. Hasn't driven it in years but hoping to light a fire under his but and get the ball rolling.
    Also the 67 camaros and cudas are super high in the list.

    Fan if fox body mustangs as well. Alot of people ruin them IMO. Will definitely have one for a street car though

    You know what happens when any rich yahoo can go down to the Ford dealer and buy a new 2012' Shelby Super Snake at 750 H.P.
    Scenario: Laramie Wyoming a Ford dealership right next to a Chevy dealership. The Chevy dealership has a Camaro car show going on out front. A new owner of a Shelby Mustang Super Snake 750 H.P pulls out of the Ford dealership and shows off in front of the Camaro owners. It doesn't turn out so good when you're not used to that kinda power.

    There is always something special about the old Chargers. I love the Hemi engine.

    Some people don't consider it a muscle car but I have always loved the El Camino. My uncle had one like this when I was kid.

    Steve Lisk was one of the pioneers of the "Pro Street" movement along with Joe Ruggilero who had a Mustang II with a Roush big block. Car Craft did an extensive layout on the Challanger BITD. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Chevelle Love

    In particular, the 1965 model, although they are all great ('64-'72). More specifically, the '65 Malibu SS that hangs out in my garage, bought new by my parents in June 1965 when I was 2 years old. I've owned it since 1988 and restored it over several years.

    Hey I consider the Corvette a sports car, not a muscle car.

    Yes, the last one I sold was a 72 duster 340, still have a 69-1/2 road runner and a 37 D5. The road runner is in the process (of being ignored by me when I should be working on it.)

    Got my flame suite on, here is my import muscle car.
    It's rear wheel drive, semi old, and it has a Hemi in it. Doesn't run to bad either.
