What does everyone think of The Muscle Car Retro Look and bringing back old name plates? There a touch of an old classic muscle look with modern technology under the skin.
Examples: The Ford Mustang, Pontiac GTO, Dodge Charger, 2008 Dodge Challenger and a possible 2007 Chevrolet Camaro.
“My Take” First off, the idea of bringing back a Muscle Car retro look with an old name plate is interesting and it all depends on the vehicle’s look itself and whats under the skin that counts.
With that said, here they are….The Ford Mustang:
The Mustang doesn’t fit under this article, but I wanted to comment on it anyway. I love the new look, the style and what ford has done with it, most of the mustangs have looked great over the years including the Shelby’s and a 1968 Mustang Fastback GT as in the movie Bullitt, but the lastest model is perfect. Enough said.The Pontiac GTO & Dodge Charger:
Looking at the GTO from the outside doesn’t do it for me as a 1969 Pontiac GTO The Judge does, under the skin is great, but the outside look, looks like a Grand Prix or Grand-am, its a great sleeper car, but something I would buy. The same goes with the Dodge Charger, I have nothing against it, but the only thing I don’t like is the name plate, the name Charger doesn’t fit, plain and simple. Its a four-door sedan, not a two-door muscle car, next..
Check out this 1969 Pontiac GTO “The Judge”,
damn… looks incredible or would you prefer a stock look
…The Dodge Challenger Concept:
This is only a concept, but the look inside and out great, now that’s a muscle car look period.The Chevrolet Camaro:
I don’t know if this sketch is what they might produce or not, but Chevrolet should bring back the camaro to compete with both Dodge and Ford & for Chevrolet lovers everywhere.
I hope I touch on this topic a little, it is something that is going on right now.But One Thing:
As a NASCAR Nextel Cup fan, I would like to see the Chevy Camaro, the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger complete, the term drive on Sunday and Sell on Monday… plus I like to see something on the track that I can buy in the showrooms, they also look more like racecars.
