Fact Markerdown. Some of the Mopars were absolute monsters on the street. A hemi Roadrunner was just flat dangerous.

Showing my age (or lack therof) my first "muscle car" was a Mitsubishi Galant turbo that I built myself. My second was a SRT-4 Neon. I always wanted a brutish RWD car, but I was just born too late. By the time I started driving anything powerful was either a FWD or prohibitively expensive. I've driven everything from Metros to Vipers but the most powerful vehicle I've ever owned was the aformentioned Galant making 350 horses at the wheels. And it was hard to look cool spinning your front wheels at every stop light.

The newer cars are much nicer, but at least here in the desert, there's no way you're going to get 30-40 years out of one. The fuel injection, a lot of the wiring, and the plastic parts of every kind are just about done after 5-10 years in the heat. it would take very careful storage and limited use to make one last more than about 10 years.

Unfortunately for him, he pancaked it into a giant oak tree, leaving behind the front end, and part of his face, and one eye. That was probably the most memorable thing that happened (car-wise) in my coming-up years. Crazy thing was-his dad had it re-built, and he was zooming around in it a few months later, as one-eye Kurt. He also owned a '69 Firebird; Formula, if memory serves well.

Enjoy, and try not to slobber- :-P

Couldn't find the G-8 "GTO" on the Pontiac web page and the build your car feature doesn't work at all. If this is what GM and the Government are bringing us, they might as well close the doors now!!

Here is the only decent pic I could find!!

If it didn't have 400+ ci then it ain't no muscle car.

Mine is a 1970 Plymouth Superbird sporting a bored and stroked Keith Black HEMI. Cruising down the salt at a nice loping 218 mph.

I could say I had the fastest dad on the block. Seeing as he has set a WORLD LAND SPEED RECORD.

I had a GTO judge also. Forest green with those orange and black "The Judge" cartoon like stickers on the front fenders. Big block, 4 speed and it was pretty quick. Like a fool I sold it. That wasn't my first car though. It was a 1970 Olds Toronado GT, W34. The police had ordered some of these for highway pursuit cars. My dad ordered it from our local Olds dealer with all the bells and whistles. I loved that car. It was front wheel drive and would burn off through all gears and the smoke would just roll over the hood and down the side of the car like you were driving in a smoke tunnel, cool! Got a ticket for going 143 in a 35 zone, lost my license for a while and it cost a bunch of money but I havn't got a ticket since then (1978). I still have it. It needs restored but I havn't found the time to get to it yet. Now I drive this. 71 nova, 327, at. Cool car, pretty snappy but not like the ones I grew up with.

My first car, and first muscle car was a '70 Torino Cobra, with the 429 SCJ.

Don't have any pics of it, as that was the last thing I would think of at 17.5 yrs old and a car that looked alot like...

'New' GTO Judge-what a car! (big $) - The Club House

After running the car at the local drags, I got sponsored by a car dealer, who took the car, added a hi-rise w/ dual quads,ported and stroked, tubbed the rear end, added quick-change gearing, 12 point roll cage w/ fire extinguishers, safety loops on the drive shaft, etc. On a good night, it would run in the low 11's and high 10's with ease, normally going through in the high 140's. But summer ended, college started, and I ending up selling it to help pay for school. Kid who bought it from me wrapped it around a tree, while road racing with his buddies. He lived, the car was history.
