Muscle cars have exactly what the name implies, a maximum level of strength and power occupying the body of an otherwise ordinary motor vehicle. The classic muscle cars were largely a phenomena of the 1960s through the earlier portion of the 1970s, but many students of the muscle car era pinpoint the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket as the very first muscle car. The car had the two essential ingredients of the muscle cars to come: a lightweight body and a powerful V8 engine.
The muscle cars differed from the performance cars that traditionally came out of Europe in that they were affordable and available to people of ordinary means who had a need for speed. Opinions vary among people who are passionate about the topic concerning exactly what cars were and weren't true muscle cars. Popular muscle car models include the Pontiac GTO, Oldsmobile 442, Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Chevelle, AMC AMX, Ford Torino, Plymouth Road Runner, and Mercury Montego.
