Gotta love the American swager, we all want to be first!
because of GM's popularity, and commonality, most people want to cite them as producing the first muscle car with the GTO.

or the chrysler 300 with the big block, cross ram dual carb intake that made 500 ft lbs of torque
or what about the HEMI, first V8 to make 1 hp per cubic inch.
or what about the first OHV motor...I think it was an oldsmobile?
or what about the fords with their flat head V8s used by the shine runners?
